Make a Gift
Gifts of Cash, Checks, and Credit Cards are the most common forms of donations to the TGH Foundation.
For those who are looking to give in other ways than cash or check. We also accept some gifts in-kind in the form of needed materials, goods and services.
Planned gifts can be made with cash, but many planned gifts are made by donating assets such as stocks, real estate, art pieces or business interests – the possibilities are endless. Planned gifts can provide valuable tax benefits and/or lifetime income for you, your spouse, or other loved ones. The most frequently made planned gifts are bequests to charities, made through your will. Other popular planned gifts include charitable trusts and charitable gift annuities. Below are various planned giving options.
Donors are also able to give appreciated securities. This allows both favorable tax benefits and charitable benefit by giving long-term appreciated property.
Gifts of stock are another way to increase savings on taxes while meeting your goals for charitable giving.
If looking to give over a number of years, we encourage our donors to make pledges to the TGH Foundation.
Employers are also looking to give back and most have established matching gift programs. This allows for an employee’s gift to be matched in greater, lesser or equal amounts by their respective employer.
When looking to make charitable gifts in one’s estate plans, considering a gift of bequest through their will might be a good option.
Retirement-plan benefits are one of the best ways to give back and avoid both estate and income taxes.
A Charitable IRA Distribution allows individuals age 70 ½ and older to make direct transfers to TGH from retirement accounts without having to count the transfers as income for federal tax purposes.
A gift of life insurance can be gifted to the Foundation on a no longer needed policy or a newly purchased life insurance policy. There are a few options to list the Foundation as a beneficiary.
