Our sole purpose is to give the community an opportunity to participate in raising funds to provide financial support for the best possible healthcare in a positive, healing, compassionate environment at the Taber Health Centre. All donated funds stay in Taber for the benefit of the residents of Taber, Barnwell, Grassy Lake, Enchant, Hays, M.D. of Taber, Turin and Vauxhall.
OTHER WAYS TO DONATE:
Donors can contribute to the endowment fund where the principle is professionally invested and a portion or all of the interest is used.
PUBLICALY TRADED SECURITIES:
Donors may wish to transfer shares, bonds or mutual funds which can offer tax benefits such as capital gains exemption just like you sold the securities and donated cash.
GIFTS OF LIFE INSURANCE:
Donors who wish can transfer the ownership of a new or existing life insurance policy to the Foundation. Insurance is not subject to probate, therefore flows outside of your estate.
GIVING THROUGH YOUR LAST WILL & TESTAMENT:
Many donors are choosing to name the Foundation in their wills, after providing for their loved ones. Such gifts known as bequests are vital to the Foundations mission to look after the health care of Taber and District's future needs.
Through a gift annuity, the donor establishes an irrevocable gift to the Foundation in return for annuity payments for life, or a number of years.
CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS:
This is a planned gift where the donor makes a gift (usually irrevocable) to a charity through a trust agreement. The donor transfers property to a trustee who holds and manages it, freeing the donor from daily investment decisions and concerns. If the property is income producing, the net income will be paid to the donor and or other named beneficiary(s). When the trust terminates, the trust remainder is distributed to the Foundation. The trust effectively removes assets from the donor’s estate, producing a tax receipt that can be used immediately.
Donors should consult their accountants, solicitors and financial advisers prior to making any donation decision.
Every gift to the Taber and District Health Foundation is an investment in the health of our community. Our continued success is a reflection of the people who choose to give, the people who care about the future of health care.
A Donor Recognition Wall and program has been developed to acknowledge all generous support . The Foundation recognizes all cumulative donations by placing a personalized plaque on the donor wall in Admitting area at the Taber Health Centre.
