Ways to give
Many of us think of ways we can make a difference in someone’s life. Supporting Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation is a great way to show you believe our community deserves the best healthcare possible. There are several ways for you to make a gift to the Foundation that will be cherished and valued throughout the years to come.
A gift to the Foundation is a lasting tribute. Whether honoring someone who has made a difference in your life or to celebrate the memory of a loved one, the most satisfying gift is the one that continues to give.
Gifts can be made by donating:
- Cash or checks
- Stocks or bonds
Remember or honor someone
Memorials provide lasting recognition of deceased friends and loved ones. Memorial can also be established so that others may donate.
Honor gifts are a way to celebrate life, recognize a special person or life event, or express good wishes. These gifts are wonderful ways to mark marriages, anniversaries, birthdays, or say thank you to volunteers, doctors, or nurses.
The annual appeal mailing goes out in November and provides a strong base of revenue for project funding for the following year. Please contact the Foundation Director to make sure that you are on the mailing list.
Multi-year pledges allow the donor to make a larger gift and to determine a manageable donation schedule. The Foundation benefits from a solid, predictable base of support.
The Foundation can also assist with planned giving
Planned gifts offer several benefits to the donor, including providing an ongoing income stream, easing your current tax liability, and reducing capital gains tax or future estate tax. Deferred gifts can support the Foundation without impact on your current income or lifestyle. Donors can designate the Foundation as a beneficiary of retirement plan assets or life insurance policies.
Planned gifts also include gifts through your will, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life estate contracts, charitable lead trusts, and pooled income funds. Please contact your financial advisor for details. Bequests from a properly executed will, living trust, inter vivos trust, or testamentary trust will be accepted in accord with the donor’s wishes and in accord with the mission and purposes of the Foundation. The Board reserves the right to refuse all or part of any bequest that does not serve to further the missions of the Hospital or the Foundation, or for any other reason determined by the Board.
All donations are recognized and are used for the benefit of the Hospital and its patients and staff.
