There are many ways to support the Providence General Foundation. Gifts may be unrestricted and used in the area of greatest need, or you can choose to contribute your gift toward a particular program or purpose. Some donors use annual giving to support the ongoing needs of Providence, while others use gift planning to leave a legacy to the organization or to make major gifts to the Medical Center during their lifetime. Some donors even choose to share the gift of time or talent by volunteering for an event or on a committee. The opportunities to help are endless. Here are just a few ways that you can help support the healing mission of Providence General Foundation and Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.
A cash gift is the most common donation made to the Foundation. We accept personal checks, credit cards, and cash. Gifts can be made online using a credit card. We can also set up a recurring gift for those who choose to give on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.
Honor Gifts are often used to pay tribute to a family member, colleague, or friend. Contributions are made in the name of an individual, and the honored individual is notified that a gift was given in his or her name. Honor gifts can also be made to celebrate a special occasion or event.
Memorial Gifts can be made to remember a loved one or friend who has passed away, and is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy in memory of a special person. Memorial gifts can be directed toward any area of interest of the donor.
Supporting the Foundation through sponsorships and events is a great way to contribute to a valuable cause while enjoying a festive social event. A large portion of ticket sales from each event goes directly to towards advancing programs at Providence. Sponsorships are a great way to support the Foundation while also promoting a business or program.
Gifts of appreciated securities or real estate are great alternatives to cash gifts. These gifts generate a double tax benefit. Donors receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the property while avoiding capital gains taxes. Click here to learn more about gifts of stock and securities.
Planned gifts are typically given in conjunction with estate planning, and is a viable option for donors of all income levels. From a donor's perspective, planned giving is attractive for many reasons. It may allow you to make larger gifts than you otherwise could out of your current assets. Depending on how a planned gift is set up, it may also let you receive a stream of income for life, earn higher investment yield, or reduce your capital gains or estate taxes. Planned gifts often appeal to people who want to contribute to a charitable organization but are uncertain of their income needs during their lifetimes. Learn more about planned gifts.
