There are several ways to donate to the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic. Here are a few ways to support us.

Endowment Fund

The Sawtooth Mountain Clinic Endowment Fund was started by a generous donation from the Frank Hansen estate to support the recruitment and retention of talented physicians to the Cook County community. Frank Hansen, former SMC board member and president, was dedicated to the community of Cook County and believed in the mission of the SMC. We are extremely grateful for his service and for the support and vision he gave to this clinic. We are honored to continue his legacy through the Endowment Fund.

These funds serve as a unique and powerful tool in attracting and retaining high-quality physicians, those who are committed to excellence and the welfare of their patients.

Estate Giving

A gift from your estate is a simply way to make a future, lasting gift to the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic. Monies gifted ensure that quality, compassionate health care will be available to the residents of this county for decades to come.

As an estate giver, you retain the use of the asset during your lifetime and the ability to modify your gift. Estate gifts can be made through a will, revocable (living) trust agreements, retirements plans or life insurance.

Please consult with your lawyer or estate planner for more information.

If you have special requests or would like for your donation to be made in honor of a loved one, please contact us and we will help you fulfill your memorial wishes.
