Leave a Legacy

In addition to gifts of money there are a variety of ways in which you can support the Foundation including the following:

  • A gift in memory of a loved one. This can be in lieu of flowers at a memorial service or otherwise.
  • A gift designated to the Bethesda Foundation in your will. Some individuals designate a percentage of their assets to be given to a designated charity; others will name the charity as one of several individuals or organizations to receive equal shares of the estate.
  • A gift in kind, such as a property.
  • A gift of life insurance proceeds. A life insurance policy may be purchased designating a charitable organization such as the Foundation as a beneficiary. The proceeds of the policy will be paid to the charitable organization upon on the death of the policyholder.
  • A gift of stock, bonds or other securities. An RRSP / RIF may be taxable income to your estate. Why not consider an offsetting charitable donation.
  • Discover the tax benefit of donating publicly traded securities to Bethesda Foundation.  You pay no capital gains, while receiving a donation receipt for the fair market value of the securities.

"Some of the best times I had with the Foundation were serving sausage burgers to the kids at the SRSS, who were part of the Dragon Boat races, and hosting appreciation luncheons and barbecues for the hospital staff."
