Ways to Give OUTRIGHT GIFTS: Cash, check, publicly-traded stock, credit card, or online gifts are gratefully accepted. These gifts immediately “go to work” for the Hospital. The Annual Fund (also called the Linda Richards Society) supports the purchase of new equipment and the expansion of programs and services. Unless they request to be anonymous, all members of the Linda Richards Society are included in this annual report and on a donor list, which changes annually, near the main entrance to the Hospital. Memorial Gifts are a unique way you can honor the memory of a special person. Those for whom we have received more than $100 in memorial donations are permanently listed in a display near the main entrance to the Hospital. Gifts of Gratitude are a special way to say “thank you” to a physician, nurse, or other health care provider, for taking care of you or a loved one. We’ll be sure to let the honoree know about your thoughtful donation! Many companies match charitable gifts made by employees, retirees, and directors. We encourage you to enquire whether your company will do the same. SPECIAL GIFTS: Individuals donating $2,000 or more in a single year for the first time may choose to have an engraved brick added to our donor walkway. Gifts of $25,000 or more may be recognized by naming a specific hospital room, department, or service, as appropriate. PLANNED GIFTS: Any gift that you decide to give now, but that we do not actually receive until some time in the future, is a “planned gift.” The simplest to make, and by far the most common, is a bequest in your will. If you already have a will in effect, a simple codicil may be added to include the Hospital Foundation. Other types of planned or deferred gifts may give you special income and/or tax advantages. They can play a valuable role in strengthening your own long-term financial health, while enabling you to leave a lasting legacy that would perhaps not otherwise be affordable. We would be happy to work with you and your attorney or financial advisor on a gift from your IRA, a charitable gift annuity, trust, or gift of life insurance. For more information on any of these ways to give, please contact the Foundation. 10
