Planned Giving - Bequests

Giving through your estate is an easy way to make a legacy gift. Through a provision in your will or living trust, you can transfer cash, securities or other property.

Another way to make a bequest is to designate the Bronson Health Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. 

Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • A bequest costs you nothing now and is easy to arrange. 
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime. 
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change. 
  • Gifts to the Bronson Health Foundation from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes. 
  • You can direct your gift to a particular purpose, or to be used for the greatest need. 
  • Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests. 
  • A gift of an IRA means no income taxes are paid on that asset. 
  • When you set-up a bequest, we will thank you now and recognize you as a member of our legacy society.
