Gift Planning

You are here

Your planned gift will help support life-changing care and groundbreaking discoveries, and it can also provide possible financial and tax advantages.

Benefits of Giving

In addition to supporting the mission of the Brigham, a planned gift can provide substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The benefits may include: 

  • An Income Tax Deduction
  • Reduced Capital Gains Taxes
  • Reduced Probate Costs and Estate Taxes
  • Income for Life

Simply by taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you and your advisor can craft a gift that fits your needs, as well as the needs of the Brigham. Even with the increased standard deduction in the tax law that became effective January 1, 2018, an immediate income tax charitable deduction resulting from a planned gift may lead to itemizing deductions and greater tax savings. A planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and the Brigham to all benefit.

We want to be sure that we can fulfill your wishes. If you have any questions, please contact:
