Bequests and other estate gifts have provided vital support of the hospital’s lifesaving mission throughout its history. William Phillips, the first president of the MGH Corporation, left a bequest to support the construction of the Bulfinch Building, the hospital’s first clinical facility, now a national landmark. His vision, planning and support helped create a hospital that has made major contributions to medicine and scientific discovery.
Bequests and other estate gifts continue to make a lasting impact on MGH medicine. These gifts touch every department and program, supporting patient care advancements, pioneering medical research, and teaching initiatives throughout the hospital. A planned gift is the most personal gift that you could give to the hospital, and Mass General appreciates your consideration in making a bequest or other legacy gifts.
The future holds great promises in medical advances, and with your help, Mass General will remain at the forefront, enhancing patient care and fueling scientific discovery.
