Provide security or stock as a gift to Maine Medical Center

A gift of stock, bonds or mutual shares that has increased in value, usually has a greater tax benefit than giving cash. Because of that, appreciated securities are often an advantageous way to make a gift to the hospital. Benefits can include:
  • Increased value for your gift and decreased cost to you.
  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted stock or securities. 
  • Elimination of capital gains tax that would normally apply if you sold the appreciated stock or securities on the open market and donated the proceeds.

Designate through a donor-advised fund

Donor-advised funds allow you to make a gift and receive an immediate tax deduction. You then can recommend grants from the fund over time. Contributions placed into a donor-advised fund account, your impact can be invested and grow tax-free.

Contact the administrator of your donor-advised fund and recommend a gift to Maine Medical Center or The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. Let them know where you would like your gift to go to have the greatest impact.
