Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
Deepen Your Connections
You want to leave money to support the MultiCare foundation or program you care about in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change. You can do both.
In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift. This type of donation to support your favorite MultiCare program or foundation in your will or living trust, helps ensure that we can continue providing the best care in your community in the future.
There are a variety of ways to make a gift:
This is one of the most popular forms of a charitable bequest. Simply designate the MultiCare program or foundation you choose, and it receives a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate or an in-kind gift like a piece of property.
A residuary bequest is used to give the MultiCare program or foundation all or a portion of your property after all debts, taxes, expenses and other beneficiaries have been paid.
A contingent bequest enables you to name the MultiCare program or foundation as an alternate beneficiary of all or of a portion of your estate, which means we will receive the bequest only if your primary beneficiary or beneficiaries do not survive you.
An Example of How It Works
Meet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to Good Samaritan Hospital to support its greatest needs at the time the gift is received. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that Good Samaritan Foundation, for benefit of the Where The Need Is Greatest Fund, received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
