Giving the Gift of Grain

Jack's Story

“The Gifts of Grain program is a great way for community farmers to support Pullman Regional Hospital for generations to come.”

— Jack Fulfs, member of the Endowment for Quality & Access Campaign Steering Committee


Giving the gift of grain

We live in an area of bountiful harvests. Now there’s a way for farmers to help support the health of our community through the gift of their unsold grain.

Gifts of Grain is a program in which grain or other commodity crops from unsold inventory produced in the preceding year is donated to benefit Pullman Regional Hospital (PRH) Foundation. The grain is simply transferred by storage or a notarized letter, and the local elevator sells the grain on behalf of the PRH Foundation. The elevator will send the benefactor’s name, contact information and a description of the donation to the PRH Foundation.

As with other gifts to the Foundation, the benefactor can choose to give to a specific area of need. Suggestions for designated areas of benefit include the Annual Giving for Excellence Fund Drive, the Endowment for Quality & Access, and Medical Technology.

How to give
If you are an active, self-employed farmer using cash-basis accounting, there are specific steps to take to receive the intended tax benefits from a gift of grain.

To find out more, please call the foundation office at 509-332-2046 or email We’d be happy to answer your questions and discuss the benefits of this program with you.
