Tribute Gifts

Be sure to tell us who you are honoring, and provide that person’s name and address so we can notify them of your gift in their honor.  All tribute gifts will be acknowledged with a certificate to the person you designate. We will not share the amount of your gift, just the news of your thoughtfulness.  Make a tribute gift now by completing the donation formPlease make your check payable to the Appleton Medical Center Foundation.

Team Giving

We encourage our supporters to involve their family, friends, co-workers, employers and employees in raising funds for the Appleton Medical Center Foundation. These can be considered “Third Party Events” which are hosted by individuals and/or organization external to Appleton Medical Center Foundation. There are many options when joining together as a team to raise money for the Foundation. We’ve listed some of the most popular ones below:

  • Organize your own sporting tournament – golf outing, tennis match, bowling tournament, etc. – with proceeds being directed to the Foundation.
  • Host a bake or craft sale with proceeds directed towards the Appleton Medical Center Foundation.
  • Rather than exchanging gifts at the holidays, funds can be collected and donated to Appleton Medical Center Foundation.
  • Ask your employer if employees can “pay” to wear jeans to the office or host “penny wars” between departments with funds collected designated to support the Foundation.

To inquire about hosting your own event, please contact Cindy Stuedemann, Development Assistant, at (920) 738-6478 or by email at cynthia.stuedemann@thedacare.org.
