Donating to Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS) Foundation just got a lot more rewarding—even fun—thanks to an innovative new software program that allows potential donors to see the impact of their gift through the screen of a laptop, well before the new University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP) opens its doors in may 2012.
Supporters who make a gift or pledge of $2,500 or more to the Design for Healing campaign can navigate an interactive copy of the actual floor plan. This allows donors to pinpoint the area of the hospital they wish to support by viewing the available UMCPP naming opportunities and their exact locations.
“This software is an amazing tool that allows donors to be part of the excitement of the new hospital’s imminent opening by giving them a preview of the facility’s layout. It allows donors to visualize how their contribution was put to work in the new hospital while bringing the new hospital to life in a way that has never been done before,” said Joe Stampe, Vice President of Development, PHCS.
Naming opportunities for giving levels ranging from $2,500 to $100 million are still available. For example,
- For a gift or pledge of $100,000, a donor may name the central nurses’ station in the Intensive Care Unit.
- For a gift or pledge of $25,000, a donor may choose from 231 different patient rooms to name with a plaque.
- For a gift or pledge of $7,500, a donor may name a nursing substation in the Nursery.
- For a gift or pledge of $2,500, a donor may name the computer station in the Emergency Department, which will be used by families and patients.
Potential donors are welcome to schedule a personal meeting with a PHCS Foundation representative to view naming opportunities using this new software. More than 1,000 naming opportunities are available to donors to the campaign. Acknowledgments for all gift commitments made prior to December 31, 2011, will be installed by the May 2012 opening of the new hospital. Please contact PHCS Foundation to plan your gift in time for this historic event.
