Donor Advised Funds

The Memorial Health Foundation donor advised fund is a convenient way to simplify charitable giving and take advantage of U.S. tax savings. A donor advised fund account is similar to a charitable checking account. You make contributions and recommend grants to the Foundation and other preferred charities at your convenience. An account may be established by individuals or Rotary-affiliated groups.

Personal Property

Memorial Health Foundation accepts gifts of tangible property, such as jewelry or artwork, with the approval of the Gift Acceptance Committee. At this time, gifts of automobiles, boats, airplanes, and motorcycles are not accepted by the Foundation.

See Memorial Health Foundation's Gift Acceptance Policy for a complete list of criteria along with the required documents and information, or contact us to learn more.

Real Estate

Memorial Health Foundation accepts gifts of real estate with a minimum appraised value of $25,000 (undeveloped property) and $100,000. When a donor makes an outright gift of real estate that is approved by the Gift Acceptance Committee, the Foundation takes immediate possession of, and title to the property. The donor is entitled to a U.S. charitable tax deduction based upon the fair market value of the property when donated, as determined by a qualified appraisal, and may receive tax benefits in other countries, as determined on a case-by-case basis. The net proceeds from the sale of the real estate support the Foundation.

For more detail about the process, please contact us to learn more. See Memorial Health Foundation's Gift Acceptance Policy for a complete list of criteria along with the required documents and information.

Employee Matching Gift

Double the impact of your gift by asking your employer to match your contribution to Memorial Health Foundation. More than 15,000 companies match gifts to the Foundation, including many international corporations.
