Wills, Bequests, and Planned Giving

Estate planning

Some of the most important decisions that you make in your life may be the decisions that you make about leaving a legacy gift through your estate. What lasting contribution will you make to help the people, causes and charities that you have supported in your lifetime? What gifts will you make that will have an impact beyond your lifetime? Estate gifts are a vital source of support for the charitable work of Providence Marianwood and can be directed toward a specific program, charity or the area of greatest need.

Ways to give through your estate

  • Establish a charitable gift in your will or living trust.
  • Designate assets to the Marianwood Foundation while receiving a life income through a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.
  • Leave a gift of stocks, real estate or personal property to the Marianwood Foundation.
  • Make the Foundation a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, pension plan or IRA.

If you would like to make a gift to the Providence Marianwood Foundation through your estate plan, we encourage you to contact your attorney to review your will or living trust to make sure that it is up to date and that it reflects your charitable objectives.
