Give to the Foundation

Ways of Giving

Charitable giving helps us to ensure quality of life in Huntingdon County

Gifts of Cash:  Cash gifts are as easy as writing a check.  You may drop off or mail your gift to the Foundation at 1225 Warm Springs AVE, Huntingdon, PA 16652-2350.

Honor or Memorial Gifts: Sometimes, when you want to show someone how much you care, it can be difficult to find the right gift to express your feelings. Consider giving a commemorative gift. This gift doesn't come in a box and it isn't tied with a ribbon. Click here to learn how to make an honor or memorial gift.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities:  Giving appreciated stock is an excellent way to support the hospital's programs. This type of gift usually qualifies not only for an income tax deduction associated with all charitable gifts, but also eliminates capital gains tax.  For stock gift instructions please contact Linda Carpenter at 643-8888 or lcarpenter@jcblair.org.

Bequests:  Naming the J. C. Blair Memorial Hospital Foundation in your will may enable you to make a significant contribution that might not be possible during your lifetime. Click here for sample bequest language.

Life Insurance Gifts:  An often-overlooked asset that can be used to fund a gift is life insurance. You can name the foundation beneficiary of a policy that is no longer needed for its original purpose or you can buy a new policy for the foundation's benefit.

Charitable Gift Annuity:  In addition to a tax deduction, this type of gift also guarantees you a fixed income for life, partially tax-free. The dollar amount that you will receive is determined by your age and the age of any other beneficiary you name at the time of the gift.

Charitable Remainder Trust:  A "CRT" can provide you (and your spouse, if appropriate) lifetime income and cash flow, a current income tax deduction, and provide important endowment funds for the future healthcare of the community. At the same time, you avoid all capital gains and future estate taxes.
