Planned Giving & Legacy Society

Many donors decide to make planned gifts to KishHealth System Foundation because they find these donations can provide economic benefit – enabling them to realize tax savings and make a philanthropic impact. Over the years, we have received several planned gifts to further our mission.

When donors inform us of their intention to make a planned gift, we are able to offer recognition through our Legacy Society.

How do I make a planned gift?

There are many gift vehicles that can be used to create a planned gift. Your attorney or tax adviser can give you guidance regarding which type of gift is the most beneficial for your specific situation. A few examples are listed below.

  • Name KishHealth System Foundation as beneficiary of cash, either a fixed amount or a percentage, in your will, trust, or estate plan.
  • Name KishHealth System Foundation as beneficiary of stock or other type of personal property in your will, trust, or estate plan.
  • Designate KishHealth System Foundation as the owner or beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy.
  • Create a Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Lead Trust, or other type of charitable trust and designate KishHealth System Foundation as a beneficiary. KishHealth System Foundation offers a Charitable Gift Annuity program.

Designate KishHealth System Foundation as a beneficiary on your tax-deferred retirement plan such as an IRA or 401k Plan. The Health Foundation receives the full benefit of your gift, and it is not taxable income to you.

People make gifts to KishHealth System Foundation for many personal reasons, but typically because they know their gifts will help provide quality healthcare for the community.
