Planned Giving

What Planned Giving is and what it can do for you.

Planned giving is a type of charitable giving that allows you to express your personal values by integrating your charitable, family and financial goals.  No other form of giving does that better than a planned gift that can memorialize you and your loved ones after death. You can leave a lasting mark through a gift that leaves the world a better place with a simple bequest. 

Horizon Health Foundation welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements. 

These arrangements can:

  • Provide for you or your loved ones
  • Entitle you to charitable income and/or gift or estate tax deductions
  • Enable you to leave a legacy for your community healthcare

Why give a planned gift?

  • You believe in our mission and want to change or save lives in our South Dakota healthcare communities
  • Giving feels good. It is fun and fulfilling to give to help those in need.
  • You appreciate healthcare and understand the importance of having local healthcare for generations to come.
  • A bequest allows you to honor or memorialize a loved one.

Bequests
Property or money that a person promises in their will to give to another person or organization after they die.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Trust that provides for a specified distribution, at least annually, to at least one non-charitable income recipient for a period specified in the trust instrument, with the remainder interest paid to at least one charitable beneficiary.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A contract between a donor and a charity, whereby the donor transfers cash or property to the charity in exchange for a partial tax deduction and a lifetime stream of annual income from the charity. When the donor dies, the charity keeps the gift.

The donor irrevocably deeds a personal residence or farm to your charity, but retains the right to live in it for the rest of his/her life, a term of years, or a combination of the two. The term is most commonly measured by the life of the donor or of the donor and the donor's spouse.
Endowed Funds
An endowment fund is an investment fund established by a foundation that makes consistent withdrawals from invested capital. The capital in endowment funds is generally utilized for specific needs or to further the foundation’s operating process.
Life Insurance
The donor chooses to name a charity as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
