If you have a friend or family member whose life has been touched by Sun Health, you might consider making a gift in his or her name. When you memorialize important people in your life — such as your mother, father, spouse, mentors or other special loved ones — by donating to Sun Health Foundation you not only honor that special person, you also make a meaningful impact in the local community. On top of that, you might possibly receive personal financial benefits.
You Have Choices
There are three basic ways to establish an honorary gift:
A gift today — An outright gift can help fund immediate needs or an upcoming project. The financial benefits include an income tax charitable deduction (if you itemize) and the possible elimination of capital gains tax.
A gift through your estate plan — You can include a gift in your will or living trust stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or percentage of your estate will pass at your death in honor of your loved one.
A gift that lives on forever — Honorary endowments can be made now or through your estate plan. Endowments are structured so that a small portion of your gift, rather than the whole amount, is used each year to fund a particular purpose. To perpetuate the fund forever, the majority of the fund always remains intact and is invested for the future.
