How do I get a receipt for tax purposes?
If you make a donation directly to the Foundation, your donation is 100% tax deductible, and you will automatically receive a written acknowledgment on our Foundation letterhead to submit for tax purposes. If you are participating in an event where you pay for entry or tickets, only a portion of your donation is tax deductible. Our office can determine the amount that is deductible on these occasions, and send a written acknowledgment at your request.
How do you acknowledge donations?
All donors will receive an acknowledgment letter that may be used for tax purposes. In addition, they receive Synapse, our hospital magazine, which will keep you informed on our programs and services, as well as invitations to special health and education events sponsored by the hospital. Donors who make a gift of $50 or more will receive public acknowledgment in the annual Donor Report, unless specified to remain anonymous, for the fiscal year in which they gave.
