What is the Foundation?
Supporting Healthcare in North Central Arkansas
Baxter Regional Medical Center is a not-for-profit hospital. We only charge
patients the bare minimum of what we need in order to cover the basic
expenses of their treatment. This is invaluable for providing accessible
healthcare to North Central Arkansas and South Central Missouri, but makes
it difficult for the hospital to grow. That’s where the Baxter Regional
Hospital Foundation (BHRF) comes in.
Healthcare is always changing. New technology is designed to more effectively
and safely treat patients in methods that are as minimally invasive as
possible. Not only is it important for hospitals to purchase this new
tech, they must also provide the staff access to education and training
opportunities so that they can properly utilize the newest medical procedures.
While this growth benefits the community as a whole, we do not believe
the people who need our help should be the ones to pay for it. The foundation
creates fundraising opportunities so that generous members of the community
can contribute to BRMC and help us remain as one of the most advanced
hospitals in the region.
Money well spent
The BRHF finds many unique ways to fund growth for the medical center,
- Annual campaigns – yearly mailings to former patients and community
members. The mailing may include an update on the hospital’s activities
and growth, but always includes an appeal for a gift. The Baxter Regional
Hospital Foundation conducts an annual campaign.
- Capital campaigns – one-time efforts over limited periods of time
to raise funds for specific projects, such as a new facility, new equipment
or a new service.
- Planned giving – when a person leaves part of his or her estate for
the hospital foundation in a will, or establishes a charitable gift annuity
or trust. The Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation is licensed through
the state of Arkansas to issue charitable gift annuities.
- Endowments – investments set up by the foundation for the hospital.
The money for the investment comes from contributions. The returns go
to the hospital, but the original money isn’t touched. This provides
a stable, long-term income source for the hospital.
- Special events and programs, such as Lend-a-Hand, Employee Fund Drive,
Dinner & Wine Tasting, Paws for the Cause Pet Calendar, 5K Runs and
Craft and Bake Sales.
- Major gifts, large one-time donations from individual donors.
Contributions help with building or maintaining facilities, buying new
equipment/latest technology, medical scholarships and support of our community
health education houses.
