Our Tax status
The three Foundations of Bon Secours Charity Health System are each separate 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that a tax-exempt group must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any political campaign activity.
Donations made to the Good Samaritan Foundation are tax deductible. Contributions are directed toward facility, infrastructure, services and programs that Good Samaritan offers community members.
