Ways to Give

Giving Options

How can you support your community hospital so that vital services are ready and waiting to care for you or a loved one in a time of need? How can you show your appreciation for the care a family member or friend already received at Rideout Memorial Hospital, Rideout Regional Medical Center, Cancer Center or a Senior Living facility? Make a donation - large or small - everyone can help!

Although the donations that "make news" are usually large sums, Rideout Health also appreciates and depends on the generosity of our neighbors who support us with gifts of any amount. We are grateful for every dollar we receive, as your donation helps FRHG grow and continue its outstanding service to our community.

The following information can help you make a gift that benefits you and Rideout Health.

The Rideout Health Foundation has created commemorative naming opportunities to recognize the special interest of generous donors.

Goal Chart (see below) Of course your gift is important to the hospitals, but how can making a donation to Rideout Health benefit you?

Charitable Gift Annuity: A charitable gift annuity provides an income fund for the donor.

Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity: Similar to the charitable gift annuity, the deferred charitable gift annuity may be a better choice for younger donors who are planning for supplemental income when they retire.

Bequest: One of the most frequent forms of planned giving, the bequest is tax deductible.

Insurance: Naming Rideout Health as the primary or contingent insurance policy beneficiary is another popular gift.

Charitable Remainder Trust: The charitable remainder annuity is irrevocable and provides a fixed income based on the value of the assets at the time the trust is created.

Charitable Remainder Unitrust: The charitable remainder unitrust is also an irrevocable trust, but provides fluctuating income based on a fixed percentage of the annual value of the trust.

Charitable Lead Trust: The charitable lead trust allows the donor to provide the medical center with income for a specific number of years, which he or she determines (5, 10, 15, 25 years or more).
