Ways of Giving

There are a number of ways to make a gift to Verde Valley Medical Center and its off-site facilities through the VVMC Foundation. Generous support from our community contributes to the excellence in care at VVMC. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, and to encourage voluntary support of deserving charitable organizations such as our nonprofit medical center, federal law provides significant tax and income benefit incentives for your contributions. We think you will be surprised at the extent and value of those benefits.

You can designate your gift to any program or area of care at VVMC or allow your gift to be used where the need is greatest. Your reward will be much more than tax savings alone. Unequaled personal, emotional and spiritual fulfillment comes from helping others. Giving provides a heightened sense of well-being and an inner value that improves heart and health.

Please feel free to call us if you have any questions, or to find out about how you can partner with us, helping fulfill our community mission and at the same time provide possible tax benefits and additional income for you and your loved ones.

Appreciated Stock/Securities or Property     
If you have property, stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, or other investment tools that have increased in value since you have purchased them, you may want to consider making a gift of these items instead of cash. This is a great method for making a significant gift with little or no effect on your current income. In many cases, you can deduct the full, current value of the asset, not just what you paid for it.

To transfer gifts of securities or property, please contact the Foundation at 928 639-6036. We will work with you to develop a clear plan for your property gift.

By remembering Verde Valley Medical Center in your estate plans, you help insure the future of our quality care beyond your lifetime. Often, a bequest allows you to contribute more than you otherwise would be able to give if you had to make the gift from your current income.

You may designate in your will a specific dollar amount, or a certain percentage of your estate to VVMC. Here is the typical terminology:

To Verde Valley Medical Center, 269 S. Candy Lane, Cottonwood, Arizona, 86326, I give $________ (or _______% of my estate). This gift is designated to _____________________ (program) or to the area of greatest need, as determined by the Board of Directors of Verde Valley Medical Center.

You may want to consult with an attorney to make sure the terminology is acceptable with current state law.

By making a bequest to Verde Valley Medical Center, you become a member of a special group of generous donors who support the hospital through an estate gift. For additional information about making an estate gift, contact the Foundation at 928 639-6036.

Matching Gifts     
Many companies will match their employees’ contributions to nonprofit organizations. Please contact the Human Resources department at your place of employment to see if it participates in a matching gift program.

Life Insurance     
Your insurance agent or financial planner can advise you on life insurance as a charitable gift, or contact the Foundation for more information at 928 639-6036.

Retirement Plans     
Individual Retirement Account (IRAs) and company-sponsored pension and profit sharing plans, among other methods of saving for retirement, are increasingly popular tools for contributions. By contributing the balance of your plan to VVMC, you may be able to produce tax savings for your heirs.

Life Income Plans     
There are many tools in this area of giving, including charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, unitrusts, and others. In these arrangements, you receive current income, a partial tax deduction, and in most cases, protect a portion of your estate from inheritance tax. VVMC would receive the proceeds of the gift from your estate.

Corporate/Foundation Gifts     
If your company or private foundation would like to invest in one of our programs, please contact the Foundation at
928 639-6036.

Tribute Program     
A gift of any size can be made in honor or memory of someone. Remember a loved one, recognize a doctor or caregiver at VVMC, or celebrate a special occasion with a gift designated to a specific program or fund, or to the greatest need. We will send a message to the person or family of the person being honored.

For more information on these and other giving options, contact the Foundation for Verde Valley Medical Center at 928 639-6036.
