As a registered charity the Black Gold Health Foundation receives all donations or contributions to the Leduc Community Hospital and the public Health Centres of Beaumont, Leduc and Thorsby. Financial contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible. (Receipts are issued for all donations over $25)
This program offers the community-at-large the opportunity to support local health-care initiatives. County-wide businesses, schools, churches and service groups become a Donation Station by simply hosting a donation box at their location. Several locations also accept Canadian Tire Money. Locations may choose to participate for a specific campaign period or on a year round basis.You too can help those in need of health-care services. This campaign offers the opportunity for all businesses and residents of our county-wide community to participate. Participating businesses
Tributes, Honorariums and Grants
Tribute gifts offer an excellent opportunity to make a donation in memory of someone close to you, to mark a special occasion, or to express your appreciation to people in your life. When you make a tribute donation, the Foundation informs the honouree or family of your kindness. (The amount of the donation is kept confidential unless otherwise advised.)
Endowments and Planned Gifts
Through an endowment, your contribution provides ongoing support over a number of years, or in perpetuity – your gift is invested and only the interest from the investment is used. Through a planned gift, you make a contribution to the Foundation in your estate. This may consist of cash, securities, real estate, personal property, life insurance policies, trust funds and annuities.
Both endowments and planned gifts can offer potentially significant tax deductions and other benefits. Consult with your financial adviser when considering the Black Gold Health Foundation as your benefactor.
Gifts In Kind come in many forms…from door prizes at events to items that will be auctioned to the provision of services. With the help of these types of contributions, the Black Gold Health Foundation is able to operate more economically. In-Kind receipts are issued at the time of the donation but for those that contribute services “behind the scenes”, we recognize them as Partners in Care. View full description
