Gifts Given in Honor or Memory

Gifts have special meaning when offered “in memory of” or “in honor of” those who have touched our lives. Consider paying tribute to someone special during the holidays, on a birthday or anniversary, or in recognition of any milestone. Be sure to provide your gift recipient’s name and contact information so that we can notify them of your thoughtfulness! Click here to give a gift in honor or memory of someone special!

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match (either dollar-for-dollar or a certain percentage 0f) their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations. Please check with your company’s human resources office and request a matching gift form. Simply complete the form and forward it to HB (either with your contribution or shortly after making a gift online.) HB will handle the rest!

Deferred Gifts

Gifts made as part of your estate plans are accepted by HB. Whether you add a codicil to your will or establish a charitable gift annuity―these gifts have a significant and lasting impact by helping HB to plan for the future. Please contact Heather Turbyne-Pollard at (804) 358-6343 ext. 118 for information about these additional ways to support Health Brigade and the people it serves.

Sample of bequest language for a codicil to add to your will:

“I, [NAME], of [CITY/COUNTY of STATE, ZIP CODE], give, devise and bequeath to Health Brigade, Inc. [WRITTEN DOLLAR AMOUNT or PERCENTAGE OF THE ESTATE or DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Charitable Gift Annuities

Establishing a charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a wonderful way to secure steady payments for yourself while providing benefits for charitable organizations. Although most people think of insurance companies when they think of annuities, Health Brigade also offers annuities. They are called “charitable gift annuities” because, as a charitable organization, we make payments to you for your lifetime. A CGA is a gift vehicle that pays you a predetermined amount each year for the rest of your life. (Your age is factored into the calculation to determine your payment—generally, the older the donor, the higher the payment.) The gift can be established with cash, securities or other property, and in return you receive fixed payments quarterly or annually.
