Charitable Trusts, Bequests in your Will, and Other Planned Gifts

Gift planning allows you to align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans. Some common methods are including Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation in your will, naming the medical center as beneficiary on your life insurance policy, and setting up charitable trusts that benefit the medical center.


When you create an endowment, you are providing permanent support to Mary Greeley Medical Center. Your donation is invested into a fund and managed by the medical center, and each year a distribution is made from the endowment to support the program or area of your choice.

Sponsorship Program

Community leaders have the opportunity to directly impact the health and lives of thousands of people each year through their participation in the Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation Sponsorship Program.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts from your employer could double or even triple your donation to Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee charitable contributions. In most cases all you need to do is complete a form that is available through your employer and provide it to Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation with your contribution.
