Gifts by Will or Trust

Making a charitable gift, or bequest, from your will or trust enables you to meet your financial goals while supporting Massachusetts General Hospital as well. No other planned gift is as straightforward to make or as easy to update, should you need the assets later on. 

A bequest may be right for you if:  

  • You’re interested in ways to reduce your estate tax.  
  • You want the flexibility to revise your plans if your circumstances change. 
  • You want the security of having continued access to your wealth throughout your lifetime.
