Ways To Contribute
There are a number of ways to support Lake Health in its mission to enhance the health status of the community. Deciding how to give is a personal decision. In some cases a tax advisor or attorney should be consulted. For a listing of advisors that may be able to help you with your philanthropic needs, click here. Following are examples of ways to contribute.
Gifts of cash - This is the most typical way to contribute and includes donations that are charged to Visa, MasterCard or Discover. The Foundation can process cash as a one-time gift or as payment on a pledge.
Gifts of stock - Gifts of stock usually afford the donor a tax benefit and can also result in a larger gift. Notify the Foundation office of your intent to contribute stock. Stock gifts can be recorded as a donor’s annual gift or as payment of a pledge. Download the Gift of Stock form here.
Name us in your will - Consult your attorney and prepare your will. It is one of your most important documents. Providing for Lake Health in your will is a lasting tribute.
Use Life Insurance as the gift vehicle - You can name Lake Health as a beneficiary of your paid-up policy, or you can buy a new policy and name Lake Health as the owner and beneficiary. Once established, ownership to Lake Health would need to be finalized on a new policy.
Gifts of real estate - Contact the Foundation office if you would like to make a gift of real estate or another tangible asset. (Acceptance is by Board approval.)
Gifts given in tribute - You can pay tribute to a loved one; celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or graduation; or honor your physician with your donation. Send your check, along with the name and address of the person you would like the Foundation to notify. A letter will be sent that tells the honoree (or a survivor of the honoree if the gift is a memorial), of your thoughtful gesture. The amount of the donation is not mentioned.
Other planned gifts - These include trusts, unitrusts, charitable remainder trusts, etc. These are vehicles that should be discussed with your estate planner, attorney, or financial advisor. The Foundation is available, at no cost, to provide information to a donor’s experts in execution of the vehicle.
Give as you shop - When shopping online, there are easy ways to donate to the Lake Health Foundation. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Lake Health Foundation (at no cost to you) whenever you shop on AmazonSmile and designate us as your charity of choice. You can also donate cash back when shopping at over 3,000 online stores using the simple, secure Giving Assistant program.
