Including LWDHF in your will ensures your support for a cause you care about will continue even after you’re gone. Unrestricted planned giving gifts allow 50% to be used for immediate needs.  The remaining 50% will be placed in our Endowment Fund where it will continue to give back to LWDHF for generations.  You can also take comfort in knowing that your gift to LWDHF will lesson the tax burden on your loved ones when transferring your estate.

Here are some planned giving alternatives that can make a difference for your hospital:

  • Making a bequest in your will
  • Donating Stocks
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
  • Donating RSP’s or RIF’s
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust

Like all strategies that affect your estate, charitable gift planning involves many choices and requires much thought. When contemplating a planned gift to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation, please discuss your matters with your family and your tax adviser or investment professional.
