Here's a Potential Scenario
When Pat and Tracy had children, they put together a will to protect their future and capture their values—a strong belief in the value of good health and the importance of giving back. Since Baystate Health’s Heart and Vascular Care Team had saved the life of Tracy’s grandmother Edith, they decided to honor Edith by including a tribute gift of $75,000 to us in their will.
Years later, as Pat and Tracy got ready for retirement, they decided to revise their gift to allow for the unexpected. They called their attorney and simply revised the will language so that their gift to Baystate Health was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Pat and Tracy’s hope is that their gift in Edith’s honor is far larger than they originally planned. They also now rest easy knowing that if their financial conditions should change, their estate plans meet the needs for their family while still ensuring a future gift remembering Edith and Baystate Health.
