Giving is easy, find a way that works for you.
Giving can take many forms, a check, one-time contribution, real estate, shares of stock, beneficiary of wills or retirement plan.
A giver can set up a Charitable Lead Trust or a Charitable Remainder Trust, which share the assets ad the income generated by them between heirs and the Foundation.
There are many ways to contribute during your life or even after. The easiest and most straightforward contributions are bequests and lifetime gifts. There are ways to set up bequests that benefit you and your heirs during your lifetime, and can later pass on the benefits to the Foundation.
Corporations and businesses may choose to support the Foundation through many avenues. It is best to consult your tax advisor as what is best. Contributions are tax-deductible and the Foundation is committed to honoring and recognizing publicly those who help provide better health-care services in our region.
Memorials and Honorary Contributions
For those who give to the Foundation in memory or in honor of a friends or loved one, the same recognition previously outlined will be provided. Named endowment funds will be established for individuals for whom memorial or honorary gifts totaling more than $25,000 have been made.
You can make donations to any of these existing funds, or make general purpose donations to Bartlett Foundation.
