Make A Gift/Types of Gifts

But I don't have anything to give...

You would be surprised what you could leave behind. Simple estates with a house, a car, a couple bank accounts, a few investments, life insurance and other possessions can add up to many hundreds of thousands of dollars...that means not only leaving something for your heirs, but leaving behind a legacy for charitable causes. What has been important to you and your family throughout your life? We hope one of the things is the care you received at Fulton County Medical Center.

Look below to learn more about the assets most commonly used to find a gift. Please note this is a guideline to offer you a variety of options in which to support FCMC Foundation. Please see your CPA, attorney or financial advisor for suggestions on how best to invest your money and which gift would be most beneficial to your family.

Gifts of Cash:

Gifts of cash are the most common form of contribution to FCMC Foundation. Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check, authorizing a charge on your credit card, or enrolling in our electronic find transfer (EFT) program. Click here to Donate now or make a monthly gift of your choice through our popular uCare program.


The most popular choice among our donors. A bequest can be made through various estate vehicles such as a will, a trust, retirement plan benefits, or insurance policies. By making a bequest to FCMC Foundation, you may secure an estate tax charitable deduction for the value of your gift.

Appreciated Securities:

Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Donating appreciated securities is a simple gift and can offer you a greater tax benefit than an equivalent in cash.

Gifts of Real Estate:

Using real estate, such as your house or commercial property to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

Gifts that Pay an Income:

A gift that pays income provides benefits to both giver and receiver. Gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and pooled income funds can provide donors or their designated beneficiary with an income stream, significant tax savings and the satisfaction of providing FCMC Foundation with vital long-term resources.

Gifts of Life Insurance:

Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support our work. By making FCMC Foundation the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.

Supporting health and wellness

Is a monthly-giving program that is easy for you to control:

"I was so excited when I heard the Fulton County Medical Center was starting the uCare Program. Greg and I want to donate each year, and the uCare Program makes it so covenient. We set the monthly amount that we wanted to donate, and it comes directly out of our bank account each month. We were actually able to increase our donation as it is spread out over the whole year and not all at one time. We would encourage other donors to use this convenient program to make donating to the Fulton County Medical Center easier."
