Ways to Give

Annual Gifts

The simplest way to support University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center is through an annual gift.

Giving in Tribute

You may chose to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, including loved ones, physicians, nurses and friends, and we'll send acknowledgement of these tribute gifts to the honoree or family of the memorialized. You can designate your tribute at the time you make your gift and online.

Gifts of Assets

You may chose to give a gift of assets which will provide you with charitable deductions and also offers additional tax savings. Gifts of assets may include:

  • Stock and securities (including bonds, mutual funds)
  • Real estate
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement plans (including IRAs)
  • Personal property (including artwork, collectibles and jewelry)
  • Business interests

Employer Matching Gift Search

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please contact your human resources department.

Gift Planning

Long-term gift planning may be the best choice if estate, financial and tax-planning are important to consider while you determine the best way to make a gift. With a planned gift, you also are contributing toward improved healthcare for future generations. Planned gifts may include:

  • Gifts under your will
  • Charitable bequests
  • Charitable lead trusts
  • Deferred gifts
  • Life-income gifts
