Ways to Give Through your Estate

There are several ways to support the Providence foundations through your estate plan. You can:

  • Establish a charitable gift in your will or living trust.
  • Designate assets to the foundation while receiving a life income, through a charitable gift annuity or a charitable trust .
  • Create an endowment that will provide funds for your area of interest for years to come.
  • Leave stocks, real estate or personal property to a foundation.
  • Make the foundation a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, pension plan or IRA.

If you would like to make a gift to a Providence foundation through your estate plan, we encourage you to:

  • Contact your attorney to review your will or living trust to make sure that it is up to date and that it reflects your charitable objectives. To name a Providence foundation as a beneficiary of your will, you may want to share the following language with your attorney:

"I hereby bequeath to the [insert Providence foundation name], located at [insert Providence foundation address], [insert percentage of estate or dollar amount] to be used for [insert program of choice here] or for general purposes as determined by the board of trustees."
