Giving Options

There are many options for supporting Schuyler Hospital.

Outright cash donation: Online, by phone, or by mail, you can make an outright donation of funds.

Pledges can also be arranged online or by contacting Tiffany Bloss or (607) 210-1950, Option 3.

Matching Gifts can sometimes be arranged through your employer. The Human Resources Department where you work will let you know if a Matching Gift is an option for you.

Appreciated securities and stocks not only provide excellent support for the hospital, but making such a gift to Schuyler Hospital benefits you as well, by reducing your capital gains tax or providing a charitable deduction on your income tax.

Planned Giving

If you know you’d like to help but are not sure which option is perfect for you, please call Tiffany Bloss at (607) 210-1950, Option 3.  She will be happy to talk with you. You will also want to discuss your choice with your lawyer or tax accountant to make sure your arrangements are in good order.

Deductibility varies in percentage among different kinds of gifts. Some of the options for Planned Giving follow:

Charitable remainder annuity trust: Under this plan, the donor places in trust a certain quantity of assets, and payments are made to the donor or beneficiary at an agreed-on rate and schedule throughout the donor and beneficiary’s lifetime(s). At the end of the beneficiary period, the assets are transferred to the Schuyler Health Foundation. This plan allows the donor to take a tax deduction in the year that the trust is established.

Charitable remainder unitrust: This arrangement follows the basic blueprint of a charitable remainder annuity trust; however, rather than pay a fixed amount of income to the donor, the grantee pays an agreed-upon percentage of the assets’ yield to the donor. Additionally, the donor may, if she or he chooses, increase the funding base with additional assets over time.

Revocable living trust: Under a revocable living trust, the grantor transfers the legal ownership of the assets concerned to the trust. This arrangement differs from that of an irrevocable trust in that the grantor may amend the terms of or discontinue the trust at any time.

Celebrating Others Through Your Gift

The Schuyler Health Foundation is always glad to be a part of paying tribute to a special person or people or a celebrated event. If you make a gift in honor of a person, the Schuyler Health Foundation will be pleased to send a notice to the honoree. Of course, the specific amount of the gift will be held in confidence.

Another way to pay tribute is by including in an obituary the suggestion that honorific donations made to Schuyler Hospital or to Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility through the Schuyler Health Foundation.

The name of the honoree will be displayed in our annual report if so desired. Naming opportunities exist for substantial gifts of support.

To discuss the potential for naming opportunities, please contact the Foundation Director, Tiffany Bloss at (607) 210-1950, option 3 or blosst@schuylerhospital.org.
