Some employers will match some or all of a gift made by an employee, allowing you to double, or even triple the impact of your generosity. Many companies will also match gifts made by spouses or retirees. Contact your employer's human resources office to learn if they offer a matching gift program. In most cases, you can send or email us a form along with your gift and we will arrange the matching gift with your employer following your gift. For more information, call us at 810-606-6278

If you are older than 71 1/2 years and required to take distributions from your Individual Retirement account (IRA), you can direct all or part of that distribution to be made directly to the Ascension Genesys Foundation as a Charitable gift. Simply instruct your financial institution to remit a check payable to the Ascension Genesys Foundation (annotated with the specific fund or designation you would like to support). IRA charitable distributions are made tax free and still count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD).

The Ascension Genesys Foundation is proud to work with donors who wish to not only leave a lasting philanthropic impact but also ensure that heirs and loved ones are also cared for. Working together, we can develop plans to achieve your philanthropic goals, maximize tax position advantages, create or maintain life or disposable income. For more information or to discuss how we can achieve your charitable goals, please contact Ryan Bladzik, Major Gifts Officer, at the Ascension Genesys Foundation. 810-606-6278 or via email at ryan.bladzik@ascension.org

 

Types of Gifts

Cash gifts can be made with cash, check or via credit card or automatic bank withdrawal. You can mail your gift, make it in person in our offices, or use our secure online giving form.

Gifts of cash can also be deferred until you or your loved ones pass away through naming the Foundation as the recipient of a bequest in your will or estate plans, or by designating a bank or retirement account to be payable to the Foundation upon death. You can also use gifts of cash to fund a charitable gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, or a charitable lead trust.

If you itemize on your federal taxes, your gift of cash may provide a benefit through a charitable tax deduction.

You can make gift of closely-held appreciated securities Ascension Genesys. You may directly transfer securities or mutual funds that have appreciated in value and that you've held for at least a year. To transfer securities, simply instruct your broker to transfer the securities to the Ascension Genesys Foundation (if you have the physical securities, contact us so we can help you handle the transfer). You can also leave gifts of securities through transfer orders upon your passing, through a will or other estate plans, and can also be used to fund a charitable trust.

Direct gifts of securities may help you reduce or avoid capital gains taxes on the transfer and possible income tax savings through a charitable deduction. Securities are also commonly used to fund charitable lead trusts, which could result in a tax-free transfer to your loved ones after you pass.

A gift in-kind is a gift of personal, tangible property that is made use of for charitable purposes by the Ascension Genesys Foundation. Gifts In-Kind may be usable items or equipment, or may be valuable items that can be converted into funding for critical needs. If you have items you are considering donating, please contact the Foundation so we can work with you on maximizing your impact.
