Giving Options

Gifts by Will or Trust

A charitable gift from your estate is a popular method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit Baystate Health Foundation.

Naming Us in Your Assets

While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.

Life Income Gifts

Gift & estate planning is a great way to support Baystate Health Foundation while generating income for yourself and your family. Our supporters are taking advantage of the new - and higher - gift annuity rates.

Retained Life Estates

Donate your home, farm or a second home to Baystate Health Foundation and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.

Bargain Sale

Receive immediate cash and make a gift to Baystate Health Foundation by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth.
