Bequests and Legacy Gifts
By including Spaulding in your estate plans, you have a profound impact for generations to come—and inspire others with your legacy of generosity.
Naming Spaulding in your will or trust is a simple and flexible way to make a deferred gift to Spaulding that reflects your enduring values and philanthropic priorities.
Through your estate plans, you can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate once all of your other distributions have been fulfilled as you wish.

Earmarking Your Gift
In addition to an unrestricted gift, it is possible to earmark a bequest for a specific purpose, place, or program.
Gifting Through a Life Insurance Policy
