Planned Giving

A planned gift is a charitable contribution established during a donor's lifetime that may not be received in full by Palmetto Health Foundation until the donor's death. It provides an opportunity for charitable giving in circumstances that may not otherwise allow a donor to make a gift to a charitable organization. This type of gift is often made through wills, insurance policies and trusts that allow a donor to invest money so the donor receives benefits during his/her life and then bequests the remaining funds to the Foundation. Some planned gifts are structured so the Foundation receives regular contributions during the donor's lifetime while the donor receives charitable deductions and other tax benefits. Planned giving can be in the form of cash, real estate, stocks or other resources.

Palmetto Health Foundation is pleased to extend a special invitation to you to learn whether you have the most current estate plan that best meets your goals. Palmetto Health Foundation has contracted with Thompson & Associates to provide charitable estate planning expertise to donors at no cost. Thompson & Associates is a national leader in estate planning, and its team has nearly 250 years combined experience in non profit executive leadership and charitable estate planning. All information shared with Thompson & Associates remains strictly confidential, and Palmetto Health Foundation will never have access to your personal information. Should you ultimately choose to leave a gift to Palmetto Health Foundation, the Foundation will never know unless you decide to inform us.
