    Ways to Give

    A gift to Kadlec Foundation is a gift that touches many lives in our region. We are pleased to work with you to identify the giving option that best meets your philanthropic goals and financial needs. Kadlec Foundation welcomes many methods of giving, including:

    One-time gift – You may make a one-time gift using cash, check or credit card or online at our Donation page. Your gift may be designated to a particular program/department, or left unrestricted, which will benefit the area of greatest need.

    Pledge or sustained support – You may make a pledged gift, to be paid over time with a regular payment schedule. You may also make a sustained gift, where you authorize monthly donations from your credit card.

    Appreciated securities – You may make a gift of stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have been held for at least one year. This is an especially attractive option, as you receive a tax deduction and avoid paying capital gains tax if you were to sell the securities.

    Real estate and personal property gifts – Both real estate and personal property can be accepted as gifts. A second home, vacation home or piece of undeveloped real estate make attractive gifts, as does personal property such as artwork.

    Ways to Give to Kadlec Foundation

    Planned gift – A planned gift is one in which the donor retains an interest and the remainder will be received by the Foundation at a future time. Bequests from a will are planned gifts, as are gift annuities and charitable trusts. Donors of planned gifts receive special recognition. Joining Kadlec Legacy Society gives its members a way to express their commitment to Kadlec through a very special and important form of financial support.

    These donors have named Kadlec Foundation as a beneficiary of a gift through their will or estate plan, and notified us of their intent. Kadlec Legacy Society members will be listed on the Donor Wall in the Roger W. James Lobby (Main Lobby) and in the Annual Report and will receive invitations to receptions, special events and the annual donor dinner.

    IRA gift – To make a donation that will count as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), please make the check from your IRA payable to Kadlec Regional Medical Center. Kadlec Foundation, as a supporting organization, may not receive IRA gifts for QCD status. Please also ensure that the distribution is made by your IRA custodian directly from your account to Kadlec (not withdrawn first/made out to you) or the tax benefits will not apply. 

    If the check is mailed to the Foundation, we will make sure it is appropriately acknowledged and designated:

    Kadlec Foundation
    888 Swift Boulevard
    Richland, WA 99352

    Tribute gift – Whether as a way to honor a loved one or to recognize the people who provided care and support, a tribute gift given in someone’s name is a meaningful way of paying tribute and expressing appreciation.

    Commemorative opportunities – To recognize significant gifts made for specific hospital services or special areas. Gifts may be named in honor of the donor or a loved one.

    K-LIFE –  Kadlec's new pooled income fund K-LIFE (Kadlec Life Income Fund) is an opportunity that takes advantage of tax laws intended to encourage and reward philanthropy. For more information regarding K-LIFE visit our K-LIFE page.
