Gift of Cash

Your gift matters and we are here to assist you in achieving your personal philanthropy goals.

Cash gifts are the easiest to give and the easiest for us to use. They don't have to be actual cash, of course. Checks, debit or credit cards are the most common ways people donate. (Checks can be made payable to Santa Rosa Memorial Foundation.)  You can also set up a monthly contribution that can be automatically charged to a card or account of your choice.

Individual donors receive a tax deduction for cash gifts of up to 60% of their Adjusted Gross Income, with a five-year carryforward.

A donation to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital allows us to make essential improvements, offer the latest technology, and create a healing environment for everyone in our community. Our Foundation staff is here to assist you in making your gift. If you would like to make a multi-year pledge, or if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.

Planned Giving

When you include a gift to Memorial in your estate plans, you help advance our mission for many years to come. There are many ways to leave a legacy of caring. These include:

Bequests: A gift to Santa Rosa Memorial from your estate is both easy and versatile and may help you achieve your goals and benefit the hospital in ways that may not be possible through a gift made during your lifetime. A bequest is a favored method of giving as it allows you to maintain control of your assets during you life, and ultimately benefit the hospital. Your gift can be in the form of cash, securities, a tax-deferred account such as an IRA or 401-K, your home or other property.

Life Income Gifts: Gifts such as a Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Remainder Trust can provide you with secure income during your lifetime as well as substantial tax benefits. These gifts can be funded with cash, property, securities or other appreciated assets.

Gift of Home: The gift of your home or farm via a Life Estate Reserved, allows you to live in the home for life, but enjoy a significant tax deduction during your lifetime.

Please let us know if you have already included Memorial in your estate plans. If you have, we would like to express our appreciation and welcome you to the Al and Helen Maggini Legacy Society.

Al and Helen Maggini Legacy Society

The Al and Helen Maggini Legacy Society honors the Magginis’ many years of dedication to the mission of Providence—to improve the health and quality of life of the people in the communities we serve. Al was one of the founders of our Foundation in 1991 and he still continues to provide trusted, wise advice about the needs of the community and how to meet them.

Anyone who has invested in Memorial’s future by establishing a bequest or other planned gift becomes a member of the Society and are acknowledged by inclusion in the Al and Helen Maggini Legacy Society recognition board in the main lobby of Santa Rosa Memorial. Each year, all Legacy Society members are invited to a luncheon that recognizes and honors our thoughtful and committed benefactors.

If you would like to speak with us regarding gift opportunities involving your estate, please reach out to learn more.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover is now a permanent provision of the federal tax code. It allows donors who are age 70 ½ or older to donate up to $100,000 each year from their IRA. The contribution counts towards your Required Minimum Distribution yet it is not included in your income. A gift from your IRA provides an excellent opportunity to make a gift during your lifetime from an asset that is often subject to multiple layers of taxation if left in your estate.

Transfers must be made directly from a traditional IRA account by your IRA plan administrator. Gifts from 401 (k), 403 (b), SEP or other plans do not qualify for this provision. Contact your plan administrator to initiate.
