Planning Your Year-End Gifts

It is the mission of Jane Phillips Medical Center to provide healthcare and related ministries for the people we serve, especially the sick, the poor, and the powerless. We are guided by our core values as we provide compassionate care to all of our patients. We ask God to provide us wisdom so that we exercise responsible stewardship in the use of our resources.

An additional component of our mission calls for us to successfully address unmet needs in our community and to anticipate the ever increasing demands for care. As you contemplate your charitable giving plans for 2019, consider the value in supporting your local hospital.

In doing so, your spirit of generosity and compassion will be multiplied many times as you help us provide medical care and services to each person who enters our doors.

God’s Blessings.
Mike Moore,  President/Chief Operating Officer

How To Help

Simply Write a Check.

There's no easier way to gain a charitable deduction and to support JPMC at the same time. Your gift is fully deductible on your federal return up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. Gifts exceeding this threshold may be carried forward for tax purposes for up to five years.

Gifts of Stock

You can receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Plus, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock that may have occurred during its ownership.

Gifts of Real Estate

An outright sale of a home, a commercial property or a farm would result in a capital gains tax, assuming the value has increased during ownership. A property gift to Bluestem Foundation could help you avoid capital gains taxes and to receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the property.

Gifts Producing Life Income

You transfer the assets now in an irrevocable arrangement—yet, you continue to receive income from the gift, such as cash, securities, or other property. Such a gift may allow you to receive a significant deduction for a charitable contribution. It may also allow you to increase your income stream from the asset; and, in the case of stock or property, you may avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated value. Each individual's situation is unique, so consultation with your professional advisor is essential.
