Supporting and Improving the Care You Receive
Make a Donation. | Make a Difference.
Culbertson Memorial Hospital Foundation greatly appreciates any and all gifts that help support its mission. The Foundation board exercises sound judgement in its stewardship responsibilities and assures donors their gifts will be used exclusively for their designated purposes. Our organization maintains a wide array of funds to choose from or you can directly support a specific department within the hospital.
It’s your choice - Select a Need to Support.
Annual Campaign Fund
With your support, Culbertson Memorial Hospital Foundation will continue our legacy of providing the hospital with the latest advanced technology. Each year in November we select a new clinical equipment project and run a three-month-long Annual Campaign from December through February.
Memorial or Honorarium
The Foundation gratefully recognizes contributions given in memory or honor of a special person or event. We acknowledge your tribute to loved ones with a note to family members informing them of your thoughtfulness. In addition, gifts totaling $500 or more are acknowledged with a plaque on our donor wall in the name of the memorialized or honored person.
Sarah's Society (Bequests & Estates)
Sarah's Society was established to recognize, honor and thank those persons who support Culbertson Memorial Hospital Foundation through bequests and estates—a gift that costs nothing during the donor’s lifetime. Those honored as members of Sarah's Society are recognized in a special display at the hospital (unless donor wishes to remain anonymous).
Education Funds for Health Profession Scholarships
Shortage of qualified healthcare professionals, particularly in rural communities, are a growing problem. One of the best ways to assure a steady, well-educated workforce is to encourage people to enter a healthcare field through scholarship programs. Your gift will keep that tradition going.
- Scholarships are given annually by the Elmer Hugh Taylor Health Profession Scholarship Fund—open to area high school seniors or college students who reside in the Culbertson Memorial Hospital service area of Schuyler, Brown, Cass, and South Fulton Counties and who are entering a health-related field of study.
- Additional scholarships are given by the Regina Erhardt Scholarship Fund—awarded to any Rushville-Industry High School or Brown County High School graduate attending school for a health-related field of study.
- Funds raised from our Annual Chicken Noodle Dinner, held in November, support the employee scholarship program. To support, attend the event or make an individual donation to the program.
Applications for any of the scholarship programs are available from the offices of career counselors in area high schools or can be downloaded here.
