Planned Giving

When you give to the Centegra Health System Foundation, you ensure that high-quality, compassionate care will be given to the residents of greater McHenry County. You will support the Centegra mission to inspire and engage our community in their health and wellness. Gifts may be designated to specific departments or programs at Centegra Health System. Thank you for your consideration in supporting the Centegra Foundation.

What to Give

Planned gifts can be made in a variety of ways. A few options when making a planned gift include:

  • Securities, including your stocks or bonds – by making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
  • Real estate property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) – if you own appreciated property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift.
  • Retirement assets – a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan.
  • Life insurance policy – if your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making it a planned gift.
