Planning your legacy gift

If provided with the opportunity, most of us would leave a legacy gift to show that our lives made a difference to others. Donors are interested in contributing to an important cause with lasting, and meaningful, impact. 

Today, there are many ways to make a legacy gift and experience the satisfaction of knowing that you were able to make an impression on the health care of future generations. The power of philanthropy is evident when we look at how these legacy gifts make a difference each day throughout Spectrum Health and the communities we serve. Every gift matters! 

Legacy giving combines charitable giving with financial and estate planning. It enables you to make a more substantial gift and may offer tax and financial benefits. Below you will find several legacy giving options to consider.
