Estate and Planned Giving

A carefully planned gift has the power to create a legacy that will touch the lives of future patients and caregivers well beyond your lifetime.

Living Legacy

By becoming a member of Hospice of Frederick County's Living Legacy program, you will help bridge the financial gap hospice faces each day, and ensure that family members, friends and neighbors continue to have access to these services—regardless of their ability to pay.

Some examples of legacy gifts include:

  • Bequests
  • Gifts of cash, securities, or personal property
  • Life Insurance
  • Bequests of retirement assets
  • Charitable/Annuity Trusts
  • Gifts of IRA distributions, real estate or stocks
  • Charitable remainder trusts/annuity trusts
  • Charitable gift annuities/lead trusts

If you are interested in establishing a Living Legacy, we recommend that you consult with your financial advisor and/or attorney. You may also contact our Hospice Development Office at 240-566-3036. We have a Planned Gifts committee comprised of estate attorneys and financial planners who are available to assist you.
