CORDELE, GA-Taking advantage of the statewide rural hospital organization expense tax credit program, referred to as “Georgia HEART,” Rainwater, Gibbs, & Wright, LLP has contributed $30,000 to Crisp Regional Hospital. CRH will use the contribution to purchase new technologies to continue providing exceptional patient care.

“At Rainwater, Gibbs, & Wright, LLP, serving our local community is one of our top priorities,” said David Rainwater, Partner at Rainwater, Gibbs, & Wright, LLP. “This contribution is just another way we can strengthen our community and invest in the health care of current and future generations.”

Lawmakers enacted the Georgia HEART tax credit program to encourage taxpayers throughout Georgia to learn more about the financial and other challenges rural hospitals face and to contribute to improve their financial condition and patient offerings.

The State of Georgia uniquely empowers its citizens with the opportunity pay their state income taxes – an expenditure that they are required to make anyway – through contributing to qualifying rural hospitals to improve healthcare access and services for thousands of Georgians. Through HEART, individuals and business can make 100% tax credit-eligible contributions, up to specified limits, to qualified rural hospitals of their choice. “C Corporations” and Pass-Through Entity business owners who participate may also qualify for an additional federal business expense deduction.

“On behalf of Crisp Regional, I want to express my sincere gratitude to Rainwater, Gibbs, & Wright, LLP for this gift,” said Brooke Marshall, Foundation Director at Crisp Regional. “Rainwater, Gibbs, & Wright, LLP have shown their commitment to the Crisp community, and this gift will truly make a difference and will help us better serve our patients.”

Currently, 58 rural hospitals are eligible to receive these tax credit-eligible contributions from individuals and businesses across the state. Crisp Regional participates in the Georgia HEART program, which assists with the marketing and administration of the rural hospital organization expense tax credit. Together, the hospital and Georgia HEART are helping to Enhance Access to Rural Treatment.

Georgia income taxpayers who are interested in participating in HEART are encouraged to visit www.georgiaheart.org to learn more and submit an application.

Georgia HEART is partnering with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Hospital Association to maximize the financial and non-financial impact of philanthropic investments in rural hospitals by Georgia businesses.
