Is my contribution tax deductible?

  • Yes.  Donations to The Health Trust are tax exempt under the IRS Section 501(c) 3.  As long as you itemize your deductions on your federal income tax return, your donation—including any amount you include to offset processing fees—is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services are provided in return for charitable contributions. Our Federal Tax ID number is 94-6050231.

Can I donate online?

  • The Health Trust has partnered with Network for Good to securely process your online credit card donation.  Your credit card statement will show Network for Good as the recipient of your donation. Network for Good, in technical terms, is treated as a “donor-advised fund,” a 501(c)(3) organization that collects contributions from donors and distributes such contributions to 501(c)(3) organizations in good standing with the IRS recommended by you, the donor. Network for Good processes the resulting credit card charge, issues a receipt as soon as you complete your donation, then re-grants your gift to the charity you designated. This process meets IRS criteria for tax-deductible contributions.

If Network for Good is processing my donation, how can I be sure that my donation will go to The Health Trust?

Network for Good will never refuse to distribute a contribution to a valid public charity recognized by the IRS.

Can I donate to a specific program?

Yes.  At the bottom of the donation form you will be given the option to designate your gift to a specific program of The Health Trust.

Is my donation and personal information secure?

  • We respect your privacy; we do not share any information about our donors with other organizations.
  • Network for Good uses industry-leading 256-bit encryption Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology via GeoTrust®  to protect your information and provide a safe and secure environment for online donors.   

Can I donate by mail?

Yes! Send your tax-deductible donation and your contact information to:

The Health Trust
3180 Newberry Drive
Suite 200
San Jose, CA 95118

How can I honor someone special?

To make a tribute gift, simply fill in the dedication field on the donation form and provide the information for the person honored or remembered. Please provide their contact info if you would like an acknowledgement letter sent to them. We will take care of the rest.

What are The Health Trust finances?

The Health Trust was established in 1996 to manage, in perpetuity, the proceeds from the sale of four nonprofit hospitals and to distribute assets to improve the health and wellness of the community. Since that time, we have greatly increased our assets value from the original $54 million and have returned back to the community over $100 million of community benefit through our grantmaking and program services.
