Giving comes in many ways. Your donations are vital in helping us meet our mission of providing high quality, affordable, primary preventive health care to all regardless of social or economic status in a fiscally responsible manner.
We are very grateful for the long standing support we have received from our friends in the community. With the help of your contributions, we can continue to provide the highest level of health care possible - and all so close to home. Sponsoring events and serving on our Board of Directors are also invaluable ways to give to ACHS and key to the success of our organization.
Ways to make a gift...
Secure online giving by credit card. (Coming soon to www.ammonoosuc.org.)
Gifts can be made by cash, check or credit card and mailed to the Community Relations Director at Ammonoosuc Community Health Services, 25 Mount Eustis Road, Littleton, NH 03561.
The benefits of a gift of securities are two-fold. The full market value of the asset is usually tax deductible and capital gains taxes may be avoided.
Tangible Assets, Real Estate, Personal Property
Assets of real estate and other personal property can be contributed as provided by law.
Bequest (through your will)
A bequest is a gift that comes to ACHS upon your death. It is flexible in that your will can be augmented or revised at any time during your lifetime. A bequest is fully deductible for estate tax purposes. A bequest can take many forms:
- A specific dollar amount
- Specified assets, such as securities, real estate or tangible personal property
- Retirement Account Assets
- A residuary bequest in which ACHS receives all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate
- A contingent bequest in which ACHS becomes the beneficiary in the event the named beneficiary is unable to accept the bequest
Programs you can donate to...
Your support will go to where it is most needed. Unrestricted giving allows ACHS the greatest flexibility in directing funds to areas with the greatest need.
A gift can be designated towards a specific program or area that has special interest or meaning for the donor.
- Behavioral Health
- Oral Health
- Hospice & Palliative Care
Monies will be directed towards capital equipment or building needs.
Memorial or Honorarium Gifts
Gifts can be made in memory or in honor of an individual. ACHS will notify the appropriate parties of these types of gifts.
Proceeds from this great family friendly annual event are directed towards funding uninsured and under insured patient care. Monetary sponsorships, raffle and food donations, and participant registration contribute to the success of this event.
Events take place through the course of the year which provide opportunities to support ACHS.
