Here are a few ways to leave your legacy with Dignity Health:

Gifts by bequest or estate plan 

Including Dignity Health Foundation in your will or living trust, or naming Dignity Health as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy, in one way to leave your legacy. The amount left can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.

Charitable gift annuities

Charitable gift annuities are one way to make a significant gift to Dignity Health Foundation and receive a lifetime of payments in return. In exchange for a major, outright gift, Dignity Health Foundation agrees, by contract, to pay a fixed amount each year to you and/or another beneficiary for life.

Charitable lead trust

If you have appreciating assets that you want to pass on to the next generation at less cost to you, this planned gift option could be for you. Make a gift to a trust, which in turn makes annual payments to Dignity Health Foundation. At the end of the term, the remaining assets go to your children or other beneficiary.
