Current and Planned Gifts. The Rio Grande Cancer Foundation accepts gifts and pledges of current assets as well as planning gifts including bequests, appreciated securities, real estate property, life insurance, retirement plans and charitable remainder trusts. Donors may establish a named fund with gifts or pledges of $5,000 over a five year period and may designate their gift to the fund of their choice. Prospective donors are encouraged to speak with Foundation staff to ensure that the Foundation can accomplish the donor’s charitable goals.
Memorials and Gifts. The Foundation accepts contributions in honor of the memory of family members and friends. Undesignated honorary/memorial gifts will be placed in the Foundation’s mission fund, while designated memorial funds are used as specified by the donor. The Foundation will send a thank you/tax letter to the donor making the honorary/memorial gift and a letter of acknowledgement to the family or friend that a gift has been made.
Gifts to the Foundation may be classified as permanently restricted, temporarily restricted, or unrestricted; however, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the Foundation, all gifts shall be classified as unrestricted.
Many people also choose to leave donations to the Foundation in their wills as a legacy to future survivors. Please consider leaving gifts to the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation in your will. It’s a tribute never forgotten, and it will grow and spread its impact for our community.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
