Everyday, residents at Miravida Living are given opportunities to be inspired, grow, thrive, and create a journey which reflects their individual uniqueness. A simple walk across campus would show elders playing cards, enjoying sing-a-longs, visiting a neighbor, relaxing in the butterfly garden, and laughing with a team member. These meaningful moments are abundant because of generosity like yours.
We are committed to providing a life of possibilities for every resident and as a non-profit organization, we welcome residents unable to fully pay for their care. It is because of your gifts that about 75% or our residents enjoy experiences like art classes and lunch outings they may have otherwise missed.
Know we are honored by your past generosity. Your gifts reflect the compassion you have for those we serve and those that serve them. Your support provides needed encouragement and energy for our important work. Please consider a donation and give generously.
Together, we provide a supportive community for people as they grow older.
The Miravida Living Foundation is the gateway to delivering a life of opportunities filled with joy and wonder to every elder. This year the Foundation funds will focus on;
Your generosity touches the lives of those we serve and we thank you for making a difference.
Your support of the Miravida Living Foundation secures our 2022 mission and ministry.
To determine what gift is best for you and the people you want to benefit, we recommend you seek counsel with an attorney specializing in estate planning. Our Miravida Living Foundation director is available to assist you and your attorney with planning.
Miravida Living can immediately use long-term appreciated securities to support our programs, and you receive an immediate tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes.
Please consult your attorney for more information about the benefits and regulations surrounding gifts of stocks and securities. When you decide to donate, please notify the Miravida Living Foundation by mailing or faxing a copy of your transfer instructions. This is how we will identify your generous gift when it arrives.
Gifts of cash, securities, real estate and tangible personal property through your estate support our nonprofit programs and services. We are incredibly grateful for all of the following:
You can designate bequests for current use or to establish an endowed fund for specific purposes. We recommend your specific purpose bequest be stated as a preference because the needs of people living in our community change over time. This ensures your gift will support our work as we continue to innovate and excel.
Please consult with your attorney for more information about donating through wills and bequests.
You are able to support yourself, your spouse and our elders through a deferred gift to the Miravida Living Foundation. This type of donation can function as an income and a charitable income tax deduction.
Gift options include charitable gift annuity, deferred gift annuity and charitable remainder trusts. All require a minimum donation level and can benefit any part of the Miravida community. Please consult with your attorney to determine which option best fits your needs and intentions.
Donating personal property to our community is a wonderful way to support our needs and values. Gifts often include antiques, works of art, furniture, jewelry, rare books and valuable collections. We cannot assign value to your donations, according to IRS regulations. You must establish a value for the gift and provide a qualified appraisal for tangible property valued at more than $5,000. You must also complete IRS Form 8282 for items worth more than $500. Please mail the completed form to the Miravida Living Foundation.
Many employers are incredibly generous and will double or triple the amount you donate to us. This truly magnifies the scope and impact of our work. To participate in gift matching, fill out your employer’s gift matching form and send it to the Miravida Living Foundation with your donation, making sure to comply with your company’s guidelines. Thrivent Financial’s Thrivent Choice Program is an excellent example of an employer match program. We are grateful for their continued support.
Honor a loved one’s life path with a tribute gift. Many elders and their families support our community by naming Miravida Living as a recipient for memorials or honorariums.
Memorials keep the memory of a loved one alive, while honorariums are like community-wide celebrations of anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions. Memorial gifts of $1,000 or more are listed on our donor recognition display in Bethel Home. When giving an honorarium, we send a greeting to the person the donation honors to mark the special occasion.
