"The measure of human beings is not their deeds, but in the legacy they leave."- Scott Shuker
Many of our programs and services rely on the generosity of our community, not just for today’s patients; but for the families that Samaritan will be privileged to serve in the years and decades to come. Pledging now to support those who will need help in the future provides you with peace of mind, knowing your wishes are clear and will be carried out, and your support be felt for years to come.
There are a number ways you can include Samaritan in your financial plans:
Plan a Gift or Bequest
Putting Samaritan in your will - whether it is to give a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate - is one gift that anyone can afford. Your future gift will help to ensure that future Samaritan patients will benefit from the same exceptional care being offered to today’s families.
An endowment gift provides essential annual income in perpetuity to support programs and services which receive no other reimbursement. Named endowments begin at the $10,000 level.
Life Income Opportunities
Give a gift, get a gift! Through charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts, you can make a gift to Samaritan while receiving an income from your gift, as well as tax benefits.
Gifts of Assets
By donating gifts of securities, you avoid capital gains on the increased value, but are able to take the full deduction. Gifts of real estate or other properties may reduce your taxes for this year, as well as for up to five additional years.
By including Samaritan in any of the above forms of support, you also become a member of Samaritan's Legacy Society.
