Bequests are flexible and may be changed with your life circumstances. You are able to retain control of the asset during your life while also benefiting ECU Health by leaving a legacy.
A gift annuity is a special type of donation that allows you to support ECU Health while providing regular income payments to you or someone you designate.
Charitable Remainder Trust
A charitable remainder trust offers benefits including a new income, tax benefits and the ability to make a significant impact on your community during your lifetime.
Assets held in a qualified retirement plan have never been subject to income tax. Gifts to charitable organizations at death can reduce tax and the amount to family beneficiaries.
A donor may make a life insurance gift to the ECU Health Foundation either by designating the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of the policy or by designating a portion of the proceeds.
