There are few philanthropic giving opportunities whose benefits are as tangible as a gift to your local hospital. By supporting the Foundation, you make a substantial impact in maintaining the excellent level of care at IVCH. Philanthropic gifts help us provide the highest quality of care to our patients and make the broadest possible impact on health care in our community. IVCHF is a non-profit organization as provided under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, incorporated in the State of Nevada.

The Foundation Board of Directors and staff are dedicated to building enduring relationships with our donors as well as prospective donors who share the Hospital's commitment to advancing patient care and the health and wellness of our community. There are many opportunities for donors to give in a way that matches their philanthropic interests. Donors are welcomed to discuss the best match of their individual and family charitable intent with board members or the IVCH Foundation Executive Director, Karli Epstein.

Each and every gift is important, no matter the amount.

The Foundation welcomes all gifts, regardless of the size.  As the only hospital on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, it is imperative that IVCH continue to provide critical medical care for this region.  Nearby access to health care for your family and neighbors is one of the most important elements of a stable and prosperous community. The Foundation ensures that the Hospital sustains as community resource for years to come.

Our dedicated team of medical professionals provides life-saving emergency care.

The Incline Village Community Hospital provides emergency care to approximately 4,000 patients a year. The cause for visits to the ER range from head injuries, stroke, heart attack, internal bleeding, lacerations, infections, to broken bones. Everyone that comes to the Emergency Room shares one thing in common - they need serious medical attention quickly. We are proud to say that the average wait time for an ER visit at IVCH is significantly lower than any other hospital in the Reno/Tahoe area.

Will my gift really make a difference?

Incline Village Community Hospital Foundation utilizes support from donors to enhance the patient care experience.  Currently funds are being used to provide technology and equipment upgrades for the hospital so that IVCH does not have to rely solely on its revenue to keep up with medical advancements and offer them in our local community. By supporting the Foundation, you make a substantial impact in maintaining the excellent level of care at IVCH.  Charitable gifts allow our hospital to remain a thriving and vital community resource.

May I specify how I want the Foundation to use my gift?

Yes. You may specify your gift designation to one of our current giving opportunities when making a gift.
