Create a personal legacy supporting the communities we serve.
Leaving a legacy gift through your will or estate plan is a powerful way you can continue to ensure that patients and families in your community will receive our compassionate care for years to come. We invite you to explore how legacy gifts can help you realize your financial and estate planning goals while supporting the transformative programs and services of MJHS Health System.
The MJHS Sustainers Society honors and recognizes supporters who leave a personal legacy to MJHS Health System. Members of the Sustainers Society receive invitations to special events and recognition in select MJHS publications and newsletters.
A bequest are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust. In order to make a bequest you need to leave instructions, typically in a will. There are many different types of bequests, each with its own benefits.
Below are examples of language you can add to your will.
“I give and bequeath the sum of $___ (or ___% of my residuary estate) to MJHS Foundation, to be used in support of its general charitable purposes.”
Gift for specific purposes
“I give and bequeath the sum of $___ (or ___% of my residuary estate) to MJHS Foundation, to be used in support of _____ (e.g., Hospice, Dementia programming, Creative Arts and Music Therapy) at MJHS Health System.”
“If changed circumstances should at some future time make it impractical to continue administering the Fund for the purpose designated, then the MJHS Foundation Board of Directors may redesignate the purpose, provided the terms adhere as closely as possible to my original intent.”
