Planned Giving

Couples walking on the beach

We all want our lives to have mattered, for the world to be a better place because we were here. Planning a gift to Winthrop-University Hospital in your Will or trust or naming Winthrop as beneficiary of a retirement or other account, for example, are wonderful ways to support the care of patients, the training of doctors, and medical research.

Tax-smart giving while you are alive – whether of appreciated stock, real estate, or other assets, through an IRA Charitable Rollover, or by creating a gift that pays income to you or a loved one – can reduce your tax burden, allow you to give more than you might have thought possible, and help Winthrop fulfill its important, life-saving mission. What gift is more valuable than the gift of health?
