The Family Health Services Foundation

Invest in the Health of the Magic Valley

As a non-profit Community Health Center, our mission is to ensure our patients can afford the services they need. We have resources that allow us to reduce the cost of our services, but we often refer patients to local providers for specialized services that we do not offer in our clinics, such as colonoscopies or breast cancer screenings. This is where patients often face the biggest barrier to care, as these recommended services tend to be expensive and unaffordable for many of our patients. 

Having served the Magic Valley for four decades, we have witnessed the transformative power of preventative services in reducing healthcare expenses over a person’s lifetime. We established the Family Health Services Foundation so we can extend our mission and support patients beyond the walls of our clinics. The Foundation is designed to be a safety net of funds that can help cover the cost of additional care our patients need for services received outside of our clinics.

We encourage those who can to support the Foundation, as every donation goes directly to our patients. This support helps promote early detection, timely treatments, and healthier outcomes for our patients and supports the resilience of our community at large. Our patients may be your neighbors, your coworkers, your employees, your friends, or your family members, and together we can create a safety net of resources that is here to ensure that no one goes without care due to financial constraints.

Ways of Giving to the Foundation

Cash Support
Any amount is appreciated! Your tax deduction is equal to the amount you have donated with a record of receipt. We will provide proof of return so you can ensure that you receive the appropriate deductions. 

This is one of the most tax-efficient ways to continuously donate, and there are many advantages to this method of giving. Contact our CFO, Robert Agnew, to discuss the benefits of giving through stocks. To facilitate a gift of securities the donor (or transferring broker) should contact the Foundation directly prior to transfer at (208) 734-3312

Planned Giving
You can support the future of Family Health Services through a life income gift. This can be organized through a charitable gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, or a charitable lead trust. This is a wonderful way to provide a future gift, and our CFO, Robert Agnew, can answer any questions you may have. Please contact him at (208) 734-3312. 

This is the most common form of deferred giving, and is included in a person’s will or revocable (living) trust. Bequests are a wonderful way to have an impact beyond your lifetime and to leave a meaningful legacy that will make a difference in our community for many years to come.

Life Income Gifts
Life income gifts benefit both the Foundation and the donor. Donors may receive tax and financial benefits by creating a life income gift—such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust—through which they can receive payments. 

Pooled Income Fund
These are creative ways for individuals to generate income while also giving smaller portions to charity. Through a fund, donors can “pool” together different securities and/or combine them with cash to create a larger amount of money to distribute to charity. Money is paid out to the donor and any other beneficiaries that have pooled together assets to the fund.

In-Kind Goods and Services
Donated goods, services, time/labor, use of facilities, and equipment are valuable gifts for our Foundation. We record the fair market value of each in-kind good and service as revenue, and the donor can take a tax deduction for it. If you are looking to partner and contribute goods and services to our projects, events, and community projects, contact our Foundation at (208) 751-2185.
