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:
Outright gift – You may contribute an immediate gift using a personal check, cash or your credit card, or on line via our "make a donation" link. Your gift may be designated to a particular program or to the "area of greatest need."
Pledge – You may wish to make an extended pledge gift, where you agree to a regularly scheduled payment over a period of time.
Stocks and securities – You may make an outright gift with your stocks, bonds, and or mutual fund shares that have appreciated. This is an especially attractive option, as you enjoy significant tax savings by donating securities that you have held for at least one year.
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.
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.
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.
