Stock or Mutual Funds

Gifts of stock or mutual funds are among the most mutually-beneficial and easiest ways to give to your local hospital. Gifts of stock or mutual funds are eligible for a tax deduction for the full market value on the date of the gift. Also, the donor avoids paying capital gains on the stock or real estate's increased value. Please consult your attorney or financial adviser about gifts of stock or mutual funds. To complete a stock transfer, please complete this form.

Memorials and Honorariums

A gift in memory or honor of someone is deeply meaningful. When a gift is made in memory or honor of a loved one or a friend, the immediate family is notified that a gift has been made to honor their loved one. “In Honor of" gifts are a meaningful way to observe someone's birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. The Foundation sends a thank you letter to the donor acknowledging their donation. If you would like more information on ways to honor a loved one's memory, please call 231-935-6482.

When you make a legacy gift to your local hospital through your will, estate, or financial plans, the impact of your generosity lives on.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides a convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.

With a donor advised fund, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. Most donor advised funds accept donations of long-term appreciated securities and other assets.
