Ways to Give
Those making charitable gifts have varying needs and interests. There are many options available when making a gift to the Finley Health Foundation.
Your cash gift, either restricted to a specific purpose or unrestricted for general expenditures, will provide Finley with funding necessary to meet Foundation goals for the year while providing significant tax benefits to you and your family.
UnityPoint Health – Finley Health Foundation can accept a limited number of donated items. Due to infection prevention policies and in order to protect the safety, health and privacy of our patients, guidelines have been established for what items are acceptable. Learn more here.
Gifts of appreciated securities or stock can be very advantageous to the donor. If your stock is one you have owned for more than one year, you may deduct the full fair market value of the stock as a contribution while bypassing all capital gains taxes.
Like gifts of appreciated securities or stock, when gifting real estate to Finley Health Foundation you may deduct the full fair market value of the property as a contribution while bypassing all capital gains taxes.
Life insurance policies naming Finley Health Foundation as the owner and beneficiary allows the donor to deduct the replacement value or cost basis of the policy (whichever is less) as long as the policy is paid in full.
Funded with an asset such as securities or appreciated property, the unitrust offers a substantial tax savings while providing an annual income to you or your family.
Depending on his or her age, the donor of a gift annuity receives lifetime income between 5.5% and 12% while receiving a tax deduction tax-free return of principal and deferred capital gains tax (if funded with appreciated assets).
Gifts received in memory of or in honor of an individual will be administered as the contributor specifies. The Foundation will notify the honoree or next of kin of the gift received.
