We can work with you to include language in your will or trust to designate “Community Health System, Office of Philanthropy” as a beneficiary. There are several ways to do this:
  • A dollar amount
  • A specific asset
  • A percentage of your estate
  • The remainder of your estate

Retirement Plans & Insurance Policies 

Donating your retirement assets, like a 401(k) or IRA, is an excellent strategy for fulfilling your charitable goals. Retirement assets left to family are often significantly depleted through estate and income taxes. By designating “Community Health System, Office of Philanthropy” as the beneficiary:
  • The full value of the gift is transferred to the hospitals tax free

  • Your estate receives a charitable deduction  

Gifting a life insurance policy can also greatly reduce your taxable estate while creating a lasting legacy in your community. We’re available to answer your questions and work hand-in-hand with you to customize a plan to fit your needs.
