Gift Options

The following information may be helpful as you consider the best way to make your gift:



Cash Gifts


A cash gift is one of the simplest ways to make a gift. Outright cash gifts are fully tax deductible, up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.


  • You can write a check payable to the  Mental Health Care Foundation and mail to:  5700 North 2nd Street, Tampa, FL 33610.


  • You can call the Foundation Office at 813-239-8174 to make a gift by credit card.

Gifts of appreciated stocks are fully tax deductible up to a maximum of 30% of adjusted gross income. Gifts in excess may be carried forward and deducted over as many as five subsequent years. You receive a two-fold tax savings by contributing appreciated stock over cash:

  • No capital gains tax on increases in value of stock
  • Income tax deduction for full fair market value of stock at time of gift


Example: You purchased stock for $1,000; it’s now worth $10,000. A gift of that stock would result in a charitable contribution deduction of $10,000. In addition, there is no capital gains tax on the $9,000 of appreciation.
