A Lasting Tribute
The $4 million capital campaign for the purchase of movable furniture and equipment provides another opportunity where individuals, businesses and organizations may be acknowledged for their contributions. Naming a room, or item of equipment as a Memorial has long been a tradition in our nation’s hospitals—the place to pay honor to a relative, to the cherished memory of a friend, or to the founders/owners of a corporation.
Recognition in Perpetuity
Recognition plaques will be permanently placed in the vestibule of the main entrance for individuals donating amounts of $1,000 or more. Names of all contributors of $10,000 or more will be inscribed on a prominently located Master Plaque in the main lobby.
All gifts, regardless of form, are tax deductible under existing federal and state laws, within specific limitations. Gifts of cash, securities, real estate, ie. insurance, commodities and other forms of real property are encouraged.
On October 3, 2008, the President signed the Charitable IRA legislation. This charitable option allows donors ages 70 or older to move $100,000 per year from their IRA directly to an eligible charity without having to pay income taxes on the money. To ensure maximum tax advantage, donors should consult with their legal/financial advisors on the type of gift and method of payment
