You can make an investment in your community in a variety of ways from a one-time gift of cash to a charitable trust. Many choices are tax-deductible, and we encourage you to consult with your tax advisor to determine which way of giving is best for you.
Donations can be made on a one-time or recurring monthly basis, and can be attributed to our general fund or earmarked for any one of nine separate individual funds which support various programs run by Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare.
Individual Membership is $50.00 annually ($10.00 for alumni). When you join you will not only be helping the foundation grow, but you’ll also know that your gift is helping people and their families recover from the effects of addiction and mental illness.
Corporate Memberships are $100.00 annually and are a great way to help the foundation and promote your business at the same time. You will receive:
- Your company’s logo and a link on our website
- Inclusion in the Foundation’s social media postings
Memorial and Tribute Programs provide an opportunity to remember family and friends’ in a unique way. You may wish to consider this type of gift to SMAF to celebrate a loved one’s birthday, graduation, or other special occasion.
Gift of Appreciated Securities – A tax deduction for a gift of securities (corporate stock, or bonds or mutual funds) may be greater than a cash gift provide your base (the amount you paid) is lower than its current appreciated value.
Real Estate – By giving real estate you avoid the difficulties of selling property and pay capital gains taxes. Our research must indicate that we can sell the property.
Long Term Investments That Pay Income To Donors – Trusts can be established where you as donor can receive income during your lifetime and at the same time provide income to the Foundation. Various trust gifts allow donors to receive a major tax-deduction for establishing charitable trusts. Please consult your legal and financial advisor.
