Corporate Matching Gifts

Gift to Endowments

Endowment Funds are a permanent savings account for OHHRF. Only the earnings of the endowment or a percentage of the endowment balance is used each year. Endowment gifts can be supplemental funding for essential budget items. Income from an endowment can keep OHHRF as the nation’s leader in heart research and education.

Tribute Gifts – Honorarium and Memorials

Make a gift to honor or thank a loved one, special friend, treating physician, or nurse. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, special events, or in memory of an individual may all be occasions for a Tribute Gift. The donor will receive a gift acknowledgment, and notification of the gift will be sent to the individual the donor designates.

Naming Opportunities

Naming opportunities are available in honor of donors who contribute a significant gift to OHHRF. There are various opportunities to link names with special facilities or programs and each deserve special consideration.

Gift of Real Estate or Art

Tangible personal property items are fully deductible at their fair market value.

Planned Gifts

While most people think of “planned giving” as a charitable gift made at the time of their death, it is certainly fulfilling to see your gift working while you are alive. In many cases, there may be tax benefits as well. Cash, appreciated securities, a bequest through a will, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts or annuities, charitable lead trusts, and retained life estates are all ways to make a planned gift to OHHRF. As with all charitable gifts, donors should consult legal and financial counsel before entering into any agreement.

  • Gift of Life Insurance – The contribution of a life insurance policy can provide a significant gift and make an impact on future generations of OHHRF. By designating OHHRF as both the owner and beneficiary of the life insurance policy, the premiums are tax deductible to the donor.
  • Wills – After providing for the needs of your loved ones, you can choose to leave a bequest to OHHRF. By having your attorney prepare a new will or adding a supplement to your current will, you can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, asset, or percentage of the entire estate or the residual of your estate. Please contact your attorney and/or tax advisor before making any charitable gift.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts – Charitable remainder trusts provide ways to make a gift that allows you to receive the income from a gifted asset for your lifetime or a specific time period, not longer than twenty years. When the trust term ends, whatever remains in the trust is distributed to OHHRF. Please contact your attorney, and/or tax advisor to determine if a charitable remainder trust would fit your financial situation.
