Ways to Give

There are many ways you can support the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation:

  1. Outright Gifts: Include cash, stock, real estate or personal property and are tax deductible up to 50 percent of your gross adjusted income. Outright gifts provide immediate support to Atlantic General Hospital.
  2. Matching Gifts: Allow you to double your gift – at no expense to you. Many employers match charitable gifts of employees and retirees.
  3. Charitable Gift Annuities: Allow you to give during your lifetime, but can provide lifetime income for you or a loved one.
  4. Bequests through thoughtfully planned wills or trusts: Create a lasting legacy in your name.
  5. Major Gifts: gifts can be pledged today and paid later via an installment arrangement if you prefer.
  6. Gifts of all sizes: Are encouraged and can be a one-time donation, monthly contribution, or a long-term pledge. Donors may designate their gift to a specific department, program or piece of equipment. A general donation is always welcome, as are gifts to memorialize loved ones.

You can arrange your donations so that both you and the Foundation receive maximum benefit. Contributions to the Foundation may provide the individual or business donor with significant tax savings. Please consult your tax advisor for further information.​
