Charitable Bequests

Charitable bequests are an easy way to leave assets (cash, securities, real estate, life insurance) through your will to a MedStar Health hospital.


  • Bequests can provide significant gifts to MedStar without impacting current spending.
  • Bequests are modifiable, should your circumstances change.
  • Be recognized TODAY, for your generous commitment.
  • Deferred gifts reduce the size of your estate and can provide meaningful tax benefits.

If you want to designate your bequest to support a specific service, program, or area of research, please call 410-772-6950 or email us at [email protected] for suggested language.

Caring, Compassionate and Knowledgeable

Arthur LaFleur’s philanthropic investment in MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute is a meaningful way to memorialize the love he and his wife, Elizabeth shared.

When Elizabeth was faced with a diagnosis requiring a multivisceral transplant, Arthur and Elizabeth chose to receive care at MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute. Reflecting on the experience, Arthur is glad they made the choice.

Unfortunately, Elizabeth did not survive the nearly 12 hour operation. After she passed, Arthur wanted to express his gratitude and pay tribute to Elizabeth in some special way. Using a portion of the proceeds from her estate, he chose to honor their loving relationship, and Elizabeth’s passion for the Maine coast and lighthouses, by dedicating a tranquil fountain in the space where she received treatment. The gift creates a beautiful legacy that will benefit many patients and loved ones in the years to come.
