Donate to Zufall Health Center
For twenty-five years, Zufall Health has been here for patients who may be unemployed or underemployed, have little or no insurance coverage, or cannot afford medical care. Over 26,000 patients are served at our headquarters site in Dover as well as medical and/or dental offices in Morristown, Hackettstown, Flemington, Somerville, West Orange, and on our Highlands Health Van which extends our reach into Sussex, Warren, and Hunterdon counties.
Zufall patients are among the neediest in the state. Currently, 57 percent are uninsured, with most of the remaining 43 percent on Medicaid, NJ Family Care, or Medicare. Over 90 percent have incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. With patient visits up 25 percent from last year, we are finding it increasingly challenging to accommodate and care for all the men, women, and children who seek our services.
Your gift will make a healthy difference helping people in your own community.

Gifts of Stocks
In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for the full market value of a gift of stock, the donor avoids paying tax on the capital gains. For more information on how to contribute securities, contact Christine Bonney at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 908-526-2335, ext. 134.
There are several types of planned giving which would allow you to make donations to Zufall Health while generating tax or estate benefits:
- Appreciated Assets: Gifts of assets that have increased in value (e.g. stocks and real estate) may allow you to save on both income and capital gains taxes.
- Charitable Trusts: with amounts over $100,000, two types of larger gift trusts — Lead and Remainder — offer tax and estate planning advantages.
- Gift Annuities: Purchasing these allows you to provide for your and/or your family’s future while making a significant gift to Zufall Health. Other benefits include stability (not subject to market fluctuation), variety (cash, appreciated stock,or other assets), and tax deductions.
- Bequests: You can include Zufall Health in your will as either a specific bequest or as last contingent beneficiary. This is the simplest planned gift, but might also have positive estate ramifications.
For more information on how to contribute through planned giving, please email Christine Bonney at email@example.com or call 908-526-2335, ext. 134.
