Planned Giving

Planned Giving
Whether we have much or little, a plan is crucial to the effective use, management and distribution of our resources for our family and our community.  Working with professionals, donors can develop a giving plan that is equally rewarding for themselves, their heirs and the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Foundation.  Not only will your generosity support our mission, but you'll also receive special tax benefits.  A variety of planned giving options are available - bequests, living bequests, charitable gift annuities, endowments, deferred giving and more.

The Foundation staff will inform, guide and serve donors wishing to make a planned gift; however, we urge anyone considering this type of gift to seek the counsel of their own legal advisor in reviewing the tax consequences, terms and overall estate plan implications.

For more information about giving opportunities, please call the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Foundation office at (661) 327-4647, extension 4539.
