The Mass General Legacy Challenge is your opportunity to advance medicine and be a part of Mass General’s mission — without writing a check!

The Mass General Legacy Challenge is a special initiative of The Campaign for Mass General designed to raise the visibility of future gifts as a way to support the hospital now and over the long term. Every time Mass General is notified that a donor has named the hospital as a beneficiary in their will, trust or other account, a gift* to the MGH Fund will immediately be made!

Through the Legacy Challenge, Mass General puts every gift to work in a most innovative way.

*For each new bequest intention with a dollar amount, a generous matching sponsor will make a gift to the MGH Fund equal to 10% of the value of that bequest amount up to $10,000. For example, if we receive notification of a new bequest confirmation of $250,000, a $10,000 match will go to the MGH Fund.
