The Rooks County Healthcare Foundation is classified as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization by the IRS. As such, the foundation accepts a variety of gifts that are tax-deductible as allowed by law, including the following:

  • Gifts of Cash – outright or pledged over a period of five years.
  • Gifts of Securities – including stocks, bonds, mutual funds and IRAs.

  • Gifts of Insurance – RCH must be both the owner and beneficiary for the donor to receive a charitable deduction.
  • Gifts of Bequests – i.e. gifts received at death directed by a will or living trust.

Any one of these gifts or a combination may be used to create a current or deferred gift to the campaign. A current gift is a gift to be received during the five-year pledge window of the campaign. A deferred gift, also called an estate gift, planned gift or ultimate gift, is a gift that will not likely be realized during the five-year window.
