Assets to Give
- Cash – A gift of cash is the simplest, most straightforward and immediate way to give to Memorial Hospital Foundation. Cash gifts may be pledged over a period of up to five years and are fully deductible up to 50 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
- Appreciated Securities – A gift of long-term appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains taxes, currently at a maximum rate of 20 percent. In most cases, a donor can claim a charitable income tax deduction equal to the full fair market value of the appreciated securities. This gift is deductible up to 30 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
- Real Estate – In some cases, property can be given outright to support Memorial Hospital Foundation, and the donor receives a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the property. Real estate gifts can also be used to fund a life income arrangement.
