Donate Securities or Other Assets
Giving stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can often provide greater tax benefits than a cash gift of equal value, especially if they were purchased on a low cost basis. It may be possible that will avoid capital gains tax – money that you would pay if you sold the property. Contact the foundation at (616) 252-5000 for more information.

Did you know that Metro Health accepts gifts of artwork? As a matter of fact, the majority of the pieces throughout our organization have been donated. For details, please see our Artwork Acceptance Policy or contact Laurie Popma at (616) 252-5003.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to the Metro Health Hospital Foundation may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees or spouses.
