What will your Legacy be?
As you plan for your future, you are making a number of important decisions. One of those carefully planned decisions may be to leave a legacy gift- a meaningful gift that will endure beyond your lifetime for the benefit of others- to a charitable organization like the MED Foundation of Mercer Health.
The motivation to give a legacy gift to Mercer Health comes from many places… gratitude for an exceptional experience, belief in a vision of loving-kindness, faith in a mission to ensure local, quality healthcare, or a desire to make a difference in the community by helping those in need.
Whatever your motivation, you can be assured that your legacy gift will impact the lives of future generations of children, families and seniors in our community who rely on Mercer Health to be here when needed.
One of the easiest, most meaningful and enduring legacy gifts is to include a bequest to the MED Foundation of Mercer Health in your will. By remembering Mercer Health in your will, you can impact your community’s healthcare in a way that endures far beyond your lifetime. This is one way that permits you to plan in the present to meet your own needs and those of your heirs, while investing in Mercer Health for future generations.
A bequest may be structured in a number of ways:
• A specific dollar amount or specific holding of your estate:
• A percentage of your estate;
• A portion or all of the remainder of your estate following the satisfaction of other bequests, or
• A combination of the above.
Planning your estate and legacy for future generations including your charitable interests takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can assist you. Discussing your charitable intentions with us can lead to a much better result than going it alone- and will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can provide valuable information about creative giving techniques.
