Name a Room in the Benefis South Tower
Through named gifts, the South Tower presents a unique opportunity to carry on a legacy. Named gifts start at $5,000 and include attractive signage placed inside or adjacent to the space named by the donor. It's a special way to forever honor a loved one, pay tribute to a family or recognize an organization for many years to come. Excellent tax benefits make this type of charitable giving especially interesting.

Donors have the opportunity to memorialize a loved one, honor a mentor or caregiver, or display their individual or business's support of the South Tower through adopting a chair in the Cameron Auditorium, a state-of-the-art academic facility. Multi-payment options are available for the tax-deductible gift of $2,500 to adopt a chair and support healthcare in this distinctive way.
Camp Francis is a special five-day camp for children ages 6 to 12 who are grieving the death of a family member or someone who was very special to them. The activities at Camp Francis are designed to provide children with a safe place to laugh, cry, experience their emotions and remember their loved ones. During the week the children have an opportunity to participate in a powerful drum circle, led by professional musicians. Drumming allows grieving children to express their feelings without using words, and the participants are flooded with a sense of unity and connection.
Camp Francis, a service through Benefis Peace Hospice of Montana, is free to the children thanks to the support of Benefis and the generous donors who contribute to camp through Benefis Health System Foundation. Donors have the option of sponsoring or endowming a camper, purchasing Camp Francis wish list items, supporting the Camp Francis operating fund or endowment, or sponsoring a drum. It costs only $250 to sponsor a drum, and the donor is able to write the inscription that will appear on the drum used at the camp long into the future.

Buying and inscribing a paver is a special way to show your forever support for the finest comprehensive cancer center in Northcentral Montana.

Benefis Health System Foundation has had a Named Scholarship Endowment program supported by many generous donors for years. In 2008, the Foundation added a general Named Endowment program so donors could create a family legacy or honor someone who’s made a difference in their lives and also benefit the healthcare fund that is most meaningful to them. We would love to help you set up your own endowment!
