Planned giving with Buffalo Hospital Foundation
What is a planned gift?
To make a donation to the Buffalo Hospital Foundation
There are several types of planned gifts that an individual can make for the benefit of Buffalo Hospital Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Buffalo Hospital.
Bequests represent the majority of all planned gifts to the Foundation are easily included in your will or living trust.
Meet with your personal financial advisor or attorney to explore planned giving options. Certain kinds of planned gifts can provide donors with sizable income over a period of many years.
Others can help donors (or their heirs) avoid or minimize capital gains, estate and other taxes.
For example, charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts are planned gifts that provide income for life for the donor and/or another beneficiary with the eventual distribution to the Foundation.
They also provide immediate income, estate and gift tax deductions. Your remainder gift can even be designated to a specific hospital service or program.
If you are contemplating a tax-wise planned gift to the Foundation, benefiting Buffalo Hospital or considering changes to your will and including a bequest to us, we would be delighted to answer any questions or help in any way.
For more information, on what gift would meet both your needs and the needs of the Hospitals, contact your personal financial advisor or Karla Heeter, Foundation executive director at 763-684-6808.
