Ways to give

At CHMC Foundation, we appreciate your charitable donations, whether large or small. We offer two types of charitable contributions to fit your family's budget: outright and deferred gifts.

Outright gifts: Immediate charitable donations

Planned gifts: Delayed charitable donations

This form of charitable giving involves laying plans for your estate, so the funds will change hands at a later date. Deferred or planned giving may take many forms, depending on the personal, financial or estate plans of the donor.

The most common form of planned giving is a bequest in a donor's will. Other planned gifts may include life insurance or retirement assets. Some planned gifts, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, may return income to donors or other beneficiaries during their lifetime.
