Outright Gifts

Outright gifts have the most immediate impact on ARMC and qualify for the greatest tax benefit for the donor. 

Examples of Outright Gifts

  • Gifts by check made payable to Anderson Regional Medical Center
  • Securities, including stocks and bonds
  • Matching gifts (many corporations match gifts to not-for-profit organizations)
  • Real Estate and Personal Property gifts (subject to acceptance by ARMC)
  • Gifts through a donor advised fund or community foundation
  • Gifts of Retirement Assets (subject to limitations of age, amount and year)

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts usually involve assistance from a qualified professional in order to maximize benefits to the donor and non-profit.  While the non-profit usually receives its benefit after the donor's death, immediate benefits to the donor may include additional income, tax savings and satisfaction that charitable goals will be met. 

Examples of Planned Gifts

  • Bequests
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Life Insurance
  • Qualified Retirement Plans
  • Retained Life Estates
  • Revocable Living Trusts
