Stock Contribution Information

Thank you for your interest in making a charitable contribution to the HCA Hope Fund via Stock Transfer.

Donations made to the Hope Fund are helping families every day as a grant provides a glimpse of hope when faced with financial crisis due to an illness, disaster, or other circumstance they didn’t expect to face. In addition to helping families in need, there are other benefits to donating stock. When donating stock you are eligible to receive an income tax deduction based on the current market value of the stock, and you also may avoid paying capital gains tax on any appreciation in the stock if you have held the stock for more than one year and certain other requirements are met.  Please consult with your tax advisor.
