Through generous donations from our community and beyond, we continue to provide a superior level of senior living. These donations directly impact the residents by providing financial support to those who may be experiencing hardship, allowing us to continue our vibrant chapel ministry, and expanding our wellness programs for residents as well as community members.
Our wonderful donors recognize the importance of caring for our senior population and the positive impact Still Hopes has on its residents and greater community. It is with gifts like yours that we can continue our mission of making Still Hopes a place where life is rich for generations to come.
Ways to Give
By naming Still Hopes as a beneficiary of your will, it not only costs nothing to you but can also significantly reduce the real estate tax for your heirs.
Quick and simple, you may use your credit card to make a gift online or donate over the phone, by mail, or wire transfer.
Whether is be a principal residence, vacation home, farm, commercial building, subdivision lot, or land, you may gift the property or a fractional interest in the property to Still Hopes. Doing this will allow you to claim a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the real estate while avoiding capital gains taxes on appreciation.
All real estate gifts require prior approval by Still Hopes' Executive Management.
Gifts in Kind
Artwork, architectural drawings, collectibles, books, supplies, and so much more can benefit Still Hopes and your potential tax write-off depending on the use of the gift.
Gifts of Stock or Securities
Gifts of appreciated shares of marketable securities are valuable for allowing Still Hopes to continue its mission while serving as a significant tax advantage for you.
Charitable Gift Annuity
In exchange for your charitable gift, Still Hopes will pay you and/or your loved ones a fixed annuity for life. The size of the payment is determined at the time the gift is made. Receive an immediate tax deduction for a portion of the gift while this deduction can be used over as many as 6 consecutive years.
Life Insurance Gifts
Make a large gift with very little cost. By making Still Hopes the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, you receive immediate and future income tax deductions for the total premiums paid or the fair market value of the policy.
IRA Charitable Rollovers
If you are at least six months over 70, directly transfer up to $100,000 per year tax free from your IRA account to Still Hopes.
