Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are strategic charitable investments that can provide you with important tax benefits now and in the future. Your planned gift also gives you the satisfaction of supporting the excellent patient care, education, and research programs of Mission Hospital.

Planned giving options are summarized below. To learn more about a type of planned gift, click on the appropriate heading below.

Charitable Bequests - including Mission Healthcare Foundation in your will and other estate plans generously supports our mission of healing for years to come.

Charitable Lead Trusts - often incorporated into long-term plans to transfer wealth to children or grandchildren. A charitable lead trust provides important current support to Mission Foundation and also helps donors greatly reduce their estate and gift taxes when wealth is passed on to heirs.

Life-Income Gifts - gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and the pooled income funds. These gifts provide donors with an income stream, significant tax savings, and the satisfaction of supplying Mission Foundation with vital long-term philanthropic resources.

We can provide you and/or your professional advisor with detailed information on the planned giving options which can most effectively meet your financial needs.
