    Planned giving, stocks and property

    Planned giving provides several options and opportunities to support Wellmont Health System in your financial and estate plans, with a commitment made now that defers benefits to Wellmont until a future date.

    Gifts of appreciated property can be attractive as a way to avoid capital gains tax on stocks or other property that has grown in value. These gifts can be made through a transfer of ownership to Wellmont Foundation prior to their sale, and the foundation can assist in arranging a broker-to-broker transfer.

    For brokerage account information, please call Wellmont Foundation at (423) 230-8554.

    Matching gifts

    Many employers have matching gifts programs through which your generosity to Wellmont Foundation, a non-profit organization, can be multiplied.

    If your gift is eligible for a matching donation, please note that information with your gift or contact us at (423) 230-8550.

    Designating your gift

    When making a donation to Wellmont Foundation, you may state the purpose for which your gift should be used.

    Please consider broad categories such as education, heart care, cancer care, hospice care, capital projects or hospitals to help ensure your desired purpose can be fulfilled.

    Use of gifts

    The foundation is fortunate to have a long history of generous contributors who helped build an operating endowment fund sufficient to earn enough income to meet operational expenses.

    That means every penny of your outright gift will be applied toward the purpose you intend.

    Event-related transactions are subject to reductions for accounting purposes.

    Gift receipts

    Wellmont Foundation will send a letter to confirm your gift amount for gift and tax purposes.
