Welcome to the Gift and Legacy Planning section of the McLeod Health Foundation website!
Legacy gifts provide far more than financial resources. They give hope. They give compassion.
Thoughtful estate and gift planning allows an individual to take care of themselves,
their loved ones and the causes that were important to them during their lifetime.
There are several factors to consider. If you are not familiar with the concepts and strategies of charitable gift planning,
you might want to take a moment to consider some of the factors in planning for the future.
And check out our chart that briefly describes some of the charitable means that are available to you – see How Can I Give.
We at McLeod Health Foundation would be most honored to be a part of your future plans.
Thank you for your consideration of support for the McLeod Health Foundation.
