There are many ways to make a gift to the Mainland Campus Transformation Campaign. Choose a giving strategy that matches your philanthropic goals and financial situation. The AtlantiCare Foundation experts would be happy to discuss the best way for you to make a gift, but here is a general overview:

Cash and Credit Card Gifts

If you make your gift with a check or by credit card, you may be eligible for a deduction for the full value of your gift. This deduction may be available for up to 50% of your Adjusted Gross Income and carried forward for up to five additional tax years.


Your donations may be spread out over a five-year period. We can help you structure a payment schedule that accommodates your individual needs.

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

If you give appreciated securities you have owned for at least one year, you may be eligible for a deduction for the full value of the security on the date we receive it. This deduction may be available for up to 30 percent of your Adjusted Gross Income and carried forward for up to five additional tax years.

Real Estate

If you, like many individuals, own real estate for which you have no further use, this asset may offer an attractive way to make a substantial gift and simultaneously realize important tax and income benefits. You can donate your personal residence, vacation property, commercial property, building lot, undeveloped land, etc. You may be able to significantly reduce the amount of income, capital gain and estate taxes you otherwise might have to pay. You can even deed a personal residence and retain the right to live in it for the rest of your life.

Personal Property

Under certain circumstances, art, jewelry, antiques and other tangible personal property may fund a gift
to AtlantiCare.

Retirement Plan Assets

You can use assets from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other qualified pension or profit-sharing plan to fund your gift.
Since these assets remain the most highly taxed asset in many estates, people who want to avoid taxes to their estates find them particularly attractive. These gifts are usually credited toward the campaign goal at their current full face value.

Your Will or Trust

A gift through your will or trust could provide a substantial gift to the Mainland Transformation Campaign without impacting your lifestyle as long as you live. Consider giving a percentage of your estate, the remainder of your estate after all other obligations and gifts have been paid, a particular asset, or a specific amount. Pledges from wills or trusts of people over the age of 65 are credited toward the campaign goal at their current face value.

Life Insurance

There are a variety of ways to use life insurance to make a substantial gift to AtlantiCare. Depending on the type of policy you donate, you may receive an immediate income tax deduction, as well as deductions for future premium payments. The full face value of gifts of existing or new policies are usually credited toward the campaign goal.

Gifts That Pay You Income

You can make a gift to the Mainland Transformation Campaign through a trust or annuity that will pay you and/or another beneficiary annual income for life. At the death of the last income beneficiary, the remaining principal is transferred to AtlantiCare. These gifts may be credited toward the campaign goal at their full face value.

Mainland Campus Transformation Campaign



Over the last few years, patients, staff, physicians, local employers, residents and visitors have expressed their need for increased capacity and capabilities at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Mainland Campus. For AtlantiCare to continue meeting the healthcare needs in Atlantic County and the surrounding areas, a significant building and renovation project at Mainland is imperative. Some of the many factors that validate this need include:


  • In the past decade there has been a dramatic increase in the number of surgical cases at Mainland. This trend is expected to continue as AtlantiCare’s primary care practices expand.
  • As a result of AtlantiCare’s high quality care and service, more patients are choosing AtlantiCare for specialty healthcare rather than traveling to Philadelphia or New York.
  • Our population is aging and will be requiring more healthcare in the coming years.
  • There are many new senior housing and skilled nursing facilities in the area served by the Mainland Campus. Their residents depend upon the Mainland Campus for inpatient and specialty care.
  • Parts of the Mainland Campus are now almost 40 years old and are in need of repair and renovation.
  • Increasing patient volume is creating a need for additional parking.


AtlantiCare has initiated a transformation of the Mainland Campus that will include a 35,000-square-foot expansion and significant renovations to the existing facility. Here are some highlights of the project:

Addition and New Main Entrance
A two-and-a-half story addition at Mainland’s current front entrance will include a new reception area, lobby, registration center, gift shop, coffee bar, same-day surgery suite with 10 private patient bays and a dedicated elevator, a post anesthesia care unit (PACU) with 22 private rooms, a hybrid operating room and two new cardiothoracic operating rooms.

Many areas of the existing facility will be renovated, redesigned, relocated, modernized and/or expanded,
including the cafeteria and kitchen, existing registration area, sterile processing department, cardiac surgery offices, physician lounge, psychiatric inpatient unit, existing operating rooms, PACU, staff locker rooms and lounges, interior entrance for the Joint Institute, waiting area and support offices for operating rooms, intensive care unit and cardiovascular care unit.

Both the main visitor parking lot and the Center for Childbirth parking lot will be expanded and reconfigured to make parking more convenient for patients and guests.




The cost of the Mainland Transformation Project is approximately $62.5 million. AtlantiCare is seeking at least $5.5 million of this in community support to help us continue to offer the superior healthcare services our community needs and deserves. We invite individuals, foundations and corporations to join us as partners in providing this exciting new level of clinical capability. Together we can build a healthier community today, tomorrow and well into the future.

Please submit a Mainland Campus Transformation Campaign Pledge Form, donate online at www.atlanticare.org/giving, or call the AtlantiCare Foundation at 609-272-6318 to discuss a planned gift.
