Planned Giving

Since its founding, our hospital has been closely integrated with the community around us and the patients we are privileged to serve. In fact, every patient is touched by the generosity of others - not just by a compassionate and talented medical staff, but by the donors whose generosity supports these dedicated professionals. Through initiatives in clinical areas, research and facilities, the impact of philanthropy can be felt throughout our hospital.

If you would like to share that impact, please let us know how we can help bridge your interests and needs, by working with you to create a gift plan that makes sense for you. There are many ways to do this: an outright cash gift; IRA qualified distributions; gifts of property or life insurance; charitable trusts; or as a beneficiary in your will. It’s our privilege to be a resource for information and help you consider your legacy at Vassar Brothers Medical Center.
