Ways to Give
Your gift to the Tuality Healthcare Foundation has an immediate impact on the community. It supports vital educational programs, provides high-quality healthcare to all members of the community regardless of their ability to pay, and assures that we all benefit from the latest technological advances in medical equipment.
Choose to make a one-time gift of cash, or consider a larger gift by extending your contribution over a three- to five-year pledge period.
- Appreciated Securities
A gift of appreciated securities allows the donor to make a more substantial contribution while enjoying significant tax advantages. The donor may avoid capital gains tax, and be eligible for an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stocks (if held for over one year).
- Real Estate/Tangible Property
Gifts of real estate and tangible property can offer similar tax advantages as appreciated securities, though certain restrictions may apply.
- Planned Gifts
You can play a role in securing Tuality’s ability to serve the community for years to come by including the Tuality Healthcare Foundation in your estate plan. In addition to benefiting the hospital and its work, these types of gifts often provide significant financial benefits for the donor as well.
There are three common types of planned gifts:
Including the Tuality Healthcare Foundation in your will is one of the simplest forms of planned giving. You may choose to bequeath cash, a particular asset, or a percentage of your estate. If you have included Tuality in your will, please let us know so we can recognize you in our Heritage Society.
- Gift Annuities
Gift annuities offer tax benefits while providing a steady income stream. Based on the value of your gift, your age, current rates of return, etc., you will receive fixed payments on a regular basis for the rest of your life. A portion of that payment is tax-free, and in most cases, you can enjoy additional tax benefits right away.
- Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
A Charitable Remainder Trust is a great way to make a significant gift to the Tuality Healthcare Foundation, reduce or avoid capital gains and estate taxes, and enjoy a steady income stream. With a CRT, your assets go into a trust now, and the trust pays a corresponding dollar amount to you or the beneficiary of your choice over an established period of time. At the end of that period, the remaining asset would be transferred to the Foundation.
These are just a few of the ways you can include the Tuality Healthcare Foundation in your estate planning. We invite you or your financial advisor to contact the Foundation office for more information about planned giving options at 503.681.1170.
Any gift to the Tuality Healthcare Foundation may be made as a memorial or tribute in the name of a friend or loved one. Whether you are celebrating a birth, mourning a loss, or honoring people who have touched your life in other ways, commemorative giving is a special way to show your appreciation. An acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to the person or family you are honoring, notifying them of your contribution without specifying the amount.
