Ways to give to the bon Secours Richmond Health Care foundation

Matching Gifts

Many employers have matching-gift programs through which your generosity can be multiplied. As a non-profit institution, the Foundation is eligible for many matching-gift programs of corporations, foundations and other organizations.

In Memory or In Honor

Any gift can be made in memory or in honor of a special person or event. Such thoughtful gifts can help ensure a healthier future for your friends, neighbors or loved ones. At the same time, it enables you to send a powerful thank you to a physician, nurse or other caregiver.

When making your gift, please indicate the name of the person you wish to honor and provide a mailing address as appropriate on the giving form.  Please address your correspondence to the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation.

We will be honored to send a notification of your generous remembrance to the individual or individuals memorialized or honored (and the gift amount is not disclosed). We will also recognize these individuals on our Memorials and Tribute page.  To include a picture of the person you would like to honor, please email us your desired picture at info_bsvaf@bshsi.org.

    "It has been a rewarding experience working with the Care-A-Van through the Reach Out & Read program. It is such a wonderful experience to see a child's eyes light up when they walk through the door and see the books. They will take their time looking through all the books before selecting that special one they get to take home. And what a great, warm feeling it is when you read to a child. I feel I am getting much more than I am giving."

-- Donna P. Morris, Nurse Manager at Memorial Regional Medical Center and volunteer
