Plan Your Legacy

Legacy gifts provide the foundation for Baystate Health Foundation’s work. These gifts allow you to take care of your family, provide for gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Baystate Health Foundation. We can help you find the best way to make your gift, and perhaps help you to make a larger gift than you thought possible.
