Plan Your Gift

You can establish a legacy for generations to come by making a planned gift to Saint Luke's Foundation

A planned gift – either through your will or estate plan – is one of the most effective ways to touch future generations and make a far-reaching impact.

Contrary to a common misperception, you don't have to be wealthy to make a planned gift. However, you do have to be generous.

And you need to be smart. After all, we all leave behind a legacy in the form of taxes. A well-planned gift can help you achieve your philanthropic goals, provide for your heirs, and reap financial and tax benefits.
