Planned Giving

Many donors dream of leaving a legacy to their charity of choice but feel they may not have the ability to do so during their lifetime. Planned Giving can be the answer - it provides a careful way to make a significant gift that is tax-effective and balances the donor’s financial needs with their charitable goals. And at the Dartmouth General, your planned gift will help to ensure our high level of patient care continues well into the future.

 

A Gift in your Will

The easiest way to make a planned gift is by leaving a gift to Dartmouth General Hospital Charitable Foundation in your will. This enables the donor to make a significant gift to the hospital while having little or no effect on their current lifestyle.

Through a gift in your will, you can leave a specific amount of money or a percentage of the residue of your estate.  Please discuss your wishes with members of your family and seek the advice of your financial planner or legal counsel.

 

Giving through Life Insurance

There are many creative ways to support the hospital through a gift of life insurance. You can name Dartmouth General Hospital Charitable Foundation as the beneficiary to an existing or new policy or donate a paid-up policy. The Foundation would be pleased to work with you to determine the best way to meet your philanthropic goals balanced with your family and personal needs.

 

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of stock may be an ideal way to make a significant contribution to the hospital. Please download a copy of our Transfer of Publicly Traded Securities Form and contact your local financial representative for more information. 

 

Other options include:

  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Charitable GIft Annuities
  • Gifts of Residual Interest

 

The Foundation would be pleased to work with you to determine the best way to meet your philanthropic goals balanced with your family and personal needs.
