Ways to Give to Oakhurst Foundation
All gifts are administered in strict compliance with the instructions of the donor. When a gift is not accompanied by instructions, it is administered as an unrestricted gift; that is, it is used to fulfill the greatest need of MedCura Health as determined by the Board of Directors, the officers of the Foundation, and the CEO of MedCura Health. In regard to the establishment of special funds, such as naming funds, the Foundation recommends that the details for the administration be worked out by the donor and a representative of the Foundation, and written instructions for the administration of the funds be drafted and signed by the donor.
Nothing is easier than giving cash. Make a donation designated for the organization/s area of greatest current need. Contribute a large gift for a specific purpose, or facilities, or supporting a special activity. Ask us about the possibilities.
All major credit cards are accepted by the Oakhurst Foundation. You can donate by credit card at Donate here!
You or your spouse may work for a company that matches its employees’ gift. This program is a great way to double or even triple your gift to the foundation. Each year, The Oakhurst Foundation on behalf of MedCura Health benefits from corporate contributions initiated by company employees or retirees.
Remember a loved one, living or deceased, by donating a gift in their name. Donations for programs are welcomed.
Stocks, Bonds and Other Assets
Stocks or other investments that you have owned for at least one year and have increased in value become a substantial gift made at a low net cost to you. Appreciated assets can be ideal funding sources for charitable gifts that provide you (or someone you want to support) with a regular income for life.
A gift to The Oakhurst Foundation of a life insurance policy is accomplished either by delivering an assigned ownership of the policy to the Foundation or by naming the Foundation the irrevocable owner and beneficiary of the policy. This provides for a definite large future gift at a small annual expense, and premiums are tax-deductible. Another way is to change the beneficiary of an existing policy, if the present beneficiary no longer needs protection. The Foundation can be named as the new beneficiary or co-beneficiary.
In most cases, a gift of tangible personal property, such as painting, antiques, books, artifacts or jewelry result in a charitable deduction. You may also escape the potential capital tax on the property’s appreciation.
It is often an advantage to contribute appreciated property rather than cash. Securities, homes, land, and other assets make ideal gifts. By donating gifts of appreciated property, you eliminate capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction based on the full market value of your gift.
Name the Oakhurst Foundation as a beneficiary in your will and make a gift of cash, investments, or property from your estate.
A residual bequest provides that, after specific bequests are made to named individuals, the Oakhurst Foundation receives the “residue” or the amount remaining in the estate.
If you already have a valid up-to-date will, you can have your attorney prepare a codicil to your will naming the Oakhurst Foundation as a beneficiary without having to rewrite your entire will.
Your gift to The Oakhurst Foundation, Inc. makes a difference to our community and the patients we serve every day. When you donate to the foundation, you assist in funding services and programs that reduce health disparities.
More than ever, your generous donation matters to patients who might not otherwise be able to afford healthcare.
