Types of Gifts:
If you would like to make one of these types of donations, please mail it to us at:Boston MedFlight, Robins St., Hangar 1727, Hanscom Air Force Base, Bedford, MA 01730.
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. If it is in honor of someone, please provide his or her name and, if you would like us to send an acknowledgement, their address. The amount of the gift will be kept confidential.
Gifts of Service Appreciation
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. If you are making the donation on behalf of someone other than yourself, please provide his or her name and, if you would like us to send an acknowledgement, include their address. The amount of the gift will be kept confidential.
A meaningful way to honor the memory of friends or loved ones is to make a memorial gift in their name. When making your donation please provide the name of the person you are memorializing and, if you would like us to send an acknowledgement, the name and address of the family. The amount of your gift will be kept private and we will not solicit them.
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. Please call our office at 781-863-2213 and ask for the Development Department to receive stock transfer information.
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 verifying the donation and detailing the value of the gift.
