Monetary Donations

Some of our most critical services are not covered through third-party reimbursements or government grants – including Patient Advocacy, Wellness, and Integrated Behavioral Health Services. Open Door offers a range of tax-deductible donation options. Explore the many ways to contribute to Open Door below, and help us meet the growing demand for high-quality, affordable health care in your community.

Sustaining Gifts – Commit to Open Door through regular and automatic recurring charges to your credit or debit card at the frequency of your choice. Simply select “recurring gift” when you donate online or tell us you’d like to make a sustaining contribution.

Gifts of Stock – Receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of your stock gift along with an exemption from capital gains tax on shares that you have owned for at least one year.

Planned Gifts – A charitable bequest in your will helps to preserve vibrant, healthy communities for generations to come and creates a lasting legacy for Open Door. Additional planned giving options include:

  • Retirement Plans – Funds from retirement plans such as pension funds, 401ks, 403bs, and IRAs can be donated to Open Door without paying any income and estate taxes.
  • Life Insurance – If you own a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for the protection of your family or for other purposes, you may use it to make a gift to Open Door.
