Planned Giving Programs

Why include Regional Health Foundation in your overall financial and estate planning? Strategic charitable investments can provide you with important tax benefits now and in the future. Your planned gifts also give you the satisfaction of supporting improved health care for yourself, your family, and your community.

Gifts That Make an Impact After Your Lifetime

Bequests: 

For many donors, a gift through their will is the best way to make a substantial contribution to the hospital. Anyone with assets can make a bequest. If you have included Regional Health Foundation in your will, please let us know so that we may properly acknowledge you. However, if you wish, your information will be kept in strict confidence.

Endowments:
 
The Regional Health Foundation’s endowments support the programs, and services of Regional Health in perpetuity. With the endowment’s growth through investment and charitable giving, the Foundation will be able to  provide funds to support equipment purchases, programs and capital endeavors.
 
An endowed fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of support. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and support its designated purpose in perpetuity. When you establish an endowment fund, you create a permanent legacy of support of Regional Health.
 
Endowment Gift Types -
 
General Endowment Gift
 
You can make a gift of any size to the Regional Health Foundation’s general endowment fund. Every gift added to the general endowment provides more income for the Foundation to help Regional Health meet opportunities and needs. There may be an existing endowment that reflects your interests and to which you can add your support.

The Granite Society: 

The Regional Health Foundation has created the Granite Society to recognize individual donors who have selected to include a Regional Health program in their estate plans or in a planned gift arrangement. If you have been thinking about Regional Health in your estate planning, let us know so that we may properly thank you in next year’s Donor Report with your own special designation as a member of the Granite Society.
