Leave a Legacy
At the Humboldt District Hospital Foundation, we are planning for the future, and invite your participation. Our ability to address the ongoing health care needs of our district can be achieved through your generosity. A planned gift is usually made from assets, and is a tax-effective way of giving.
Bequests in Your Will
The Humboldt District Hospital Foundation is pleased to accept bequests – each and every gift amount goes a long way. We know that you need to make philanthropic decisions that take into account your personal and family needs. A bequest to Humboldt District Hospital is a wonderful legacy, and one that will touch patients and our community for years to come.
We would be pleased to meet with you (and/or your legal/financial advisors) to discuss how an estate gift can help patient care at Humboldt District Hospital, and meet your philanthropic goals.
Gifts of Securities
Donating publicly traded securities is becoming an increasingly popular way to make a charitable donation. It is quick, easy, and has excellent tax benefits for the donor. Normally, when you sell a publicly traded security, you must pay tax on 50% of gains realized. However, when you donate a stock to a registered charity, the capital gains tax is eliminated. In addition, a charitable donation receipt will be issued. Securities can be easily transferred with the help of your financial institution.
Donating to an endowment is another way to leave a lasting legacy to Humboldt District Hospital. Money in an endowment fund is invested in perpetuity. The annual interest will purchase patient care equipment, improve facilities, fund research projects or provide educational opportunities for hospital staff.
