Estate Planning

Remember Providence. Make a difference with estate planning.

"With every deed you are sowing a seed, though the harvest you may not see."

Some of the most important decisions you make in your life are the decisions about what you will leave behind when your life comes to a close. What will become of the seeds that you've planted and cultivated throughout your life? What lasting contribution will you make to help the people, the causes and the charities that have meant the most to you continue to grow and flourish?

Your estate plan is your promise to the future. It's your opportunity both to provide for the people you love and to carry on the charitable work that you believe in.

Estate gifts are a vital source of support for the charitable work of Providence Health & Services. When you remember Providence in your estate plan, you support our efforts to improve care for medically fragile children; to investigate new therapies for people with cancer and heart disease; to acquire lifesaving tools and technologies; to create nurturing places for people at the very beginnings and ends of life; and to provide care for the body, mind and spirit, for anyone who needs it, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Gifts from a will, living trust, retirement plan, and life insurance are only a few of the available options for giving. Although you don't have to inform us of your gift, we hope you will give us an opportunity to say thank you by letting us know of your intention. This is particularly important if you plan to establish an endowment or would like to direct your gift to a specific program or service.

A thoughtful gift can help ensure that the health care ministry Providence brought to our region many years ago will continue for years to come.
