Leave a legacy of hope

Your annual gifts to support leading-edge research, education, and care at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital make a real difference to children and their families. But did you know you also can leave a legacy gift that will make a difference after your lifetime? When you include a gift to support children’s health at the University in your estate plans, your future gift will provide critical funding to accelerate the development of new treatments and cures for childhood diseases.

Creating a charitable legacy that will help children live healthy and happy lives may be easier than you think. You can make a gift through a bequest in your will or living trust or simply name the Minnesota Medical Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. You maintain control of your assets during your lifetime and can modify your plans if circumstances change. There also may be significant tax benefits for your estate and your heirs.

Have you already included a gift to benefit children’s health at the University in your estate or financial plans? We hope you will let us know. By informing us about your future gift, we can recognize and thank you now and work with you to ensure that the funds from your future gift are directed to the programs or areas you wish to support. (You can share your gift intentions with us and still choose to remain anonymous.)
