Georgia Community Bank recently contributed $75,000 to Donalsonville Hospital through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program. This is the largest Georgia Heart donation the hospital has received since the program’s inception in 2017.
The Georgia HEART Hospital Program administers the Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit, enabling individuals and businesses to redirect their Georgia income tax liability to help support qualifying hospitals.
“We are grateful for community partners like Georgia Community Bank whose generous financial support will allow Donalsonville Hospital to provide excellent healthcare to its patients both now and in the future,” stated James Moody, Hospital Administrator.
HEART funds help provide and maintain the services that Donalsonville Hospital has implemented over the years including physical therapy, respiratory therapy, 24-hour emergency room coverage, labor and delivery, and upgrading and maintaining state-of-the-art technology like Dexascans, 3D mammography, CT scans, and more.
“Our company feels privileged to participate in the Georgia HEART program and to see how our donation directly impacts our neighbors at Georgia Community Bank,” said Alton Harrison, Market President. We hope that other businesses will join us in doing their part to advance access to quality care for Georgians who live in rural communities.”
Through HEART, Georgia taxpayers can contribute in exchange for a 100% state income tax credit, up to specified limits, to qualified rural hospitals of their choice. C Corporations and pass-through business owners who participate may also qualify for an additional federal business expense deduction.
