Gifts by WIll or Trust

Gifts by Will or Trust

Ensuring support for the Bon Secours Mercy Health Foundation through your will or living trust is a simple way to make a lasting gift. It is also easy to change, should you ever need the assets during your lifetime.

Naming Us as a Beneficiary

While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.

Donor-Advised Fund

Opening a donor-advised fund (DAF) with BSMH Foundation can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. You can also donate to the Foundation from your existing DAF if you have one.

The IRA Gift (QCD)

The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to Bon Secours Mercy Health Foundation.

The IRA Charitable Rollover Gift Annuity Plan

You can now make a Qualified Charitable Distribution in exchange for a charitable gift annuity and receive fixed income for life.
