How will my donation be used?

There are two types of gifts: restricted and unrestricted. Unrestricted gifts allow the hospital to decide which patient care area would most benefit from your generosity. Restricted gifts are those in which the donor directs his/her contribution to benefit a specific patient care area, the purchase of a piece of equipment, building project, or endowment. When you give to Huntington Hospital, you can be assured that your donation will be used in exactly the way that you intend. 

How will my donation be recognized?

Hospital donors are valued and appreciated. There are various recognition vehicles depending on the size of your gift and its area of designation..

All gifts (with the permission of the donor) of $500 or more are recognized in the Hospital's Annual Report published each year and distributed to over 100,000 households in Huntington and its surrounding communities. Gifts of $5,000 or more are recognized with the donor's name being publicly displayed within the hospital. Gifts are recognized cumulatively, meaning that all donors' giving is tracked annually. Some gifts have multiple recognitions.

Gifts can be made to name rooms, units, wings, and buildings. These opportunities begin with donations of $10,000.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Huntington Hospital is a not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 organization. As such, all donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. 

Can I pay my gift off over time?

You may make a pledge which can be paid off in one lump sum or in installments over time. Please contact the Development Office at (631) 470-5201 to discuss pledges.

Do you accept employer Matching Gifts?

Many employers offer matching gift programs. By notifying your Human Resources Department of your donation, you can effectively double the value of your gift to Huntington Hospital. Please check with your employer to initiate the matching gift process.

Can I donate real estate, stocks or other assets?

We do accept gifts of real estate, stocks, and appreciated assets. In addition to the savings available through a charitable tax deduction, gifts of appreciated assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) that you have owned for at least one year affords you the opportunity to be exempt from capital gains taxes that would normally be due the IRS if you sold the assets.

Special rules apply to certain types of non-cash gifts such as real estate and tangible personal property (art, jewelry, etc.). Check with your tax advisor for details.

To make a gift of real estate, stocks or other assets, please contact Alexandra P. Brovey at (516) 465-2610.

Are there other ways to support the hospital?

You may wish to remember the hospital in your Will. It's easy, convenient, and constitutes a meaningful legacy. A Will ensures that your wishes are carried out and prevents the state from making decisions that may be contrary to your wants and needs. Consult your attorney for assistance.

A Huntington Hospital annuity provides a way to generate income for the donor, while at the same time supporting Huntington Hospital. The North Shore-LIJ Huntington Hospital Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) offers extremely high rates of return that exceed those offered by bank certificates of deposit. Income is generated for life. Upon the donor's death, the principal is applied toward whichever Huntington Hospital program the donor has specified. Please contact Alexandra P. Brovey at (516) 465-2610 for more information.

Last, Huntington Hospital is always looking for fundraising volunteers. To discuss opportunities to support the hospital by volunteering at a special event or joining a committee, please contact us at (631) 470-5201.
