Planned Giving and Bequests

Gift Planning

What better legacy can there be than to provide healing for future generations? Gift planning is a way for you to personally help advance pediatric healthcare and achieve your retirement and estate planning goals at the same time. Make the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation a part of your legacy by including a gift of any size in your will or living trust.

A charitable bequest involves giving through a will, and it is the most common method of planned giving. The Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation will work with you and your attorney and/or financial advisor to develop a flexible bequest plan that could provide you with tax incentives, while creating a lasting legacy that demonstrates your generosity.

Our staff can help you develop a giving plan that is as specific or as general as you prefer. Your gift plan will be tailored to meet your financial situation and your vision for the health and well-being of our community’s children—now and for years to come.
