Gift Planning



MedStar Health is a mission driven not-for-profit healthcare organization which provides critically needed care for more than half-million patients every year in the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

Our commitment to innovation is leading the way to tomorrow’s healthcare solutions. And, because we are committed to our not-for-profit mission, we remain dedicated to reinvest in the health and wellness of all the communities we serve.

MedStar Health is grateful for the philanthropic support from our partners who continue to make a lasting impact across our ten hospitals and hundreds of care access sites. Many of our investors provide gifts of cash and stock which benefit us today, while others prefer to give a deferred or legacy gift.

Deferred (Legacy) Gifts

Deferred or legacy gifts come in many forms and can be as simple as designating your preferred MedStar hospital in your will, changing the beneficiary status on your retirement assets, or making a gift that provides you, and your beneficiaries, tax advantages and/or revenue streams today and into the future.

  • Charitable Bequests: a way to provide assets (cash, securities, real estate, life insurance) through your will.
  • Beneficiary Designations: a retirement plan, such as an IRA or 401(k), can be a tax-efficient way to give by designating MedStar Health as a beneficiary through your plan.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity: an agreement that gives you a lifetime fixed income payout.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust: an arrangement that places cash, securities or property into a trust allowing you to receive income from the trust for a lifetime or for a period of years, at which time the remaining assets are transferred to a designated non-profit entity, such as MedStar Health.
