"We provide the best emergency care anywhere!"

The Bottom Line:
We Can't Do It Without YOU

Johnson Memorial Hospital is a tremendous resource for our community. Its very presence is a comfort to us - a promise that we will have the care we need and deserve, close to home. The proposed $7 million expansion of the emergency department is the latest example of Johnson Memorial Hospital's commitment to keep that promise. But it also requires a commitment from you, in return.

A project of this magnitude is the investment of a lifetime, one that we undertake together, for the good of all who live and work in our community. To help you do your part, we offer a variety of giving options, all of which are tax-deductible.

Cash Contribution
You can support the project with a gift of cash, either through a pledge, payable over three years, or a check made out to Johnson Memorial Hospital-ED.

For maximum tax benefits, you may want to consider a gift of
long-term appreciated securities. You will receive an immediate tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, up to
30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Because you will not be subject to any tax on the appreciation, you will realize significant tax savings.

Life Insurance
You can name Johnson Memorial Hospital as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. You can transfer ownership of an existing policy that is fully paid or you can establish a new policy in the Hospital's name and agree to make quarterly or annual premium payments.

Retirement Plans
You may want to use your retirement savings to make a contribution. Left to heirs other than a spouse, retirement savings funds can incur both estate and income taxes. Donating them to charity reduces the tax burden borne by your heirs, and provides you with a sizable tax deduction. Simply name Johnson Memorial Hospital as the beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), 401(k), or other retirement savings plan.
