                   Jamil Shriner’s     Donor Relations


                            100 Million Dollar Club

For a one-time donation you can become a member of the "100 Million Dollar Club." Donors will receive a special certificate recognizing their contribution. You may also become a member by adding a provision to your existing will to make a bequest of $100 or more to the Hospital or by having already made provisions for a bequest in your existing will.  

All such donations should be coordinated through Jamil Shrine 803 772-9380 
                           Outright Gifts to Shriner’s Hospitals

To make a donation to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, you can send a check, made payable to "Shriner’s Hospitals for Children," to any of the 22 Shriner’s Hospitals (see directory of individual hospitals) or to the Office of Development, International Shrine Headquarters, 2900 Rocky Point Dr., Tampa, FL 33607-1460.

If you wish to make a donation in honor of or in memory of another individual, simply include a note indicating the person's name, and include the name and address of the person who should receive the acknowledgement.

                                Wills and Bequests

A bequest through your will ensures that the work of helping children in need through Shriner’s Hospitals for Children will be supported in your name after your death. Designations of bequests should clearly indicate Shriner’s Hospitals for Children. Bequests under wills may reduce estate taxes.

                                            Gifts of Securities

Gifts of securities are welcomed in our mission of helping children in need. All donations used to fund the operation of our 22 pediatric orthopedic hospitals and burns institutes.
Gifts of appreciated securities may result in: 1) capital gains tax savings, 2) creating an income tax deduction, and 3) removing this asset from your estate for estate tax purposes. Gifts of appreciated securities have a potential federal income tax deduction of up to 30% of the adjusted gross income of the donor with a 5-year carry forward of any excess.

                                  Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of real estate are welcomed in our mission of helping children in need.

All qualified real estate may be deeded outright to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, or if it is a residence or farm, may be given with a retained life interest. The value of the outright gift of property or the remainder interest being contributed to Shriner’s Hospitals may be deductible as a charitable contribution.

                                Life Estate Agreements

A personal residence or farm may be given as a charitable gift, with the donor retaining the right to use the property for life. This is known as a Life Estate Agreement. The life estate may be retained for one or more lives, or for a term of years.

                                             Gifts of Life Insurance

Shriner’s Hospitals for Children can be designated as the irrevocable beneficiary and owner of an insurance policy. The hospitals would thus be assured of a definite sum in the future. The cash surrender value and annual premium may be deducted as a charitable contribution.

                                   Pooled Income Fund

Persons contributing $5,000 or more may participate in the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children Pooled Income Fund. Under this agreement, donors or their designees will receive annual income from their contribution during their lifetime. A portion of the contribution may be deducted as a charitable donation.
