Make a gift from your retirement account

A Qualified Charitable Deduction (QCD) allows taxpayers age 70 ½ or older to transfer up to $100,000 annually directly from their retirement accounts to a public charity – without it being counted as taxable income. This gift can be used as your required minimum distribution (RMD).

Your gift of a QCD helps MCH provide vital health care and can help you by keeping your taxable income lower which may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare.

Employee matching gifts

Many employers offer matching contributions, which is a great way to double or triple the impact of your gift. Contact your Human Resources department to request a matching gift form.

You can leave a legacy to improve your community’s health.

For many people a planned gift is the most significant gift they’ll ever make. A planned gift is more than a donation – it is a way to leave a remarkable legacy to ensure that your values and beliefs will endure. And for Mountain Community Health a planned gift allows us to continue investing in our communities and serving our neighbors.

We invite you to become a part of this legacy by making a Planned Gift to MCH. There are many ways to make a lasting gift; some of the most common ways include: bequests, gifts of property, gifts from a life insurance policy or IRAs, charitable annuities and remainder trusts.

MCH recommends that you discuss your gift plans with your financial and legal advisers. We also are happy to discuss your plans and would welcome the opportunity to learn more about your goals for your gift.

Two of the easiest and most common ways to make a planned gift are:

Leave a Gift in Your Will

Naming MCH as a beneficiary of your will, a trust, a retirement fund, or life insurance policy is an impactful and easy way to leave a legacy. You can specify a certain amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residual after other bequests are distributed. If you decide to leave a gift in your will we hope you will let us know so that we can thank you now and work with you to understand the intention(s) of your gift..

We’ve also included sample bequest language that you can use:

I give, devise and bequeath to Mountain Community Health, a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization located in Vermont, [the sum of $_____ or _____ percentage or residual] of my estate to be used to support the general purpose of Mountain Community Health.
