Why make a donation?
Allegan County Medical Care Community is a not-for-profit government agency. As such, we are required to accept anyone needing our services, regardless of their ability to pay.

Memorials and Honor Gifts
Losing a loved one can be hard. Remembering someone special can be healing and very affirming for family, friends and loved ones. A memorial donation can be a powerful expression of giving while also remembering someone who has touched our lives. Honor gifts may be in recognition of a birthday,  anniversary, or another important occasion.  If you’d like to help ACMCC through “Memorial and Honor Gifts”,  contact Sharice Purman, Development Director via e-mail or call (269) 686-4607.

Making a Bequest Through Your Will
When you remember Allegan County Medical Care Community in your will, you may reduce your estate taxes while supporting your community. You may give a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. You may also give a remainder of your estate after bequests to friends and family.

Charitable IRA Rollover
Many retirees do not itemize their deductions on their tax returns (i.e. take the standard deduction). Donors who don’t itemize their deductions under the current law and who are over 70 1/2 may find a charitable IRA rollover very advantageous. Many retirees have been particularly motivated to apply their charitable IRA gifts to satisfy their mandatory minimum distribution.

Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable gift annuities offer two key benefits: simplicity and a reliable income. When you establish a charitable gift annuity, Allegan County Medical Care Community will work with you, your estate adviser, and the Allegan County Community Foundation to enable you or someone you designate to receive a life income in exchange for your charitable gift. The annuity rate depends on the annuitant’s age. The older you are, the high the rate.

Allegan County Medical Care Community Endowment Fund

Henry & Bette Boerman Endowment Fund
