Supporting Community Health Services

The Grady Memorial Hospital Foundation is a planned giving organization that supports the outstanding medical services and programs of Grady Memorial Hospital. All donations are fully tax-deductible. The nonprofit Foundation is dedicated to fund-raising efforts on behalf of the Hospital, which has achieved a reputation as a medical facility with the finest physicians, as well as an array of specialty care services, community health programs and quality of life activities.

Since its founding in 1959, Grady Memorial Hospital has been fulfilling its mission to provide compassionate, exemplary, cost-effective health care services that are responsive to the ever-changing needs of our community. What began years ago has evolved into a multifaceted beacon of health care excellence, a major center for care, and a multi-specialty clinic site. Grady Memorial is home to many leading-edge health care services in central Oklahoma.

As a nonprofit organization, Grady Memorial relies on the generosity of friends within our walls and within the communities we serve to uphold our exceptional standard of care. The Foundation is a separate organization established to conduct fund-raising activities for the sole benefit of the Hospital, and to manage and allocate donations to the Hospital in accordance with donor wishes. Over the years, many caring individuals, corporations and foundations have played a significant role in bringing new medical technologies, new facilities and enhanced patient care initiatives to our community.

Legacy of Caring /Legacy of Excellence

Generous community support is rooted in Grady's legacy of caring and is part of our blueprint for the future as we move forward to expand and enhance its medical capabilities, bringing an ever-increasing quality of health care to our community.

Planned Giving

A substantial number of forward-thinking supporters wish to preserve Grady Memorial's legacy of health care excellence for future generations by including a gift to Grady Memorial in their estate planning. Aside from the tax advantages associated with planned giving strategies, making a deferred gift allows you to support a favorite charity without jeopardizing current or future income. By including Grady Memorial in your estate planning, you have the opportunity to affiliate yourself indefinitely with the Hospital mission and ensure that outstanding health care will continue to enrich the lives of you or your neighbors for generations to come.

Any individual, corporation, foundation or other organization may make a gift payable to the Grady Memorial Hospital Foundation. Gifts or bequests to the Foundation attain full tax benefits for the donor. All gifts made to Grady Memorial remain at Grady Memorial and are used for the sole benefit of the Hospital and the community we serve.

It all comes back to you!
