CHI Oakes Hospital #GivingTuesday Results

On November 28th, 2018 CHI Oakes Hospital participated in #GivingTuesday, with funds raised going toward upgrading comforts for patient rooms. This year the hospital raised $2000 to go towards this effort. We could not do this without the generosity of our patients, patients families, and community.

#Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

CHI Oakes Hospital realizes that when a patient is comfortable, and has a warm, inviting room that allows for visitors, they will heal faster. With that in mind, they will be raising funds this #GivingTuesday to buy new more comfortable chairs for patients to be up and out of their beds and larger TVs so patients who are here longer can enjoy their favorite movies or programs as they recover. CHI Oakes Hospital is proud to be able to provide a place for community members to recover and heal close to home, without having to travel to larger cities.

Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City - #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.

“We are incredibly inspired by the way the #GivingTuesday community has embraced this concept for a worldwide movement,” said Henry Timms, founder of #Giving Tuesday and Executive Director of 92Y. “As we prepare for November 27, we’re energized and encouraged by the community’s generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal.”

CHI Oakes Hospital Foundation is gearing up for their 3rd Annual Casino Night on March 2, 2018.

North Dakota Taxpayers may receive a 40% tax credit for a gift to CHI Oakes Hospital’s Future Endowment Fund

North Dakota legislators continue to move the state to the cutting edge of state charitable income tax credits with legislation providing tax credits for gifts made to qualified North Dakota endowments.

A qualified endowment is defined as an “irrevocable fund held by a North Dakota incorporated or established organization that is a qualified non-profit organization; or a bank or trust company holding the fund on behalf of a qualified non-profit organization.”

An endowment is a fund held by a tax-exempt organization where the principal of the fund is not wholly expendable. Only the interest and appreciation earned in an endowment fund can be used for current operations.

An individual may receive a 40% tax credit for contributions of $5,000 or more (lump sum or aggregate in one year) to a qualified North Dakota endowment. If a donor is in a 28% federal tax bracket, the tax benefit may look like this:

Gift amount of $5,000 – $1,400 Federal Tax Deduction – $2,000 ND State Income Tax Credit = $1,600 Net Cost*
