Charitable GivingWays to Give

Thank you for choosing to invest in our community’s healthcare future. Giving to the Swift County-Benson Health Hospital Foundation is one way to make a charitable contribution and support the mission of providing a continuum of quality health care services that support and enhance the well-being of our community.

Memorial/Tribute Gifts
Memorial and tribute gifts are a special way to recognize or remember loved ones or friends, or to commemorate a special occasion. These gifts can be made to support the hospital where needed or can be allotted to a specific program or area. To make a memorial or tribute gift you may mail your donation to: SCBH Foundation, 1815 Wisconsin Ave., Benson, MN 56215 or you can drop off your donation at the front desk of the Hospital. Please indicate who the donation is in memory of or in honor of.

Cash Gifts
The Foundation accepts checks, cash, and money orders. Please make checks payable to SCBH Foundation.

Planned Gifts
A planned gift is a wonderful way to provide future support of the SCBH mission. Leaving your legacy through wills, revocable trusts, and life insurance are a few ways for you to consider while planning your estate. For more information on planned giving contact Jerry Peterson, SCBH Foundation Chair at 320-760-2416.
