Payments can be made by credit card. No more mailings. No more postage.

Planned Gifts

Most people would like to be remembered for contributing to their community. It is possible to arrange your financial affairs so that you can take care of the needs of your family as well as make a lasting contribution to the Western Regional Hospital Foundation. Planned Giving is a creative approach to charitable giving that benefits you, as well as the Foundation. The following are some of the Planned Giving options available:

  • Bequests
    Your Will provides you with the opportunity to leave a lump sum or percentage of your estate to the Western Regional Hospital Foundation. Naming the Foundation ensures the values and interests that are most dear to you continue to flourish after you are gone. A receipt will be issued to offset estate taxes and taxes arising from capital gains.
  • Annuity
    An annuity is a unique way to contribute that allows you to receive income for the rest of your life. You may also be eligible for a sizeable tax credit. You may consider transferring stocks or bonds to be used for a designated purpose. You or a family member will still receive the annual interest as well as an immediate receipt based on the value of your gift.
  • Life Insurance
    You can take out a life insurance policy with the Western Regional Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary. You pay a small annual premium, but your eventual gift is significant. Tax receipts are issued for all premiums paid. You can also donate an existing policy that is no longer needed and receive an immediate tax receipt for the current cash value of the policy.
  • Gifts-in-Kind
    Gifts-in-kind involve the donation of property, goods or services instead of cash. The Western Regional Hospital Foundation issues tax receipts for the fair market value of most gifts of goods, but not for services.
  • Endowment Fund
    An endowment fund is an irrevocable donation that provides income in perpetuity and can be restricted to fund a specific purpose. Endowment funds are a permanently restricted net asset, the principal of which is protected and the income from which may be reinvested or spent depending on the donor's wishes.
