Winthrop-University Hospital has been honored to receive numerous bequests over the years. Grateful patients and families often include the Hospital in their Wills or Estate Plans as a way to provide generous support for our outstanding healthcare programs and services. Bequests may allow a donor to help fund valued programs by making a larger gift than possible with current income.
The most popular form of bequest is the "remainder interest," which allows donors to provide for one or more favored charities, such as Winthrop, from the remainder of their estates after all other obligations have been met. Since most donors do not know what the exact size of their estate will be, using a percentage is often the best way to divide remaining financial assets. If you are considering a remainder interest bequest or some other form of planned gift to benefit Winthrop, we would be pleased to provide you or your attorney with sample language, an illustrationnllustration and additional information.
