Matching Gifts

Double or triple the impact of your gift to St. Helena Hospital! Many companies have a matching gift program that matches part or all of their employee's gifts to charities. Contact your Human Resource Department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds offer substantial tax advantages, such as forgiveness of the tax on capital gains and a charitable income tax deduction for their fair market value. In order to maximize your capital gains savings, we encourage you to transfer securities directly to the Foundation rather than selling them and then making a cash donation. 

For more information on making a gift using a credit card, cash or securities, please call the Foundation Office at 707-963-6208 or via email at shhfoundation@ah.org.

Principal and Major Gifts

Many individuals wish to make a major investment in the future of the hospital. Perhaps they’ve received superb care and wish to support the hospital's patient care programs. Or, they may wish to fund clinical research to help the hospital find better treatment options. Regardless of motivation, philanthropy makes a lasting impact on the hospital's mission. If you are interested in learning more, our Foundation staff stands ready to help you match your generous intent with the current needs of St. Helena Hospital.

Planned Gifts

By remembering St. Helena Hospital Foundation in your estate plans, you can leave a meaningful mark on the hospital's work that spans beyond your years. In fact, many donors find that through bequests, they are able to make a significant philanthropic commitment more comfortably than doing so during their lifetime. Many types of planned and life income gifts also offer benefits to donors and their families in addition to the charitable support provided to the hospital.

We encourage you to seek advice from your personal legal/tax counsel in determining your individual charitable tax deductions.
