Dedicate a gift in tribute.
A gift in memory or in honor is a beautiful way to pay tribute to someone dear to you. By giving today, you will also help to dispel the stigma surrounding mental illness and fight for those who still need help fighting.
Making a Gift for the Future:
Become a monthly donor.
Giving monthly allows your gift to work harder. It’s the most effective way to provide steady, on-going funds to help support mental health and mental healthcare. You can donate as much as you are able and alter, change or cancel your donation at any time.
Leave a gift in your will.
Planned gifts are usually larger and more lasting gifts that you promise to make at a future point in time. They enable donors to leave a personal legacy to the Foundation while protecting their own income security in the years ahead. They also provide significant advantages for estate planning purposes, such as minimizing the amount of tax that will be payable on your final estate tax return.
Name the Mental Health Foundation as a beneficiary.
A gift of life insurance is a wonderful way to make a significant contribution and can involve assigning the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of an existing policy or taking out a new policy. Either way, you can receive a tax credit today for the premiums you pay.
Create an endowment fund.
A named endowment fund can be an excellent way to ensure your gift will continue to support the Foundation over time. Establish an endowment in your name or in tribute to someone close to you with a minimum contribution of $25,000.
