Making your gift couldn’t be easier

Appreciated Securities

A gift of appreciated securities allows you to make a more substantial contribution while enjoying significant tax advantages. The donor may avoid capital gains tax and be eligible for an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stocks (if held for over one year).

Real Estate/Tangible Property

Gifts of real estate and tangible property can offer similar tax advantages as appreciated securities, though certain restrictions may apply.

Planned Gifts

You can help secure Hillsboro Medical Center’s ability to serve the community for years to come by including the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation in your estate plan. In addition to benefiting Hillsboro Medical Center and its work, these types of gifts often provide significant financial benefits for the donor.

There are three common types of planned gifts:


Including the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation in your will is one of the simplest forms of planned giving. You may choose to bequeath cash, a particular asset, or a percentage of your estate. If you have included Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation in your will, please let us know so we can recognize you in our Heritage Society.

Gift Annuities

Gift annuities offer tax benefits while providing a steady income stream to you. Based on the value of your gift, your age, current rates of return, etc., you will receive fixed payments on a regular basis for the rest of your life. A portion of that payment is tax-free, and in most cases, you can enjoy additional tax benefits right away.

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)

A CRT is a great way to make a significant gift to the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation, reduce or avoid capital gains and estate taxes, and enjoy a steady income stream. With a CRT, your assets go into a trust now, and the trust pays a corresponding dollar amount to you or the beneficiary of your choice over an established period of time. At the end of that period, the remaining asset is transferred to the Foundation.

These are just a few of the ways you can include the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation in your estate planning.

Memorial Gifts

Any gift to the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation may be made as a memorial or tribute in the name of a loved one. Whether you are celebrating a birth, mourning a loss or honoring people who have touched your life in other ways, commemorative giving is a special way to show your appreciation. An acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to the person or family you are honoring, notifying them of your contribution without specifying the amount.

Most gifts to the Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation are tax-deductible, depending on your personal circumstances. The Hillsboro Medical Center Foundation is a non-profit organization with exempt status under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation’s Federal Identification Number is 93-0751507.

Caregiver Recognition

A donation to the Foundation is a wonderful way to recognize and express appreciation of your healthcare provider.  Your caregiver will be notified of your gratitude with a special note thanking them for their excellent service, and informed that a gift has been made in honor of their work.
