WELLNESS: Giving to help others

During this holiday season of giving, our thoughts often turn to how we can help others.

Questions on charitable giving to consider before this year draws to a close may include: When should you give? What should you give? How much should you give?

Charitable donations are an excellent way to reduce your tax burden for the year, all while doing something for the greater good.  Through careful planning, a year-end gift can allow you to do more for others than you may have anticipated and still improve your own position, both today and tomorrow.

A gift to support your local healthcare system provides you with a feeling of personal satisfaction and demonstrates your belief in our mission. For information on what your tax-deductible gift could do to benefit local patients and the community, see our 2014 annual appeal letter.

Thank you for any gift you make to help others this holiday season!
