Planned Giving

Wills, bequests, planned giving opportunities

As we journey through life, we often think about how we would like to be remembered. Many friends of The Mount have chosen to support our residents and programs by including Providence Mount St. Vincent in their wills or estate plans. This unselfish gesture provides an opportunity for the donor to be remembered long after they are gone.  Estate gifts are a vital source of support for the charitable work of Providence Mount St. Vincent and can be designated to benefit a specific program, service or simply where the need is greatest.

Ways to give

There are almost as many variations on ways to make a gift as there are needs to be met. But here are a few suggestions to consider:

  • Bequests—one of the easiest ways to support The Mount. The donor includes the designation of the gift in his or her will.
  • Gifts of stock, real estate or personal property.
  • Charitable gift annuities—through a simple contract, you agree to make a donation of cash, stocks or other assets to the Providence Mount St. Vincent Foundation. In return, you receive (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. 
  • Memorial Gift—Find comfort when someone you care about passes away by establishing a memorial gift in your loved one’s honor and memory. While that special person may be gone, his or her legacy can live on through your gift.
  • If you are considering an estate gift to the Providence Mount St. Vincent Foundation, we encourage you to contact your attorney or financial consultant.
