Donation of Cash/Check

Gifts of cash can be made all at once, or pledged over a period of time. Please indicate how you would like your gift designated by including a note, or in the memo section on your check. All checks should be made payable to the Dominican Hospital Foundation and mailed to:

Dominican Hospital Foundation 
1555 Soquel Drive 
Santa Cruz, CA 95065


Gifts may be made at any time online through credit card payment. Please click and follow the prompts to designate your gift and if you so choose to recognize a caregiver or make the gift in honor/memory of a loved one. We will also send a notification letter to the person or family of the tribute gift received, no gift amount enclosed.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts, directed for the same purpose as your gift, will be counted as a contribution over and above your personal gift or pledge payment. Depending on your employer, your gift could be matched 1:1, 2:1, and sometimes 3:1—making a significant impact on the project of your choice! If you work at a matching gift company and want to multiply your gift to Dominican, please follow your employers guidelines. Please reach out to the Foundation office at 831.462.7712 or email for more information.
