Create a Brighter Future for Pediatric Healthcare in East Tennessee

Will you leave a legacy?

What values do you want to pass to the next generation? How do you make your legacy meaningful and make it go further? Children’s Hospital offers complimentary and confidential values-based legacy planning services through a professional team of attorneys and financial planners. These experts specialize in creating a legacy plan that ensures 100% of your money goes exactly where you intend.

A values-based estate plan answers your biggest concerns:

  • Do I have enough money to endure financial security for my future?
  • How can I provide for my spouse, children and grandchildren?
  • How can I give to my heirs in responsible and relevant ways?
  • How can I self-direct the portion of my estate that must be used for the greater good for society, commonly collected as tax?

How you include a gift in your will or revocable trust depends on what you want to accomplish, and what you want to give to charity. Some options are:

  • Bequests – you designate the organization as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust or beneficiary designation form.
  • Gift annuities – you transfer your cash or appreciated property to the organization in exchange for the charitable organization to promise to pay you fixed payments for the rest of your life.
  • Appreciated assets – Find out what type of assets make the best planned gifts. Learn about gifts of cash, securities and property.

Children’s Hospital is a charity and by naming the hospital as a beneficiary in your estate plan, your tax burden can be reduced while helping heal children in our community.
