Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to celebrate a special event, holiday, or milestone, or to honor a healthcare provider or member of the Boston MedFlight crew.
Were you, a family member or friend a recipient of our services? Many of our patients, their families and friends show their appreciation by making a donation.
A meaningful way to honor the memory of friends or loved ones is to make a memorial gift in their name.
Many employers match employee contributions. Sometimes this can double or even triple your gift! Check with your company’s human resources or payroll department to see whether it offers a matching gift program.
Donating securities and stock is a smart way to give and it’s easier than you might think. Stock gifts often offer several advantages over cash, including reduced or eliminated capital gains on stocks that have increased in value.
Another easy, cashless and tax-friendly way to make a donation is with an in-kind gift. Popular examples are sports tickets and memorabilia, a week in a ski or beach condo, or professional services. Donors of in-kind gifts receive a receipt for tax purposes.
