Interested in helping Edward Hospital but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

By including a bequest to the Edward Foundation in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue supporting Edward Hospital for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

If you are interested in leaving a gift to the Edward Foundation in your estate, notify the Foundation by completing the Letter of Intent for Estate Gift.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Young family with kidsWhen Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved Edward Hospital and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to the Edward Foundation in their will.

As Tom and Martha's family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the bequest language so that their gift to the Edward Foundation was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
