How do we do it?

The Valley Hospital Foundation and its employees are thoughtful and careful stewards of donor funds. The Foundation is a proud member of the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy and we abide by the Donor Bill of Rights. We have earned the 2019 Bronze Seal of Transparency from Guidestar, which is only achieved by 2% of all charities listed.

The Donor Bill of Rights


Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

"Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), all rights reserved. Reprinted with permission from the Association of Fundraising Professionals."

The Valley Hospital Foundation is committed to providing the best service possible to ensure that gifts are used according to our donors’ intentions. Like other organizations that depend on philanthropic support, the Foundation needs to cover administrative costs incurred in responsibly managing its fundraising operations. As approved by the Valley Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees in March 2019, the current administrative fee assessed on all temporarily restricted gifts is 15% of the total gift amount.
