Ways to give

Gifts of cash

The majority of gifts are checks made payable to Capital Region Medical Foundation.

Gifts of stocks or other securities

Stocks or other investments that have grown in value and that you have held for more than one year can be a way of making a substantial gift to the foundation and at the same time receiving a tax advantage.

Planned gifts

Including Capital Region Medical Foundation in your estate plan is an excellent way to carry out your charitable objectives and desires.
