Planned Giving Corner:
What is a planned gift?
A planned gift can be defined as a way to support nonprofit organizations and charities that enables the individual/donor to make a larger gift than they could make from their income. This gift may be made during a donor’s lifetime or at death. Some planned gifts provide lifelong income to the donor. Others, through estate and tax planning techniques, can provide for a charity and other heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor's estate.
Whether a donor uses cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both a donor and a charity.
A planned gift may include:
- An outright gift that uses appreciated assets as a substitute for cash
- A gift that returns income or other financial benefits to the donor in return for the contribution
- A gift payable upon the donor’s death
Contact Steve Sullivan at the Foundation to learn how you can make a positive impact on the future of healthcare with a planned gift. He can be reached at (610) 447-6112 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crozer Campaign: Extreme Makeover ~ The Crozer Edition
On Oct. 17, 2012, the employees at Crozer-Chester Medical Center kicked off a campaign to raise funds for The Extreme Makeover – The Crozer Edition. The goal is to raise $325,000 over a three-year period to help support the improvements for the environment of care and create 200 private rooms, and to upgrade the hospital corridors.
Everyone enjoyed the festive kick-off event that included a video presentation, games, music, food and a guest appearance by a member of the Philadelphia Union. Weekly activities and games will be held up to Nov. 14 in the Atrium and cafeteria during lunch time. Employees are encouraged to support this project through donations made by payroll deductions or one-time only donations made by cash, check or credit card. Just think ― a donation of only a $2.50 per week will equal a $390 donation in three years. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Employees who participate are eligible for weekly prizes as well as the grand prizes, which will be selected at the celebration event on Nov. 14. The Crozer-Chester Foundation thanks campaign chairs and committee members for the donation of their time, energy and enthusiasm. This improvement project will benefit our staff, families, neighbors and friends who live and work in our community.
