Bequest by Will

Planned giving options such as gifts of real estate, stock and/or annuities provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve our ability to provide life-saving services. Below are some typical giving strategies. If you are unsure about which option to choose, contact us and we can walk you through each option step-by-step.

One of the simplest planned gifts is a bequest through your will in which you designate either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate after other disbursements.

How it Works:

Benefits:
