When you contribute to Mary Rutan Foundation you are making an investment in the health, wellness and healing of our community, your family, friends and neighbors. Whatever the size of your gift, your contribution ensures that Mary Rutan Hospital can continue to provide progressive, quality health care with a personal touch. There are many ways that you can contribute to the future of healthcare in our community.
Each year, individuals make cash gifts to Mary Rutan Foundation. All amounts are welcome, and each gift may be made without restriction or be designated for a hospital service or program.
Many employers will match cash gifts that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. Such programs can double or even triple the value of your gift. Check with your employer to see if a matching gift program exists.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
There's no better tribute to someone who's made a difference in your life than to make a difference in the lives of others in their name. A memorial gift is a gift made at the death of an individual in their name and honor. You may also make a gift in honor of a physician, nurse or health care provider that touched your life. Mary Rutan Foundation acknowledges all gift received in this manner by sending a letter to the next of kin and accompanying listing of all who donated in memory of their loved one. This list includes the donor's name and address, but does not include the amount of the gift.
Gift of Stocks, Bonds, Real Estate or Other Property
These types of gifts are always welcomed by the foundation and may provide the donor substantial tax advantages. Talk with your financial advisor or attorney about the best way to make such a gift.
Wills and Bequests
For many people, this option provides great flexibility, security and peace of mind. A bequest for the Mary Rutan Foundation in your will is a process easily accomplished in your estate planning. You may choose to inform Mary Rutan Foundation of your estate planning or keep your plans confidential.
Trusts and Other Planned Gifts
Some people combine their charitable interests with estate planning to create a trust that provides a lifetime income to them and their spouse, provides for their heirs, creates estate tax savings, and results in a substantial gift for Mary Rutan Foundation. Talk with your financial advisor or attorney about options in planning that will meet your needs.
All contributors are listed in the donor section of the hospital's annual report upon approval of the contributor.
