Types of Gifts
Annual and Outright Gifts
Allegheny General Hospital benefits substantially from the generosity of individuals and organizations who support the Hospital's Highest Priority Fund through an outright gift or gifts given on an annual basis through various annual appeals. The Hospital's Highest Priority Fund is used to offset operating expenses with the savings redirected toward supporting patient services, clinical programs, and research efforts. Contributors can also direct their support to a specific department or program.
