Founders Society

Personal Campaign Gifts of $10,000 or More

Within every strong and vibrant community, there is a special group of benefactors who help to make the world a better place through their generosity and commitment to serving others. The Founders Society honors those special individuals who have distinguished themselves through a significant investment in the future of WellStar West Georgia Medical Center.

The partnership formed between these generous contributors and the West Georgia Health Foundation will impact countless lives in the years ahead. These gifts help to ensure that our friends and neighbors in this community continue to have access to an exceptional level of medical care. Membership in the Founders Society is available through a gift of $10,000 or more to the West Georgia Health Foundation over a three-year period.

A gift of Appreciated Securities held for more than one year can avoid capital gains taxes, allow a deduction of up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income and carry forward for five additional years. For Depreciated Securities, selling the assets, then donating the proceeds to charity allows you to claim the loss and a deduction. To notify us of a stock transfer or request DTC instructions, please contact our office at (706) 845-3029.
