Gift Planning

Preparing Your Will or Trust

You can include Brigham and Women's Hospital as a beneficiary of your will or trust by:

  • Giving a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate
  • Designating stocks, bonds, real estate, or other property
  • Naming us as a residual beneficiary, so that the Brigham receives your gift after you have provided for your family and loved ones

As you consult your attorney on the appropriate wording to reflect your own goals and intentions regarding the Brigham, be sure our organization’s correct legal name appears in all final documents as:

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Inc., Federal Tax ID Number 04-2312909
The Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, Inc., Federal Tax ID Number 04-2768256

If you already have a will, you can add the Brigham to it by creating an amendment. When you make a gift of this nature, we ask that you use the legal name of the hospital, as well as our tax identification number. The Office of Gift Planning is also happy to provide you with any additional language that will help create your gift.
