Other ways to give


Gifts of appreciated securities provide considerable advantages to donors. When securities have been held for the required period of time, a donor can deduct the full fair market value of the gift and avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciated amount of the securities.

Charitable Gifts from IRAs

If you are over age 70 ½, you can direct the Custodian of your IRA to transfer up to $100,000 of your IRA to Med Center Health Foundation, every year, free of income tax. Any distribution made to Med Center Health Foundation counts toward your required minimum distribution for that year. Because the distribution is not included in your taxable income for that year, the distribution does not give rise to a charitable income tax deduction.


An endowment is a permanent fund designed for a specific purpose by the donor. Endowments serve as valuable incentives to attract similar philanthropic donors to Med Center Health and form legacies that continue our mission of improving healthcare in the communities we serve. Med Center Health Foundation can help you achieve your philanthropic goals through the establishment of an endowment.

Planned Giving

Planned giving includes major financial planning and/or estate planning gifts given during or after the donor’s lifetime. Gifts may include life insurance, equity, real estate, personal property or cash.

Life Insurance

Gifts of life insurance allow donors to make sizable gifts at relatively low cost. By assigning ownership of a life insurance policy to the Foundation, you receive an immediate tax deduction and eliminate the proceeds of the policy from the estate.

One-Time Gifts

No amount is too small, and every gift is appreciated. If you would like to help, please visit our Donate page through the link below.
