Ways to Make a Gift

For over 90 years, BHMH has enjoyed the strong support of the local community. Donations help us provide our citizens with the best healthcare possible. Since BHMH is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, many have found that giving not only supports our mission, but also helps with financial planning.

Gifts by Cash, Credit Cards, and EFTs
The simplest way to make a gift is to contribute cash. Checks should be made payable to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Foundation and be sent to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, PO Box 604, Blue Hill, ME 04614. An increasing number of donors are charging their gifts to a credit card.
If you'd like the convenience of making a monthly donation without the hassle of remembering to write a check, we can help you set up an electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your checking or savings account. A blank Direct Payment Authorization Form is available for your use.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Some corporations encourage employees to make charitable contributions by matching their gifts dollar-for-dollar. Sometimes these companies even double or triple your gift.

Gifts by Will or Bequest
Bequests large and small have made a difference in the care BHMH has provided over the years.  By including BHMH in their will, many donors find they are able to make a much larger gift than they'd thought possible. Bequests can help reduce your estate taxes. Check with your financial advisor and/or attorney to see if the following language is appropriate for your situation:

"____ percent of all the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, wherever situated, I give, devise, and bequeath to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Foundation, a Maine nonprofit corporation having its principal administrative offices at 57 Water Street, Blue Hill, ME 04614, to be used for the general unrestricted purposes or (indicate a specific program or purpose, agreed to in advance by BHMH Foundation)."
OR
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Foundation, a Maine nonprofit corporation having its principal administrative offices at 57 Water Street, Blue Hill, ME 04614, $_______ to be used for the general unrestricted purposes or (indicate a specific program or purpose, agreed to in advance by BHMH Foundation)."

Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Please contact BHMH Foundation at 207-374-3411, for information on how to transfer stock.

Gifts of Closely Held Stock
When making a gift of closely held stock, the donor usually avoids capital gains on appreciation of the stock and receives a tax deduction. Often gifts such as this are followed by an offer from the corporation to redeem the stock with its retained earnings. Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Foundation must approve gifts of closely held stock.
