Types of Gifts Accepted
Contributions may be made in several forms, including:
- Cash/Check/Credit Card/PayPal
Stocks & Bonds
Gifts of readily marketable securities are accepted by APD. Donated securities should be sent by certified or registered mail, or hand delivered. A stock power form, signed by the donor and naming Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital of Lebanon, New Hampshire as transferee, should be sent in a separate envelope, again using certified or registered mail.
Donors may instruct their broker or agent to transfer securities to APD as gifts. The donors should instruct their broker to immediately notify the Director of Development of the gift and to request instructions for correct handling of the securities. Securities and certificates do not need to be (and preferably should not be) re-issued in the name of the APD. A signed stock power is sufficient to effect title transfer.
Assets of tangible personal property such as art, jewelry, antiques and books can be contributed as provided by law. For IRS purposes, the burden of proof regarding the amount of the charitable deduction rests with the donor.
If you own property that is fully paid off and has appreciated in value, an outright gift may be the simplest solution. You can deduct the fair market value of your gift, avoid all capital gains taxes and remove that asset from your taxable estate. You can transfer the deed of your home or farm now and keep the right to use the property for your lifetime and that of your spouse. If the property has appreciated, you or your family would avoid the capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.
There are a variety of planned gift opportunities available in support of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital. Please visit our Planned Giving page for more information.
