    Named Scholarships

    Ensuring that there will always be well-trained, highly-qualified healthcare professionals who serve the needs of our communities is a priority. Your investment in a student aspiring to enter a healthcare career, will recognize and encourage excellence and will provide an indelible link to your name (or that of a loved one) with assisting students in achieving their educational goals. You will be helping to ensure the future of healthcare. You can designate how the scholarship recipients are to be chosen so that your interests and values are perpetuated.

    Other Naming Opportunities

  • Stocks & other Securities

    Appreciated stocks, bonds, closely-held stock in family businesses, or other property may be given to Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation. The value of a gift of stock is determined by the average market value of the stock on the date the gift is made. To identify the best procedure for making such a gift, contact your broker and our Foundation.

  • Life Insurance Gifts

    You may assign Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation as a beneficiary, co-beneficiary, or a secondary, remainder, or residual beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Annual dividends also may be assigned to the Foundation. When Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation is named as owner of a policy and/or the irrevocable beneficiary, the cash value of the policy may be deducted on your income tax return. The premiums paid thereafter also are income tax deductible.

  • Charitable Remainder Unitrusts

    The charitable remainder unitrust is a gift that pays you income for life and can also provide income for a successor beneficiary for life. It provides an immediate tax deduction---freedom from estate taxes. A charitable remainder unitrust provides for a fixed percentage of return of not less than 5 percent of the value of the trust's assets valued annually. Because of that annual valuation, the payout to the donor will rise and fall with the economy. The rate of return is agreed upon at the time the unitrust is established, however, the higher the rate of return the smaller the charitable deduction. Additional contributions can be made at anytime. When the beneficial interest in the unitrust ends, the principal goes to Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation to accomplish your specified goals.

  • Real Estate / Personal Property

    Real estate may provide a convenient way to support Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation. You may contribute real estate as a deferred or outright gift. For example, with a life estate agreement, a donor can make a gift of a home or farm while retaining life tenancy. Gifts of real estate should include a letter of transmittal with instruction for use of the gift. Jewelry, works of art, rare books, manuscripts, antiques, and similar property can be contributed. A letter of transmittal, which specifies any requirements regarding use of the gift, should accompany gifts of property. An independent appraisal is needed should you choose this kind of support.
