A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that gives you the most favorable tax benefits and the ability to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, you can recommend grants from your DAF to Equitas Health with DAF Direct(as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

How does it work?

Set up your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible gift to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program. Tell the DAF how you would like to invest your gift (any investment growth is tax-free). Recommend grants to the charities you support with the option to remain anonymous.

Please talk to your personal financial planner to see if supporting Equitas Health with a DAF is the right choice for you, or call our Development office at (614) 340-6721 to learn more.

Your gift helps to keep the gateway to good health open for anyone seeking quality, affirming, and affordable healthcare.

Through your investment, Equitas Health will continue to be an innovative leader in the community by offering a welcoming healthcare home to those in need. By giving to Equitas Health, you and your advisors can be sure that your philanthropy maximizes the benefits of available tax incentives and creates a lasting and impactful legacy.

Leave a legacy by including Equitas Health in your will.

Your assets stay in your control during your lifetime, and you can alter your gift to address any change in circumstances

Make gifts from a charitable remainder trust, retirement plan, or life insurance policy.

Naming Equitas Health as the beneficiary of a trust, retirement plan, or life insurance policy will reduce the size of your taxable estate and avoid income tax on those funds.

Take advantage of the IRA Rollover charitable deduction.

This is one of the most tax effective ways to make a long-term gift. Your donation can count against your minimum required distribution.

If you need to know more about donor advised funds or planned giving options, we work closely with the professionals at The Columbus Foundation and The Dayton Foundation.

For more information, we would be happy to put a member of their Donor Services team in touch with you, or feel free to visitcolumbusfoundation.org or daytonfoundation.org.

Endowments exist in perpetuity. They are an excellent way to honor the memory of a loved one or living person. Your gift will have a significant impact on the strength of Equitas Health’s future by funding a source of ongoing income.

An endowment fund has been established at the Columbus Foundation to benefit Equitas Health. The Columbus Foundation will invest your gift to endowment, and the income will provide general operating support where the need is greatest.

A planned gift to the fund will create a living legacy for you and your family. It will touch all of Equitas Health, including critical life-sustaining services and prevention, education, and advocacy programs.

We welcome gifts of any amount. Every gift makes a difference.

We are forever grateful for all types of gifts. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your personal advisors to determine which planned giving arrangements work best for you. All inquiries and communications are strictly confidential and without obligation.
