Cash/Credit Card Gift
The simplest way to support CAMC is through cash gifts. Gifts of cash are the most common form of contribution to CAMC Foundation. A gift of cash is easy to do, and the gift is not subject to gift or estate taxation.
Smart gift planning combines charitable intent with cost-efficient planning techniques. Of critical importance is the kind of asset used to fund the gift. Usually, long-term appreciated property can generate the most favorable tax benefits. Reason: Gifts of such property provide a double benefit-a charitable deduction, in most cases, for the full fair-market value of the property-plus avoidance of any potential capital-gain tax.
A meaningful way to honor someone special, living or deceased, is through a commemorative gift in his or her name. The next of kin, or a person you designate, will be notified that you have made a gift (amount not included). You will receive an acknowledgement from the Foundation that your gift has been received.
If you would like to designate CAMC Foundation to receive donations in memory of your loved one, we suggest the following language in the obituary:
"In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the CAMC Foundation, 3412 Staunton Avenue SE Charleston, WV or call 304-388-9860"
