Frequently Asked Questions About Charitable Contributions
Where would my contribution go?
Your contribution might be used in a number of ways, depending on your preference. It could be used for a room renovation, the walking trail, or even purchasing a new piece of equipment for one of our departments.
Can I receive tax benefits from donating to PMH?
Yes! You will receive tax benefits when you donate to PMH. You can deduct charitable contributions on your federal income tax return.
How do I claim this as a charitable contribution?
You can deduct a charitable contribution to PMH by including it on Schedule A of the 1040 Form. You should provide your accountant a copy of the Tax-Deductible Charitable Contribution Form that is downloadable at the bottom of this page.
Is donating to PMH like donating to a 501(c)(3)?
Yes it is. Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is a county owned hospital and has been granted tax-exempt status by the IRS and is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions.
Can I donate stock?
Yes! By donating appreciated securities (e.g., stocks and mutual funds) to PMH, you may receive gift credit and an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them, and you may pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
Can I leave my estate to PMH?
We would be honored to be included in your legacy planning. Naming PMH as one of the beneficiaries of your IRA, your life insurance policy, or your trust can be an easy and tax-efficient way to continue your charitable giving.
How would I be recognized? Can I donate anonymously?
Large gifts with naming opportunities (such as refurbishing an entire room) are recognized with a plaque outside the room. Gifts of more than $500 are recognized on a listing in the lobby. If you wish to donate anonymously, simply check the appropriate box on the Contribution Form and we will ensure that your gift is kept completely anonymous.
