What is the monthly giving program?
The monthly giving program allows donors to easily make their gift to Ridgeview Foundation in regular monthly installments from a credit card or checking/savings account.
How does it help Ridgeview Foundation?
Monthly contributions provide Ridgeview Medical Center with an on-going, reliable source of funding. Gifts made through this program reduce our administrative costs and allow more of each gift to be used immediately to support Ridgeview’s top priorities. Monthly gifts are also "greener," by cutting down on use of paper and gas, and emissions produced by mailings.
How does it help you?
Enrolling in the program means you won’t have to worry about writing and sending a check, and the number of phone and mail reminders you receive from Ridgeview Foundation will decrease. If you choose to allow deductions to continue from year to year, you will be counted among Ridgeview’s most loyal and valued donors.
Monthly giving also allows you to make your yearly contribution at the Ridgeview Friends & Family* or Founder’s Society** levels because your gift is divided into manageable monthly increments. Please consider joining one of these giving clubs.
Monthly amounts may need to be adjusted during the first year if enrollment begins after January to ensure the desired giving level is achieved.
|Giving Level||Monthly Contribution||Annual Amount|
|Platinum: Founder’s Society||$83.34||$1,000|
