How can you give?
Honor or recognize an individual
Memorial Gift: Establishing a memorial, which will live on in the name of the individual, is an appropriate means of expressing sympathy to family members and to associates of bereaved persons.
Honor Gift: An honor gift is appreciated on such occasions as the recovery of a friend or loved one from a serious illness or accident, a birthday or anniversary, or for an achievement by an associate or relative. In lieu of a gift, honor that person by establishing a living memorial in his or her name with the Johnston Health Foundation.
Grateful Patient Program: This program provides patients and families with a way to give back and recognize a physician, nurse or other staff member that played a special role in their care. A gift can be made in a department or individual’s honor.
A personal letter will be sent to the family or honoree to inform them of your expression of generosity and thoughtfulness. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.
A fund that is made up of gifts and bequests that are subject to a requirement that the principal be maintained intact and invested to create a source of income for an organization. Donors may set up an endowment to fund a specific interest; and a nonprofit’s governing body may set up an endowment. In any case, an endowment requires that the principal remain intact in perpetuity, or for a defined period of time, or until sufficient assets have been accumulated to achieve a designated purpose.
Planned giving (less commonly known as gift planning) is an area of fundraising that refers to several specific gift types that can be funded with cash, equity, or property.
Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.
Gifts of Stocks, Securities or IRA Distributions
Gifts of stock and other securities are a popular way to give to charity. Gifts of securities include not only publicly traded stocks, but gifts of mutual funds, Treasury bills and notes, corporate and municipal bonds, and stock in non-publicly held companies.
Corporate giving, also known as corporate philanthropy, refers to the act of for-profit companies donating some of their profits or resources to charity. Donations may come from the company directly, or through a separate, company-sponsored foundation or public charity.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Employee matching gifts (also known as matching funds) are grants an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Usually associated with corporate grantmakers, employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation.
A foundation grant is free monetary assistance provided to individuals and small businesses by companies, citizens, government, and nongovernment organizations. The money awarded as a grant is meant to meet particular needs and is not required to be repaid.
