Gifts by Bequest

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways that you can leave a gift to Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation that will make a lasting impact. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation as part of your estate plan. Benefits of a bequest include receiving an estate tax charitable deduction, reducing the burden of taxes on your family and leaving a lasting legacy to Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation.

Charitable Remainder Unitrust

A charitable gift annuity is a gift made to our organization that can provide you with a secure source of fixed payments for life. Benefits of a charitable gift annuity include receiving fixed payments to you or another annuitant you designate for life, receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the charitable gift portion of the annuity, and benefitting from payments that may be partially tax-free.

Charitable Lead Trust for Family

If you are looking for a way to pass on some of your assets to your family while reducing or eliminating gift or estate taxes, a charitable lead trust is an excellent option. Benefits include receiving a gift or estate tax charitable deduction, passing inheritance on to family at a reduced or zero cost, and establishing a vehicle from which you can make annual gifts to Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation.
