“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
           -Winston Churchill

As Edgerton Hospital’s fundraising organization, the Capital Foundation’s purpose is to secure donations for the funding of special projects, medical equipment, programs and the overall “Healthy Village.”

We work with many generous community members and would like to thank everyone who supports Edgerton Hospital.

2019 Update

We are looking forward to another exciting year of supporting our local hospital! Edgerton Hospital Capital Foundation has already had some great steps forward on fundraising for its programs and the Healing Garden development. I want to invite you, if Edgerton Hospital is a special place for you, to be a part of our success this year. Perhaps you or your family has received care at Edgerton Hospital, or perhaps illness has affected you in another way. Some of our most involved supporters simply believe in the necessity of Edgerton Hospital’s work and expertise in the Edgerton, Milton and surrounding communities. In any case, we hope that you will join us, and we wish you the very best in the year ahead!

Ways to give to the Foundation:

The principal source of support for Edgerton Hospital is gifts we receive from our philanthropic community. These gifts may take the form of in-kind gifts of services or supplies, donations from your own business or in coordination with your employer, a bequest or a recurring gift that repeats on a schedule, or simply a check you are inspired to write today. If you wish, donations can be designated to go to a specific development project or department in the hospital, though any department or program will welcome your support.

The choice to give to your hospital is a choice from the heart, and your gift is meaningful to us and makes a difference, regardless of size.
