Please show your support of CWHA’s work by contributing to its fund development campaign. A gift to CWHA is a gift to yourself and your community. Every gift makes a difference and is appreciated. CWHA is a non-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.Gifts can be pledged over a multi-year period. In addition to cash and pledged donations, gift of securities, property, life insurance and confirmed bequest can be made. You can reach us via email. For more information about making a gift visit us at guidestar.org
These gifts help to ensure important programs and services are not threatened because of a lack of funding. Donors who contribute $1,000 or more within a calendar year are recognized as members of the Laureates of Health Care Society.
These gifts can be made to a wide range of specialty services or programs designated as areas for support by CWHA consistent with the donor’s personal interests.
A gift of cash is the simplest and most immediate way to give to CWHA. Cash gifts may be pledged over a period of up to five years and are fully deductible up to 50 percent of the donor’s gross adjusted income. Checks should be made payable to CWHA.
A gift of long-term appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains taxes, currently at the maximum rate of 28 percent. In most cases a donor can claim a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the appreciated securities. The gift is deductible up to 30 percent of the donor’s gross adjusted income.
In some cases property can be given outright to support CWHA and the donor receives a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the property. Real estate gifts also can be used to fund a life income arrangement.
Life income arrangements vary, but most offer the following benefits: income for life to the donor and/or a second beneficiary, a charitable income tax deduction, higher rate of return than many current investments, reduction or avoidance of capital gains taxes.
For many donors, a gift made through their Will is the best way to make a substantial donation to CWHA. Donors can leave specific dollar amounts or a percentage of their estate. Through a bequest, a donor can make a gift without depleting current assets and eliminate or reduce federal and state taxes. If you have included CWHA in your Will, please let us know.
