Matching Gifts

Does your employer have a matching gift program? Many organizations support their
employees’ philanthropic giving by matching a donation to their employees’ charities of
choice either 100% or partially. Ask your employer’s human resources director if your
company matches gifts.

In most cases, donors will need to complete a form and submit it us to verify a donation
was made. We’ll return the completed form on your behalf in order to receive the
matching gift.

Grateful Patient Program

The Grateful Patient Program gives you the opportunity to recognize the care you or a
loved one received as a patient at Siskin Hospital.

Planned Giving

Recognize Siskin Hospital in your long-range plans with such gifts as a bequest, trust arrangement or other estate-planning vehicles. Whether you contribute through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, or charitable trust, or other method, you are ensuring that Siskin Hospital’s tradition of caring will continue for future generations. Below are several popular options for Planned Giving.

  • Charitable Gift Annuity – Consider a gift to Siskin Hospital that will generate income for yourself or your family. These gifts allow a means for you to reduce the taxable portion of your estate, provide a source of income for you and your family, create a current income tax deduction and benefit healthcare.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust  – Unlike a gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust is not a contract with a single charity to make a guaranteed payment. A charitable remainder trust (CRT) is an irrevocable trust that generates a potential income stream for you or other beneficiaries, with the remainder of the donated assets going to your favorite charity or charities. The CRT is a good option if you want an immediate charitable deduction, but also have a need for an income stream to yourself or another person. It is also a good option if you want to establish one by will to provide for heirs, with the remainder going to one or more charities of your choosing.
  • Donor-Advised Fund – A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, like the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.
  • Gifts of Stock – A gift of stock directly to Siskin Hospital gives the donor tax benefits and allows the organization access to the gift immediately.

Siskin Hospital does not engage in legal or tax-advisory services. This information is provided as a general guide. For specifics, please consult with your financial advisor, attorney or tax specialist.

For more information on planned giving or if you need assistance finding a financial advisor, please email jbuffkin@siskinrehab.org or call 423.634.1208.

Donations in Lieu of Presents

As you consider the best way to show love to those close to you, this year please consider a monetary gift to Siskin Hospital instead of presents that you may receive at Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, anniversary or birthday. We can help you with wording for your special occasion so your wishes and gifts are properly acknowledged.
