Leave a Lasting Gift 

Many Marillac donors ask us about leaving a lasting gift to support the mission of the Clinic and the programs that mean so much to their fellow citizens and neighbors.

If we could show you a way to meet the needs of your family, and also make a legacy gift to the Clinic, would you be interested? Below are just a few of the giving options you might consider.

A Gift In Your Will

Providing for loved ones and causes you care about can be taken care of easily by leaving instructions in your will. A will bequest can be structured as a lump sum, a percentage, or residual gift of your estate. A bequest may also have tax benefits for your estate and your heirs.

A Gift Of Securities

The best stocks to donate are those that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield. A charitable gift of stocks completely avoids the long-term capital gains tax and allows the full value of the asset to benefit others.


A Gift Of Life

You can contribute a life insurance policy to us by naming MarillacHealth either as the owner of the policy or simply as the beneficiary. If Marillac is named as both owner and beneficiary, in most cases you will be entitled to an income tax deduction. In addition, if you continue to pay premiums on a policy that we own, you can deduct the future premium payments.

A Gift Of Real Estate

A gift of real estate can be structured to allow you to live in your home during your lifetime and enables you to make a larger than anticipated donation to charity. You can preserve your cash assets and receive significant tax and income advantages by using your home, farm, or income property to fund a gift.

Because of your gifts…

Thousands of our fellow citizens find help and relief at Marillac every year. Because of your gifts they come, young and old alike, from all walks of life – hard working families, single moms, children – all deserving of care. But the real story is not in the numbers. It’s in the faces of our patients. It’s in the hearts of our dedicated associates. If they could meet you in person, they would just want to say “Thank you!”

“We have been supporters of MarillacHealth for more than 20 years, both as donors and volunteers. When it came time to revise our will, we both knew we wanted to do something for the Clinic that means so much to us. After meeting with an estate planner, we not only learned that you don’t need a large estate to do this, we also found that it was incredibly easy to designate a percentage of our estate to several of the causes we care about. Needless to say, Marillac was at the top of our list.

It feels so great to know that we can leave a legacy of giving that will continue long after we’re gone, and that average folks like us can make a lasting impact in the community we love so much.”
