Every gift matters. Your annual gift today is an investment not only in Doylestown Health, but in the wellbeing of our community. With your support, Doylestown Health will remain an independent leader in healthcare for generations to come.
Tax-deductible gifts can be designated to Doylestown Hospital, which supports the areas of greatest need for the hospital, or you can choose a service line or specific program that is meaningful to you. Gifts can also support the Second Century Fund, which benefits the top priorities of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health. No matter how you decide to designate your annual contribution, your generosity will make a meaningful difference in the lives of countless patients and families. Thank you!

“At the beginning of this year, none of us could have imagined how life would change. But even as the pandemic reached Bucks County and Doylestown Hospital, I was utterly unprepared for how it would impact my life and my family, and how much more we would come to appreciate Doylestown Health as an independent healthcare system. I hope you will show your own appreciation by making a gift today so that our hospital can remain an independent leader in healthcare for generations to come.”
The CARES Act expands your income tax deduction for cash gifts in 2020. If you no longer itemize your personal deductions, the recent CARES Act allows you to deduct up to $300 in cash donations to charity on your 2020 tax return, despite taking the standard deduction. Separately, if you itemize your deductions, you are now eligible to deduct up to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for cash contributions in 2020. This raises the prior deduction cap of 65% of AGI for cash contributions.
You can make a gift directly from your IRA to Doylestown Health without having to recognize the transfer as income. To qualify, you must be at least age 70½ and the transfer must be made by your plan provider directly to Doylestown Health Foundation. The distribution is tax-free and counts toward your required minimum distribution. You can donate any amount from your IRA up to $100,000 annually, all of which will help Doylestown Health prepare for its second century of care.
Long-term appreciated securities, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can be donated directly to Doylestown Health Foundation. You will receive a charitable tax deduction for the gift’s fair market value if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have owned the securities for at least one year. You will also avoid federal and state tax on the capital gains. Gifts of appreciated securities allow you to make a larger gift to Doylestown Health with assets you bought at a lower cost.
