Planned giving

  • Planned giving

    United Hospital Foundation offers a variety of giving opportunities:

    • Cash – The simplest way to give, your cash donation is deductible from federal and state income taxes.
    • Securities – The full market value of long-term appreciated securities may be deducted, allowing you to avoid taxes on the capital gains.
    • Real estate – If the property has appreciated in value and is given outright, you avoid any tax on the capital gains, reduce your taxable estate by the value of the donation, and receive a 100 percent charitable deduction.
    • Life insurance – Life insurance policies are a good way to provide a lasting gift.
    • Event sponsors – Sponsorship opportunities create a win-win partnership between donor and hospital.
    • Outright gifts
    • Monthly endowment gifts
    • Bequest gifts
    • Major gifts – For capital improvement to facilities, equipment and programs.
    • Gift-in-kind donations – Gift certificates, travel vouchers, rental property use, and sporting or theater tickets bring financial support and company awareness to events.
    • Gifts of closely held stock
    • Gifts of retirement plan assets
    • Company matching gifts
    • Tele-fundraising: Consider giving a gift if a call is received
    • Remember, monthly giving is always an option

    Heritage Society

    The Heritage Society was established to recognize those patrons who make a planned gift to the United Hospital Foundation in their will, estate plans or named endowment fund. The Tree of Life, in the hospital lobby, reflects permanent, public recognition of our generous donors. The Heritage Society members are also featured in the Foundation newsletter.
