The Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Foundation welcomes your support no matter what the size of your gift. There are basically two ways to give, either an outright gift or a deferred or planned gift. An outright gift is one that is transferred immediately to the Foundation. It may include cash, stock, real estate or tangible personal property. Gifts of long-term appreciated assets are tax deductible at their fair market value, and they avoid any capital gains tax on their appreciated value. Some businesses also offer matching gift programs, which in some cases may double or triple the value of an employee’s gift.Deferred or planned giving may take many forms, depending on the personal, financial, or estate plans of the donor. Planned gifts may provide significant financial advantages, and they often allow a donor to make a far more substantial gift than they could make outright.The most common planned gift is a simple bequest in a donor’s will. Other planned gifts may include life insurance or retirement assets. Some planned gifts, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, may return income to a donor or other beneficiary during their lifetime.Whether outright or planned, your gift may offer important financial advantages to you or to your heirs or beneficiaries. So, it is important that you talk with your financial or legal advisor before making any major gift commitment.Please call us at (315) 393-9175. We’d be glad to discuss ways to tailor a gift that will best meet your interests and circumstances.
