Ways to Give

Grateful Patient Program

Patients who receive exceptional care often ask how they can say “thank you” to the people who made a difference. The Grateful Patient and Family Program is a unique way to do just that. You can share your story, make a tax deductible gift or support a program or initiative you are passionate about. This meaningful way to say thank you can help create a legacy of continual quality care!

Turn your appreciation into action today! Call 352.751.8871 or mail your check to UF Health TVH Auxiliary Foundation at 1501 N. US Highway 441, Suite 1829, The Villages, FL 32159.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is a contribution that is established in the present, but typically allocated for a future date. Commonly donated through a will or trust, gifts of stock or charitable gift annuities, planned gifts are a simple way to make an impact on patient care while leaving a legacy of philanthropy.  If you are interested in providing for the long term future of UF Health The Villages® Hospital via bequests, charitable gift annuities, appreciated securities, insurance policies, employee giving, corporate matching funds, or cash donations please call 352.751.8871 or email TVRHAF@shands.ufl.edu.

Room Naming Program

Our beautiful facility offers numerous naming opportunities in recognition of significant gift commitments. This is one of the many ways in which you can become a part of the legacy of UF Health The Villages® Hospital. Room naming sponsors receive a plaque with a personalized inscription dedicating a patient room or other designated area. Learn more by calling the Foundation office at 352.751.8871.

Commemorative Brick Program

The Sharon L. Morse Celebration Garden is nestled between UF Health The Villages® Hospital and the neighboring medical center to provide patients, families, visitors, and hospital team members with a tranquil area to relax and reflect. The four pathways surrounding the garden contain thousands of red bricks that can be engraved to celebrate, honor or memorialize any occasion – even a special pet pathway!

Your tax deductible gift will reserve your brick(s) for engraving and placement and, for each brick reserved, your recipient will receive a letter acknowledging your gift. The installation of bricks is completed several times throughout the year and, once your bricks have been placed, you and your designated individual(s) will be invited to a reception to view your gift.

To learn more about the commemorative brick program and other initiatives of the Auxiliary Foundation, call us at 352.751.8871.
