Good health is the beginning of so much that is important in life. Without it, goals are hard to achieve. That’s why the United Regional Foundation is passionate about supporting excellence in healthcare, both inside United Regional Health Care System and out in the community. 

Since 1988, the Foundation has supported United Regional with equipment, technologies, capital projects, and community health initiatives. For over 30 years, we have partnered with Children’s Miracle Network to serve our pediatric patients. 

United Regional receives no city taxes to offset uncompensated charity care. As an independent health care system, we rely on donations and operational income to reinvest in and continually elevate our people, technology, and facilities. Your support helps us provide vital unduplicated services to move friends, family, and neighbors to improved health.

Tribute Gifts

As a lasting symbol of respect and love or a unique tribute to a friend or associate, living  or deceased, many families have found comfort in gifts to the United Regional Foundation made to the memory or in honor of loved ones.

The Tribute program can provide a way to honor someone you care about or wish to remember in a special way.  Honorariums can be made for birthdays, anniversaries or just to say “I appreciate you.”  Memorials may be made at any time, such as on the birthday of the loved one, the anniversary of death, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Memorial Day.

Upon receipt of your gift, we will send a special card to the person being honored announcing your gift.  If your gift is in memory of someone, a card will be sent to the family.  The amount of your gift is never mentioned in the card, and you will receive an acknowledgement of your gift for personal record-keeping.

Current Gifts

Cash – A cash gift by check is one of the most common and easiest methods for making a contribution. You will receive a charitable deduction if you itemize on your tax return and see the immediate results of your generosity.

Credit card – A credit card gift is often a choice of many. Simply call the Foundation office at 940-764-8205, or click on the Donate Now button below.

Legacy Circle

Comprised of those whose estate plans include United Regional Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network. The Legacy Circle honors those whose generosity and foresight will make an enduring and positive difference in the lives of others. Gifts for the future help support excellence in health care for all the communities served by United Regional. Your help is needed as we plan the many facility improvements, new programs, and equipment purchases necessary to touch and improve lives in north Texas. Legacy Circle membership is available for those who notify United Regional Foundation that they have included the Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network at United Regional in their estate plans.

A planned gift is one legally provided for during the donor’s lifetime, but whose principal benefits do not accrue to the charity until some time in the future, such as the death of the donor and/or the income beneficiary or at some specific date. For more information contact the Foundation or call 940-764-8205.

United Regional Foundation would be grateful to accept a wide variety of planned or legacy charitable gifts, the most common of which are briefly described below.

Bequests – The most common form of gift planning, a bequest, is a gift of an asset through a donor’s will. The amount of the bequest is not included in the donor’s taxable estate. Your may designate a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue of your estate.

Life Insurance – You may include United Regional Foundation as sole beneficiary or a percentage beneficiary of an existing policy or name United Regional Foundation as the new owner of a paid up policy.

Pension Funds – Naming United Regional as the beneficiary of your pension or IRAs or making the Foundation the beneficiary through the “Pay on Death” provision of certificates of deposit and savings accounts are additional ways of making gifts that take effect after your death.
