Top 5 reasons to contribute to Appling Healthcare System for a Tax Credit:


  1. By contributing to Appling HealthCare System for a tax credit, you, not the state of Georgia, decide how to spend your money.
  2. Subject to some limits, you receive a state income tax CREDIT for 70% of the amount you contribute and, if you itemize deductions, a federal charitable income tax DEDUCTION!
  3. Rural hospitals face significant financial and demographic challenges and your contribution will improve the finances of your local hospital and its ability to serve its patients.
  4. Participating hospitals are required to use contributions for health-care related expenses and have to submit a five-year sustainability plan to the Department of Community Health.
  5. In several years, some exciting new programs and practices should be in place to help rural hospitals and your tax credit-eligible contribution can help “bridge the gap.”

Georgia lawmakers have provided taxpayers with the opportunity to give their rural hospital donations a booster shot. Please consider contributing to your participating Georgia HEART hospital today!
