Supporting the Heart of a Healthy Community

The ARMC Foundation believes that having a regional healthcare resource that focuses on serving the community by providing the best in care to patients is worthy of support by individuals, corporations and foundations.

Having an independent non-profit organization that facilitates contributions and carefully stewards donated funds properly is critical to attracting the support required to meet the needs and mission of ARMC that goes beyond what the budget allows. As a recognized 501(c)(3) independent public charity, the ARMC Foundation will seek to help donors – individuals, corporations and foundations- make a difference in the lives that are positively impacted by the clinicians and the staff of ARMC.

Make a Gift to the ARMC Foundation to Support the Mission of ARMC

Gifts to the Foundation, both current and deferred, can be made from a number of different types of assets. Please feel free to call the ARMC Foundation at (909) 580-3167 to help you understand all of the opportunities and benefits of any kind of gift.

Individuals can assist the mission of the ARMC Foundation to support ARMC’s aim to be the Heart of a Healthy Community using a number of assets.

Current Outright Gifts

Donors can make a current gift to support the ARMC Foundation by using a number of assets.

  • Cash

    A cash gift is the simplest and most convenient way of making a charitable gift. Cash gifts, generally made by check or credit card, are fully deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.

  • Securities

    Gifts of appreciated securities – either stocks or bonds, can provide many tax advantages to the donor. Generally, the full fair market value of the donated securities is fully deductible as a charitable contribution. One of the additional benefits of the donation of stock is the donor does not pay federal capital gain taxes on the appreciated portion of the donated security.

  • Real Estate

    A gift of real estate can provide many of the same tax advantages as a gift of appreciated securities. Contributions of real estate can be complex and take some time, but this should not deter a donor from considering such a gift. Since each gift of real estate is unique, a Foundation staff member can assist you in navigating through the process.

  • Life Insurance

    A gift of life insurance, either through a current policy or the creation of a new policy, is another way to make a substantial contribution to the Foundation. Donors can receive federal income tax deductions for items such as the cash value of the policy and premiums paid each year.

Planned/Deferred Gifts

Donors can also make gifts to the ARMC Foundation that will be received at some point in the future to carry on ARMC’s important work. It can be best described as a present-day decision to make a future gift. The ARMC Foundation believes that any gift of this type should involve gathering advice from professional advisors including attorneys, CPA’s, financial advisors and others. Generally, planned gifts can be made in several ways.

  • Bequests

    Bequests are donations made through wills or trusts, and are transferred after the death of the donor. A bequest can be a specified dollar amount or a percentage of the donor’s estate. Contact the ARMC Foundation for sample language that can be used to make a bequest.

  • Will or Living Trust

    Many donors include a bequest to the Foundation in their wills or living trusts. The gift can be a specified dollar amount or a percentage of the donor’s estate. Donors can minimize federal income and estate taxes by utilizing this planning technique. Contact the ARMC Foundation for sample language that can be used to make a bequest.

  • Retirement Plans

    Using IRAs and other retirement plan assets provides the donor a number of significant financial and tax advantages. Unlike many assets, retirement plan assets are potentially subject to both income and estate taxes. Naming the Foundation as the beneficiary of a retirement plan can eliminate estate and income taxes, if the gift is structured properly. Examples of retirement fund vehicles that can be used to make a gift include IRAs or 401 (k) plans. The easiest way to make a gift from your retirement fund is to change the beneficiary designation to name the ARMC Foundation as one of the recipients.
