Matching Gifts
Matching Gift programs are offered by many employers to contribute corporate money to causes that are important to the company's employees. For each dollar the employee contributes, the employer also contributes a specified percentage, dramatically increasing the impact of the employee's gift.

Contact your company's Human Resources Department for a Matching Gift form, fill it out and mail it to the Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital Development Department, P.O. Box 17, Nassawadox, VA 23413.

Planned Gifts
As Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital continues to provide excellent healthcare, we must also plan for the future. Our legacy to our children and grandchildren will be the very best healthcare in a setting that is affordable and close to home. Planned Gifts play an important role in building a solid future for our community's healthcare needs.

Planned giving opportunities, such as life insurance policies in which Shore Health Services is named as a beneficiary, gift annuities, trusts, and bequests of cash, stock or real estate are also encouraged.

By making a Planned Gift to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, you will join an extraordinary group of concerned individuals who share your desire to provide the very best in healthcare. Riverside is happy to work with your personal financial counsel in arranging a Planned Gift.

A Tribute Gift to Riverside offers you the opportunity to honor a loved one in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
