Don’t just make a donation—make a difference
Offering giving opportunities that support older adults.
Our goal is to help connect your passions and your gifts to make a meaningful impact that brings joy to you and to those we serve. Remember, your gifts are used for your intended purpose. As a nonprofit organization with 501 (c) (3) status, the UMRC & Porter Hills Foundation gratefully accepts:
- Annual Gifts- Monetary gifts made by check or credit card by mail, phone, or click here to make a secure online donation.
- Matching Gifts- If you work for a company that matches gifts, your contribution could be doubled or even tripled to provide even more assistance for the older adults we serve.
- Tribute Gift- A gift to the UMRC & Porter Hills Foundation is a special way to remember or honor loved ones, especially for those who have had a connection with UMRC & Porter Hills, while supporting the needs of older adults.
- Stock Gifts- Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. Plus, you may specify the area you would like the proceeds to support (such as Benevolent Care or Capital Improvements) or contribute them to our Unrestricted Fund to be used where needed most. The Foundation benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that may be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash.
