Civista Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization that accepts charitable
gifts to support Civista Medical Center in its mission to provide the
community with a full range of health care services. The Foundation
raises funds through individual and corporate donations, memorial and
planned gifts, special events and an annual campaign.
GIFTS OF CASH:
Gifts of cash and check are the most
popular methods of giving. Such gifts are convenient and tax deductible.
Gifts also can be made with assets such as stocks, bonds and mutual
funds that have increased in value. Donors can receive regular tax savings
and can avoid capital gains tax on assets given for charitable use.
A gift in your will or living trust can establish a living legacy. A
gift of excess retirement funds, such as pension plans or IRA's also
may allow you to give more, while eliminating taxes that would otherwise
diminish these assets. Gifts of life insurance that has fulfilled its
original purpose also can offer excellent tax benefits. Policies originally
purchased to protect a loved one who no longer needs that protection
can be an excellent way to make a gift in honor of that person. Gifts
that provide an income can be a tax effective way to provide you and/or
a designee with regular payments for life.
Civista Health Foundation gratefully acknowledges donors at all levels
for their charitable gifts. For more information, please call the Civista
Health Foundation, (301) 609-4132.
