Ways to Give

The generous gifts of the people of our community make a difference in the lives of others each and every day.  If you would like to help our efforts to make our community a healthier place to live, work and play please consider one of the giving opportunities listed below:

  • Cash Gifts

    Cash gifts provide immediate help for programs, services, and equipment. Gifts can be made with cash, personal check, or credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.  Online donations are also accepted.
  • In-kind Gifts

    Contributions of products or services that are beneficial to the organization, such as printing services, food for an event, door prize items, etc., are always appreciated. Please check with the one of our Foundations regarding making an in-kind gift.

  • Gifts of Securities or Other Assets

    Appreciated securities, real estate or other assets can be sold or invested for the long-term benefit of the organization. Please contact one of our Foundations for more information on transferring these types of gifts.

  • Memorial/Honor Gifts

    Memorial and honor gifts are a way to honor the memory of a special person or to acknowledge someone on a meaningful occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary.

  • Planned Gifts

    Special tax incentives are available for donors who make a planned gift. This can be done simply through a bequest or another type of vehicle, like a gift annuity, charitable trust, life insurance, or pooled income fund. These gifts may offer a number of advantages, which include: income for life or a term of years to a donor and/or other beneficiary, such as a spouse or other family member; reduction of the donor's tax obligations as a result of a charitable income tax deduction; help to "unlock" income from highly appreciated, but low-yielding property, without incurring any capital gains tax; and save estate and gift taxes.

Tax Exemption

York Health Foundation, Gettysburg Hospital Foundation and Ephrata Community Health Foundation are all private, not-for-profit corporations and are exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS Code.
