Gifts of Stock or Securities

You can make a gift of securities worth any amount to support the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. An unrestricted gift will be applied to our Annual Fund. You can also restrict your donation to support a particular program or center.

When making an outright gift of stock, the donor typically transfers the stock to SRH. In order to determine value, Spaulding will use the mean sale price on the day it comes into our possession to the appraised value and will generate the appropriate charitable income tax deduction letter.

SRH then redeems the stock to the corporation or to one of its trustees, and receives a check for the redemption price.

To learn more about making a gift of stock or securities, please contact Steven Patrick, Vice President of Development, at (617) 952-6880 or sapatrick@partners.org

Estate Gifts

If you would like to discuss setting up an endowed fund, life income gifts, or designating Spaulding as a beneficiary in an estate, we can help.

A planned gift is a unique way you can support Spaulding while creating your own legacy. Planned gifts are popular because they can provide valuable tax benefits and/or income for life. Whether you use cash or other assets, such as real estate, artwork, or stock, the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive.

By including us in your estate plans, a planned gift will support Spaulding and at the same time allow you to preserve your existing assets. Individuals who make a planned gift to Spaulding will automatically become members of Spaulding's Legacy Society.  
In addition, estate and life-income gifts with a value of $1,000 or more qualify you for membership in the Spaulding Society.

Types of planned gifts include:

  • Bequests: This is a popular and flexible way to make a legacy gift is to remember Spaulding in your will or living trust. You can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate once all of your other bequests have been fulfilled.
  • Life Insurance: Naming Spaulding as the owner and/or beneficiary of your life insurance policy will grant Spaulding the death benefit and support our mission. In addition, your continued payment of premiums will become tax-deductible gifts to Spaulding.
  • Retirement Plan Assets: Retirement assets, such as a 401k and an IRA, can generate estate and income taxes leaving little for your heirs. By designating Spaulding as a beneficiary you can potentially avoid these taxes while supporting Spaulding at the same time. This gift is simple, unlike the expense of updating your will. The beneficiary designation card on file with the plan administrator determines who receives these assets.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity: A gift annuity is a contract in which you donate assets and we reinvest. We agree to pay a fixed payment to you, a friend, or family member of your choosing for life. What is left of the remainder from the annuity will benefit Spaulding's efforts. This type of gift is particularly attractive because it provides tax advantages, but also is used to supplement retirement income.

There are additional ways to give based on your needs and financial resources. We would be happy to talk to you about these options.  For more information about gift planning, please contact: Anne Haney, Individual Giving Officer, at (617) 952-6880 or ahaney1@partners.org
