Endowments

Endowments provide Gateway with stability because the principal of the endowment will not be spent, and because a portion of annual earnings will be reinvested in the endowment.  This means that we will always have a source of funds that will increase over time as the endowment grows with the addition of new gifts.  It is a way to ensure that Gateway Healthcare will be able to provide services to future generations of children, adults and families.  It generally takes a commitment of 20 times your annual contribution to endow an annual gift.

Will or Trust Bequests

The most popular and simplest way to make a planned gift is under your will or trust. You can provide a specific dollar amount, a percentage, a residual amount, real estate, or tangible property to Gateway Healthcare. This provision can be made through a new will or trust or added as a codicil or amendment.

IRA Rollover and Pension Fund Gifts

Often the largest part of one’s estate, these are some of the best ways to make a charitable gift because of the ease of initiation, particularly under new legislation. Donating these assets to a charity, such as Gateway Healthcare, avoids double taxation under income and estate tax provisions. Gateway Healthcare can be named as a partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement or pension plan.

Gifts of Life Insurance

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable gift of insurance policies. With a relatively small outlay, you can make a substantial gift while obtaining tax benefits. Gateway Healthcare can be named as the sole, partial, or contingent beneficiary of a new or existing policy. Also, a paid up policy can be donated to Gateway Healthcare as the owner and sole beneficiary.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Certain charitable vehicles can provide you with a lifetime income, with the remainder being left to charity. These options ensure an income stream during your lifetime or the lifetime of your designated beneficiaries, leaving the residual benefit to charity. This is a simple and flexible way to maintain or increase your income and also benefit Gateway Healthcare.

Charitable Gift Annuity

There are many ways to fund a Gift Annuity, but cash or appreciated stock are the most common. When transferring securities to Gateway Healthcare, you can obtain an immediate charitable income tax deduction and bypass a portion of the capital gains tax as well. In addition, your income can frequently be increased in the form of a lifetime annuity payment based upon your age.

Gifts in Memory/Honor

A gift to Gateway Healthcare is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a loved one. When you make a memorial or honor donation, we send you an acknowledgement of your gift. We also send a note to the individual or the family of the person who is being remembered, so they know a gift was made.
