WAYS TO HELP
Tribute Giving is a wonderful way to honour a staff person or department within our healthcare facilities who has provided exceptional care to you, a friend or a family member. A copy of your thank-you message will be provided to the appropriate healthcare staff and the recipient(s) will also be informed that a Tribute Gift has been received in their honour.
THANK A CAREGIVER WITH A DONATION
Celebration Giving provides a unique way to celebrate a special occasion in your life while supporting healthcare needs in your community. Individuals who are getting married, or celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary may choose this meaningful method of making their special occasion an event to remember.
With our In Memoriam Giving Program you can make a donation to the South & Central Health Foundation in memory of a deceased loved one who has touched your life in a special way. Forms are available in funeral homes throughout the region or simply print the attached In Memoriam Donor Card and mail it to the address below, or donate through our secure "Make a Donation" button on this website.
An acknowledgement card will be forwarded to the bereaved in honor of your donation.(Please note that donation amounts are kept private).
LEAVE A LEGACY
Donors can help us nurture the future of healthcare in the central region of our province by planning to leave a gift to the South and Central Health Foundation in your will. Your generosity will help us ensure that when your family, friends & neighbors need medical attention in the future, the dedicated healthcare staff throughout this region will be there, ready & able to respond with state-of-the-art technology.
If you are working with a financial planner, lawyer, accountant or insurance agent, please consider leaving a gift, of any size, for regional healthcare needs once your family and other priorities have been taken care of. A professional can also tell you about the many tax benefits of planned gifts.
GIVE IN MEMORY
GIFTS OF PROPERTY
The South and Central Health Foundation has gratefully accepted a wide range of non-cash gifts, commonly referred to as in kind gifts, throughout our history. Some examples of such gifts would include:
New or gently used, medical-grade healthcare equipment and comfort items (ie. wheelchairs, geriatric chairs...)
A qualified, professional appraisal is required if the value of the asset exceeds $1,000. A donor of a gift in kind may receive a tax receipt for the appraised, fair market value determined the day the donation is made.
Our Foundation relies on the work of volunteers to help us in nearly every aspect of our program. Volunteers gain valuable work experience and at the same time take pride in the fact that they are helping to improve health programs and services in Central Newfoundland.
There are many ways you can volunteer your time. Whether it be helping us at organizing a special event like our Corporate Challenge Golf Tournament or our Annual Mothers Day Radiothon, or lending a helping hand in performing administrative duties during regular office hours, volunteers are the backbone of our organization.
If you would like to volunteer in our office or at one of our special events, please contact us at (709) 292-2393. Please note that a certificate of conduct will be required for our office volunteers.
For more information on how you can make a donation, or volunteer with our charity, please feel free to contact us.
MAKE A ONE-TIME GIFT
As one of the easiest ways to support our Foundation, general donations are used on a daily basis to support priority purchases of medical equipment, programs and services.
BECOME A MONTHLY DONOR
Monthly Giving is a convenient way for you to give towards the health of others. Your donation doesn't have to big, whether it's $10, $15, $25, or even $50, it all adds up! Monthly donations provide our charity with a dependable source of funds to assist in making the long term plans that are required to prepare for changing health care needs. You can establish your monthly gift in several ways:
clicking on the secure "DONATE NOW" button on our website and setting up a monthly gift, in any amount,
contacting our office at (709) 292-2393 and providing your credit card information and monthly gift amount. We will then bill this donation to your credit card each month,
sending post dated cheques to our office, or
completing and mailing the attached form to have your personal bank account debited each month on a specific date, for the amount of your gift.
Please note that as a donor, you have the right to increase, decrease or end your monthly gift at any time simply by contacting our office.
You may consider supporting the South and Central Health Foundation with a gift of stock or securities. Eligible securities include: shares, debt obligations or rights listed on a prescribed stock exchange, a share of the capital stock of a mutual fund corporation, employee stock options or a unit of a mutual fund trust.
The value of the tax receipt that you will receive upon providing a gift of securities or stock will be based upon the market closing price on the day the South and Central Health Foundation takes legal receipt of the same into our brokerage account.
In 2006 the capital gains taxes on publicly traded securities donated to registered charities was eliminated. This new tax benefit often makes securities more attractive than cash as a donation. If you donate publicly traded securities, mutual funds, stock acquired through exercising employee stock options, or other eligible securities, an increase in their value since purchase is not taxable.
We strongly encourage you to consult your financial and legal advisors to ensure that a securities donation fits your personal circumstances and maximizes your tax advantage.
