Why give?

Are you contemplating a charitable contribution to the TRUST? We offer several reasons below why giving to the TRUST is an excellent decision, but it may also help to hear from our current donors and learn why they're giving.

Tax advantages and charitable deductions

All donations to the Hospital TRUST are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. But in 2012, qualifying donors may have a special opportunity to make an IRA charitable rollover, if Congress extends an opportunity offered in 2010 and 2011. If you are 70 1/2, you may be able to contribute up to $100,000 of your required IRA distribution to the Hospital TRUST, tax-free. Please call Julie Nickell at 513.664.3850 for more details on this potential giving opportunity, subject to approval of the 2012 Congress.

Why they are giving

Each year, hundreds of new and established donors realize "Giving is Good Medicine" and make donations to the TRUST. Here are some of the most popular reasons our donors give:

  • Gratitude for treatment.
  • Honor or memorialize someone special to them and their community.
  • Inspire and motivate others to give.
  • Gifts are tax-deductible.
  • Benefit a specific fund, program or department.
  • Benefit the community.
  • Achieve a listing on the Donor Wall.
  • Receive an income stream with certain tax-deductible gifts.

Who is giving?

The TRUST receives contributions from individuals, families, corporations and foundations. Our donors are McCullough-Hyde patients, families of patients, McCullough-Hyde physicians, staff and volunteers, members of the hospital board, citizens in the hospital's service area, and grant-making organizations.
