  • For many of the people whose lives have been forever touched by Winthrop-University Hospital, supporting the Hospital and its mission through bequests or planned gifts is a way of demonstrating their deep appreciation for the high quality, compassionate care they received here.

    These devoted supporters of Winthrop are recognized by membership in The Guardian Society, which was established to recognize thoughtful friends and benefactors who have made a commitment to the future of Winthrop by including the Hospital in their estate plans.

    “Donors who commit to a planned gift create a legacy of personal philanthropy and establish themselves as Guardians of Winthrop-University Hospital in perpetuity,” said Barry Cosel-Pieper, Director of Development at Winthrop.

    There are numerous potential advantages to a bequest or planned gift. Many grateful friends are able to make a more significant gift than they thought possible through their Will or estate. In addition, some planned gifts qualify for an immediate tax deduction, may increase spendable income or provide significant future tax savings for the donor’s family.

    A bequest is easy to establish and does not limit access to needed assets during your lifetime. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of gift planning, please contact Mr. Cosel-Pieper at (516) 663-3398.
