What are the different ways to give?
You can mail a check to the Florida Hospital New Smyrna Foundation, P.O. Box 1000, NSB, Fl 32170. Your cash donation can be specified for a particular purpose or allowed to be unrestricted and used for one of our many projects.
In this process, you would make a contribution to the Foundation, which will then set up a special account and invest the principal. Then we follow very prudent financial strategies to protect your money and help it grow. You can establish an endowment in your own name or in honor or in memory of someone who is special to you. The minimum investment for an Endowment at Florida Hospital New Smyrna is $50,000.
Memorial and Tribute Giving
You may want to make a memorial gift, preserving the memory of a family member or friend who has passed away. Or you may wish to make a tribute gift, as a way to personally honor a living friend or relative. A tribute gift may also be made to honor a nurse, physician, or volunteer who helped during a hospital stay.
This popular approach to charitable giving allows you to make a lasting impact on the community while benefitting your tax profile. Planned giving opportunities include wills and bequests, gifts of securities, real estate or personal property as well as annuities, charitable trusts and life insurance.
