Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Using stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares that have increased in value is one of the most popular ways to make a charitable gift.  Giving appreciated securities provides a charitable deduction, in most cases, for the full fair-market value of the property, and enables you to avoid capital-gain tax.  You must have held the appreciated securities for at least a year to receive these benefits.

Qualified IRA Distributions

Make a gift to Princeton HealthCare System Foundation through your IRA by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution, previously called the IRA Charitable Rollover. The IRS now permanently recognizes this opportunity to give to charity from your IRA and avoid taxes on IRA distributions. Note: Donors will not receive a tax deduction for their gifts; instead, the gift from their IRA is considered a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and free from income tax while still qualifying towards your Required Minimum Distribution as long as the gift (QCD) is directly transferred to charity.*

Gifts by Will

Preserve your income while supporting Princeton HealthCare System by including us in your will or living trust. This is one of the simplest and most popular ways to support us. There are no estate or inheritance taxes on charitable bequests, which can significantly reduce the tax burden of your estate for your heirs. Your bequest can be unrestricted or directed to a specific purpose.  You can leave Princeton HealthCare System:

  • A specific sum of money
  • A percentage of your estate
  • A specific item
  • Real estate
  • Any combination of these assets.
