PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation Planned Giving

Your legacy gift makes a lasting difference

Consider including the PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation in your will. Without affecting your financial security, you can help ensure that the exceptional health care services you care about today will be available for generations to come.

A gift through your Will

Bequests, also known as gifts through your will, are also the most realistic way for many donors to leave a legacy for succeeding generations. Making a bequest is easy to do. Your attorney can include the necessary language in your will, in a codicil to your will, or in a revocable living trust.

Sample bequest language

I give, devise and bequeath  [identify here a specific sum of money or percentage] to PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation, Federal Tax ID #72-1545902, 2901 Squalicum Parkway, Bellingham, Washington 98225, to be used for the benefit of PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center, in such a manner as the Board of Directors thereof may direct.

If you are considering a bequest but would like to ensure that your bequest will be used for a specific purpose (eg Cancer Center, Cardiovascular Services Childbirth Center ) please let us know. We would be happy to work with you and your attorney to help you identify ways to give and meet your charitable objectives. We will also work with you and your attorney to craft language to accomplish your goals.
