Become part of our team…today, tomorrow, forever…and inspire others while creating a lasting legacy. Please consider the Brandywine Health Foundation in your estate plans.
For many of us, there is a compelling need to make a difference—to leave a lasting impact on the people most dear to us and the world in which we live. Philanthropy is an expression of your generosity with the understanding that your gift to us can make a significant impact here in the greater Coatesville area, a community where there is great need but also great promise.
There are many ways in which you can make a gift to further our important work and help create a strong, healthy, and vibrant Coatesville Community.
What kind of legacy will you leave?
Planned giving is a way to integrate your personal, financial and estate planning goals. The right planned gift may provide you with tax and income benefits while helping our organization further its mission. Here are two of the most common planned gifts you can make:
Outright Gift of an Asset
If you wish to make a gift to support the Brandywine Health Foundation this year but are concerned about preserving your cash resources, consider a gift of an appreciated asset. A gift of securities, business interests or real estate can provide you with significant income and capital gains tax savings, often exceeding the benefits of a cash gift.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Congress made permanent the law that allows people age 70½ or older who own an IRA to make cash gifts directly from their IRA to charity. For many people, this is the best tax-wise way to give. An IRA rollover gift will not be included in your taxable income and will qualify for your required minimum distribution.
