Planned Giving

Estate gifts help support doctors like Michael Muto, MD, and Colleen Feltmate, MD, so they can deliver the most advanced, safest, and most personalized care to patients.

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 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 the Brigham.



If you would like to make a planned gift to the Brigham, make sure the organization’s correct legal name appears in all final documents.
