ANNUAL GIVING: The Campaign For Heritage

Annual gifts to Heritage Day Health Centers are used to bridge the gap between government reimbursements and the actual cost of client care. As this shortfall in operational funding grows each year, it is through commitment and generosity of donors who give annually that we are able to provide care to our communities' most deserving citizens. Although any level of financial commitment to support our daily operations is appreciated, you may be interested to know the value of specific gifts.

  • $ 25 provides one day of transportation to and from HDHC.
  • $110 provides adult day services for two days.
  • $275 provides one week of adult day services
  • $500 provides one week of care, transportation, meals, snacks, baths and therapies.

The Bonnie Walson Memorial Fund
Bonnie Walson

Honoring the life's work of Bonnie Walson is no easy task. Bonnie was larger than life and the measure of her contribution to our community places her in a very elite group.

It is difficult for those who knew Bonnie to imagine her equal in vision, tenacity, or commitment. Through strength of will, Bonnie laid the foundation for what Heritage Day Health Centers is today. She remains loved and revered by everyone she touched.

To honor Bonnie's legacy and to inaugurate the merger of Heritage Day Health Centers and National Church Residences, the boards of trustees of both organizations, by unanimous consent, agreed to establish a philanthropic fund in Bonnie's name. The Bonnie Walson Memorial Fund at The Columbus Foundation, endowed by National Church Residences is established to preserve Bonnie's memory in perpetuity. The fund is designed such that all earnings will be distributed to Heritage Day Health Centers in furtherance of Bonnie's vision.

Contributions to The Bonnie Walson Memorial Fund may be made online at Columbus Foundation or by contacting the Columbus Foundation at 614-251-4000.


THE REV. PHALE D. HALE FUND FOR ALZHEIMER'S CARE

This fund was created to honor and celebrate Rev. Phale D. Hale, a highly respected community leader and civil rights activist. In his more than 40 years of service to the Central Ohio community as pastor of Union Grove Baptist Church, a State Representative, president of the Columbus Chapter of the NAACP, and a member of the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, among many other affiliations, he has continually exemplified values that Heritage Day Health Centers hold dear: integrity, respect, and a caring concern for fellow citizens.

Mrs. Cleo Hale has played an integral role in helping her husband to achieve great milestones in his career. Now by his side as caregiver, their response to the challenges of aging and living independently are a model of integrity and in self-determination for us all. In their honor we have established "The Rev. Phale D. Hale Fund for Alzheimer's Care" that will provide a living legacy. The fund will focus on the following areas: (1) Providing scholarships to subsidize Heritage Day Health Centers clients in need and (2) Outreach and support for family and professional caregivers.

PLANNED GIVING ~ LEAVE A LEGACY

A planned gift is any charitable contribution given by an individual donor, immediately or at a later date, that takes into account that individuals' financial and estate planning and their tax situation. The help of a professional advisor is most important in this process. Planned gifts may be as simple as an outright gift of cash or as sophisticated as a foundation or charitable trust; with many giving options in between.

Planned gifts can include cash, securities, including mutual funds, IRA assets, life insurance policies and even tangible assets such as land or other property.

There are tax benefits afforded to those contributing to charitable gift accounts which are eligible for income tax deductions and removed from donors' taxable estates. Charitable gift accounts are flexible and tax efficient ways to give and can also compliment more complex vehicles such as private foundations or trusts. When appreciated assets such as stock, which may increase in value, are given to charities, donors avoid capitol gains taxes and may be eligible for income tax deductions.
