Planned Giving and Estate Gifts
Estate planning is the most important tool individuals have to protect their assets for financial security, transfer wealth to their heirs and support charities that have been important throughout their lifetime.
If you are interested in establishing an estate gift to benefit Meriter, there are variety of options to consider: • Legacy gifts — bequests through a will or trust • Gifts that provide income — Gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, pooled income funds • Gifts of appreciated securities — Stocks, bonds, mutual funds • Gifts of property — Real estate
Many donors find that through planned gifts, they are able to make a significant philanthropic impact as well as reduce tax liabilities and increase spendable income. Estate planning requires knowledge of the complex tax structure and skillful planning, Meriter Foundation is here to help you at all stages of the process, please contact Barb Cooper, Director of Development, (608) 417-5301.
Pinnacle Caregiver Program
Meriter believes in exceptional patient care. If you or a loved one would like to show your appreciation for the care and compassion received during your visit, please consider a gift to Meriter Foundation’s Pinnacle Caregiver Program. A Pinnacle Caregiver is anyone who exceeded your expectations and made your Meriter experience the best possible. Your gift will recognize the efforts of a special physician, nurse or staff member.
Caregivers will receive a beautiful lapel pin to wear proudly and a certificate of recognition in the company of their supervisors and colleagues. Your gift will provide an added boost to support patient care initiatives from educational opportunities for Meriter nurses to transforming our patient and family care areas.
