Georgia HEART Program

Archbold Medical Center is excited to be partnering with the Georgia HEART Hospital Program for an opportunity for individual and corporate taxpayers to make a charitable contribution dedicated specifically for any of our four hospitals and receive both a federal charitable income tax deduction and a direct Georgia income tax credit against what you currently pay in state income taxes. Brooks County Hospital, Grady General Hospital, John D. Archbold Memorial Hospital and Mitchell County Hospital all qualify for this rural tax credit program that is sure to be popular among individual and corporate tax payers.

Donations made to any of our hospitals will be designated to help fund capital equipment needs; facility improvements and direct patient care enhancements at the hospital selected by the donor and cannot be spent elsewhere. Your gift will remain local, directly impacting the care of patients in our communities.

From January 1 through June 30 of each taxable year, the following limits apply with respect to Georgia HEART contributions:

  • In the case of a single individual or a head of household, a 100% Georgia income tax credit for contributions to RHOs, up to a limit of $5,000;
  • In the case of a married couple filing a joint return, a 100% Georgia income tax credit for contributions to RHOs, up to a limit of $10,000; and
  • An individual who is a member of a limited liability company, shareholder of an "S" Corporation, or partner in a partnership (pass-through entities) is allowed a 100% Georgia income tax credit for up to $10,000 of the amount they contribute to a RHO, so long as they would have paid Georgia income tax in that amount on their share of taxable income from the pass-through entity
  • A “C” Corporation or trust shall be allowed a 100% Georgia income tax credit for contributions to RHOs equal to the amount of the contribution, or 75 percent of the corporation's or trust’s income tax liability, whichever is less.
