Consistent with the limitations of the Health Foundation of Greater Massillon, donations can be made to the foundation in any amount, any time, to existing and new funds.
1) Gifts in memory or to honor an individual will be acknowledged to the honoree or his/her family.
2) All donations are tax-deductible, and all donors will receive a letter of acknowledgement for their records.
A Planned Giving Program targets unconventional donor assets for deferred donations to charities. Planning Giving usually increases the donor's spendable income and increases their eventual gift to the charity.
The Health Foundation of Greater Massillon can and will assist area charities in setting up and maintaining their Planned Giving Program. We will assist donors who wish to participate in this program. Trusts, pooled income funds, retirement assets, bequests, insurance assets and life insurance gifts are possible through the foundation.
