Areas to Support

Through the Theda Clark Medical Center Foundation you are able to choose from several ways in which your gift may be used to support the Hospital.  You can designate your gift to a particular area, or provide the Foundation with the authority to address the greatest needs.  The Foundation offers two kinds of funds.

  • Restricted Funds designate your donation to a particular need. To learn more about these opportunities, please see the list below.
  • Endowed Named Funds are permanent named funds that carry on into perpetuity providing support now and for generations to come.  With a gift of $10,000 or more, over three-to-five years, donors may establish endowed named funds to be administered in support of a particular Hospital program or initiative. To establish an endowment fund, please call the Theda Clark Medical Center Foundation at (920) 720-7322 or e-mail
