Planned Gifts

You can make a difference!

Do you want to make a difference in someone’s life? It doesn’t matter how much money you have, when you make planned gifts, you impact the health of our community. Depending on the type of planned gift that works best for you, your contribution can help you achieve your philanthropic goals by making a gift that benefits you now and The Foundation at Mission Regional Medical Center at a later date.

There are many types of planned gifts to consider, here are some of the most common ones:

Bequests or Wills

This is the simplest form of gift planning by allowing you to plan now and give later. This gift costs you nothing during your lifetime and allow you to name us in your will by designating a specific amount you want to donate.

Life Insurance

Simply leave The Foundation as your beneficiary in your old or new insurance policy that you no longer need. This allows you to make a large gift at little cost.


Real Estate and Securities donations allow you to avoid capital gains tax and removes taxable assets from your estate.

Charitable Remainder and Lead Trust

These two trusts ultimately benefit The Foundation and have different tax benefits for the donor.


Naming opportunities throughout Mission Region Medical Center are also available.

Planned gifts benefit The Foundation either immediately or ensure our future strength!
