Legacy Gifts

Make a lasting Impact

Making a planned gift provides you the chance to support our work now or after your lifetime, helping you align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans.

Many giving options offer financial benefits, enabling you to make the greatest impact on our patients, students, and researchers while maintaining the security of you and your loved ones.

The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or a living trust. Other planned gifts include:

  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • A charitable lead trust
  • An endowment fund
  • Retirement plan assets
  • Life insurance policies
  • A remainder interest in your home
