What is an outright gift of cash?

An outright gift of cash is when you transfer funds to Floyd Healthcare Foundation and get nothing of financial value in return. The most common way for donors to make an outright gift is to write a check payable to Floyd Healthcare Foundation.

Gift provides immediate support

Unlike some other gift arrangements, your outright gift will provide resources that Floyd Healthcare Foundation can put to immediate use. If you prefer to restrict our use of your gift in any way, please contact us so that we can be sure that we can carry out your wishes.   

Maximum tax savings

You may deduct the full amount of your donation up to 60% of your adjusted gross income, providing tax savings if you itemize. You may carry forward all of your unused deduction for up to five additional years.
