Estate and planned giving
There are many ways to make a gift to Emanate Health Foundation. Your gift may be designated for a specific program or purpose, or you may make an unrestricted gift. We encourage donors to make pledges, payable over a period of years. Your charitable contribution may also help you to realize substantial tax savings.
However you choose to make your gift, your support will help Emanate Health to continue fulfilling its mission of providing top-quality, compassionate health care. Your charitable gift is a meaningful investment in the long-term health of the communities we serve.
Foundation staff members are ready to assist you in determining the best match between your philanthropic goals and the Foundation's needs. In addition, we urge you to consult your own legal and financial advisors as you consider your gift.
Gifts of real estate
You may make a gift of developed or undeveloped property, including a personal or vacation residence, farm or rental property. These gifts can result in substantial tax savings for you, as well as significant support for Emanate Health's mission. In addition to an outright gift or real property, you may also make a gift of a remainder interest in a home or farm, through which you or others whom you designate continue to occupy the property for life.
Gifts of personal property
You may wish to make a gift of personal property, such as artwork, or equipment. These gifts may either be sold, with the proceeds benefiting Emanate Health, or be used in fulfillment of our mission.
Gifts of life insurance
One way to make a significant future gift is by giving an existing life insurance policy to Emanate Health Foundation, or purchasing a new policy and naming us as the beneficiary.
Gifts of security
You may make a gift of publicly traded or closely held securities. Gifts of securities can result in significant tax savings for you, as well as providing meaningful support to Emanate Health's programs and services.
Remembering Emanate Health in an estate plan, or through another planned gift, represents a significant and lasting contribution to our mission and the communities served by the Emanate Heath health care system. Many planned gifts also offer immediate and long-term tax reduction advantages, as well as income payable to you or your family members. At Emanate Health, supporters enjoy the full range of gift planning options, including charitable gift annuities and trusts. Experienced staff are happy to explore planned giving options with you that best suit your personal objectives.
An Endowment is a source of funds that act as a financial anchor for a nonprofit organization and are held in perpetuity. Normally, a donor creates an endowment fund by asking that the funds remain intact with only the income being spent to support a specific project. The trustees of a nonprofit determine a spending policy annually that provides for a percentage of the income to be spent, with the principal remaining intact.
Now, that's a legacy worth leaving.
