For nearly six decades, a vision of uncompromising medical excellence for San Diego has inspired countless donors to support Sharp HealthCare. Their generosity has made possible programs and services that have improved the health of thousands of San Diegans. On behalf of those patients and their loved ones, we thank our donors for their commitment to our community.
As 2013 draws to a close, there are a number of giving options available that allow you and your family to support the aspects of health care that touch you most deeply. These options include:
Gift annuities — Transferring low-performing CDs, stocks or cash to the Foundations of Sharp HealthCare can provide you a fixed income for life at a rate based on your age.
Transfers from your IRA — If you own an IRA and are over age 70 and a half, you may transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to the Foundations of Sharp HealthCare to satisfy required minimum distributions. The distribution will be excluded from your gross income for federal tax purposes.
Legacy plans — The experienced and professional staff of the Foundations of Sharp HealthCare can work with you to find the planned giving option that best suits your personal goals. In recognition of your gift, we will welcome you to our Legacy Circle.
Stocks — Donating appreciated stock to the Foundations of Sharp HealthCare before selling them can help you avoid paying capital gains tax. You will also receive a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock at the time the gift is made if they have been held for more than 12 months. Foundation staff can work with you and your financial advisor to ensure a smooth and timely transaction.
Tax-deductible gifts — Gifts in support of Sharp HealthCare will not only make a difference for patients, they can also honor someone in your life or celebrate a birth. You can even thank a Sharp caregiver who made a difference in your visit or hospital stay through a Guardian Angel gift. Make an online donation now.
