Workplace Giving/Employer Matching Gifts

An alternative option for many people to leverage their individual giving for a greater impact is through employee gift matching programs. Many corporations have employee gift matching programs and they will match your donation(s) to an accredited charitable organization up to a specific dollar amount. It is an easy way to double or sometimes even triple the impact of your personal contribution to Tiburcio Vasquez HealthCenter, Inc.

Here is how to make an employee gift-matching program: check with your human resources or community affairs departments to find out whether your company has a gift-matching policy. If it does, your employer will usually provide a form for you to fill out and send to us with your donation. We will verify your gift and return the form to your company, which will then issue a matching gift contribution directly to TVHC.

Please send all gifts and forms to:

Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc.
C/o Business Development Dept.,
22331 Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA 94541
Phone: 510-471-5907 ext. 3343

Thank you in advance for checking to see if this is an option with your employer!

Bequests

You can leave your legacy at Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center,Inc. by including a gift to TVHC in your will. A bequest is one of the simplest ways to make a significant impact on the future of Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. and our patients.

Types of Bequests:

Unrestricted Bequest

This is a gift for the general needs of Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. and the patients we serve. A gift of this nature enables our Executive Management Team to make the most appropriate choice for the use of funds.

Restricted Bequest

This kind of gift allows you to determine the impact your generosity will have on Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. For example, you may desire to fund a particular program, a program or service line, a capital expense project, or to purchase a piece of medical equipment. Please contact the Business Development Department at TVHC, if you wish to make a restricted bequest so that we may have a clear understanding of your intentions.

Endowed Bequest

These gifts are most often used to support a particular program or service line of Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc., such as Pediatric Dental Care or (another example) among others. The funds generated by your gift will be invested and distributed according to the policies and procedures approved by the Board of Directors.

Memorial or Honorary Bequest

Gifts can be made in honor or in memory of a family member, a friend, or a respected staff member or provider at Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. Simply select this designation when making your gift and enter the name of the honoree in the space provided and we will make sure that your request is fulfilled.

Gifts of Life Insurance and Pension Benefits

A gift of life insurance allows someone to contribute a previously acquired policy that they may no longer need to its original purpose, and realize tax benefits. TVHC may also be named beneficiary of a life insurance policy, company pension plan or a private plan, such as an IRA, Keogh, or tax-sheltered annuity. Gifting of pension plan benefits can help you avoid both income and estate taxes.

Other Options

There are other more complex ways to make a planned gift to TVHC. Among them are Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, and Retained Life Estates.

However you choose to leave your legacy, it is important that you consult an estate planning professional to maximize the tax benefits available to you.

On behalf of our current and future patients, we thank you for your support!
