By including Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation in your will, not only will your estate benefit from a tax deduction, but you will be leaving a legacy. Legacy gifts or bequests may specify a set amount of money, a particular asset or a percentage of the estate to be donated.

Planned gifts can:

Leverage modest, current gifts of disposable income into larger future sums; increasing your gift potential
Maximize your available tax, financial and estate benefits
Ensure that your personal and financial objectives are met
Leave a legacy and testament of your loyalty to the Hospital or a particular area of the Hospital
Be personally rewarding

Here are a few venues through which you may make planned gifts:

Bequests
Charitable Annuities
Life Insurance Policies
Charitable Remainder Trusts
