Establish a Named Endowment Fund
To create a tribute that will last for generations to come, you can establish a named endowment fund now or through your estate plan. Endowments are structured so that a small portion of the fund is used each year, with the balance invested for future growth. This helps ensure that the fund continues to give and your loved one's name is forever associated with quality and compassionate care at Baystate Health. Read how the Grodsky Family showed their commitment to quality healthcare with a gift to endowment.
Many gifts to the Baystate Health endowment are directed to "greatest needs" to enable us the flexibility to meet critical and changing needs. If you have a particular area to which you would like to direct your endowment, please contact Kylie Johnson at 413-794-7789 or email@example.com to discuss your interests.
Here's a Potential Scenario
When Sarah's mother passed away, Sarah knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy in memory of her mother. Sarah remembered that during her lifetime her mother was always praising Baystate Health for its tireless efforts to better the community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to Baystate Health in her mother's name using appreciated securities. Sarah received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the stock. She also has the pleasure of knowing her mother's legacy will live on at Baystate Health through the Nancy E. Harper Fund for Patient Care.
