                                  Matthew P. Kwacala         to the charities you care about while at the same

                                                             what is a charitable trust?
                               There are actually two types of charitable trusts: charitable lead trusts and
                            charitable remainder trusts. A charitable lead trust supplies a steady stream of
                            income to a designated charity, or several charities, for a specific number of years.
                            When the number of years comes to an end, any property still held in trust is
                            given back to the donor, or a beneficiary chosen by the donor. In contrast, a
                            charitable remainder trust provides a stream of income to the donor for a specific
                            period of time, or for the donor’s life, and then any property remaining in the
      MDH Golf
      Tournament            trust is gifted to the charitable organization(s) when the period ends. In simpler
   Saturday, September 8    terms, the lead trust gives the selected charities the income created by the trust,
         gold Hills         and then the remaining funds are given back to you; while the remainder trust
                            gives you the income created by the trust, and then the remaining funds are gifted
                            to the selected charities.
                               But why take the time and effort to set up a charitable trust rather than just
                            writing a check to your selected charity? The simple answer is tax breaks. Since         13
                            a charitable trust allows an individual to make gifts to charitable organizations
                            without giving up all rights over the property contained in the trust (either cur-
    Tevar Run/Walk          rently or at a later time), it is an exception to the general tax rule that an indi-
    Saturday, October 6     vidual can’t claim a current tax deduction by making a limited, or postponed,
      The Old Dairy         gift to a charitable organization. By setting up a charitable trust, an individual
                            can make a future gift to a charity and still claim a current income tax deduc-
                            tion for the gift. Another example of tax savings involves capital gains taxes since
                            charitable organizations are not required to pay them. Therefore, if you fund a
                            charitable trust with stock that you own, your chosen charitable organization
                            can sell the stock (without paying capital gains taxes) and invest the money in
                            something else, like a mutual fund. Then, you can receive income from the value
        Festival of Trees
        Festival Trees      of the stock for your life. If you had sold the stock yourself, you would have had
    Festival of Trees       to pay capital gains tax on any profit from the sale of the stock.
 november 30-December 3        There are countless other incentives you can take advantage of by setting up a
        West Central        charitable trust, but the most satisfying is that you will be giving needed funds to
    Illinois Arts Center    the charities you care about and the people in need that they serve. If this interests
                            you, I encourage you to contact your financial advisor or attorney for assistance
                            as everyone’s financial situation is unique.

                            Have fun giving!

      MDH Partners with WIU for Art Exhibit

      M       cDonough District Hospital and Western Illinois University have entered into an exhibition agreement that is
              designed to allow the art of students, faculty, and selected works from the WIU Art gallery collection to be dis-
      played in the front lobby of MDH.
         The project to use the lobby of the hospital got underway after Professor Bill Howard; WIU Art Studio Technician
      Robert Brownlow; and Charles Wright, Chair of the Department of Art at Western met with the MDH Senior
      Leadership Team about interior upgrades in the front lobby of the hospital. MDH modified the lobby area to create
      the display space that will benefit Western’s exhibition programming and enhance the hospital lobby.
         The purpose of the project is to provide a welcoming visual respite to visitors as they enter the hospital. The works
      of emerging student artists, along with works of Western’s alumni artists and faculty will be exhibited. Appropriate
      selections from the WIU Art gallery will also be exhibited.
         Exhibits will be updated on a regular basis throughout the year, and the focus will be on one single artist or a group
      of artists. 3D work is also acceptable and can be exhibited along with 2D work.

       Pictured in the MDH lobby are, from left to right, Maggie Goettsche, MDH

      Behavioral Health Services Licensed to Provide DUI Evaluations

      M      cDonough District Hospital’s Behavioral Health Services was recently licensed by the
             Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse to pro-

         “State licensing enables our department to offer these services and expand our offerings to the
      community,” said Behavioral Health Services Director Kay Lee, MSEd, LCPC.
         The license will be up for renewal in november 2014. Other area providers of DUI services are
      Bridgeway and the Hopewell Clinic (one day per week).
