Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Gifts made in honor of family and friends at times such as a birthday, anniversary or other notable occasion can be gifts of love and show how much you care.
Memorial gifts allow you to thoughtfully remember those who have been such a vital part of your life.
Gifts made in either of these ways will serve to honor special loved ones, while assuring that worthwhile values continue to influence the world around us.
The Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation will promptly send an appropriate acknowledgement to the person honored or to the family of the person for which the memorial was donated.
Benefiting Others Through Your Will
In addition to being one of the simplest ways to distribute your estate, your Will can also be a creative vehicle through which to make thoughtful gifts. After providing for the needs of loved ones, you may choose one of several ways to benefit charitable organizations and institutions you have enjoyed supporting.
By having your attorney revise your Will or add a simple Amendment, you can make a gift of a dollar amount, a specific property, a percentage of your estate, or what is left after your loved ones have been taken care of. You may also wish to name one or more charitable recipients in case one or more heirs do not survive you.
A Large Gift at Low Cost Through Life Insurance
Life insurance needs change as life progresses. Children become self-sufficient, and investments may provide unexpected income and security. As a result, not all life insurance coverage may be needed for the reason it was initially purchased. Also, because federal law now exempts many estates from taxation, life insurance purchased to cover estate taxes may be "obsolete". One of the simplest ways to make a significant gift in the future is to name a charitable beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a policy no longer needed for its original purpose.
Another way to make a gift of insurance is to purchase a new policy, naming a favorite cause as beneficiary or co-beneficiary. You can ensure a gift that may ultimately be much larger than its cost.
Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA)
Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) program was adopted in 1997 for those individuals who wish to make a significant gift but retain lifetime income from the annuity. The Foundation's first CGA was given by Judy and Denny Fisk.
To establish a Charitable Gift Annuity, the donor transfers assets, i.e. stocks, bonds, cash, to the Foundation. In return, a guaranteed payment is made to the donor and/or spouse for their lifetime.
For those individuals with charitable intent, it is an excellent way to make a gift to the Hospital Foundation and still enjoy the income.
