Giving Through Your Estate
A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals and benefit Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) or Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital (BWFH) in ways that may not be possible through lifetime gifts.
If your estate is subject to estate tax, giving through your estate plan generates a charitable estate tax deduction, which may result in substantial tax savings. You may direct all or a portion of your estate to BWH or BWFH.
If you would like to make a planned gift to BWH or BWFH, make sure the organization’s correct legal name appears in all final documents.

While most assets pass through a will, retirement plans and life insurance policies are governed by a separate document, called a beneficiary designation.
