Leaving a Legacy Through Bequest & Endowment

Naming Titusville Area Health Center Foundation in your will, a bequest, is a way of giving that can provide significant satisfaction to you while leaving a legacy in the community by providing local healthcare at Titusville Area Hospital in the future.   Your gift can support the greatest area of need at the Hospital or you can designate your gift to a specific program or service of the Hospital. 

To make a charitable bequest, you need a will or revocable living trust.  Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate or a specific amount of cash, securities or property.  After your lifetime, the Titusville Area Health Center Foundation receives your gift to benefit local healthcare.

If you are considering a bequest to the Foundation, share your interest with your personal attorney, accountant or investment officer so that your wishes can be established.  Naming the Titusville Area Health Center Foundation in your will or trust is all that is needed.  Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time. 

Example:  "I give to the Titusville Area Health Center Foundation (Tax Identification Number), a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization located in Crawford County, Titusville, Pennsylvania (choose one of these) a sum of $ (amount); or a percentage % (amount) of my residuary estate or description of property to be distributed for its unrestricted use for charitable purposes as determined by the Board of Directors."

An Endowment is leaving a gift in your will in a way that will continually give.  Your gift is invested and only the amount generated from the investment will be used to support the mission of the Foundation. If you are interested in this option, please contact your personal attorney, accountant, or investment officer so that your wishes can be established. 

Other types of planned gifts may include:

  • Life Insurance
  • Beneficiary designation through an IRA or pension plan
  • Real Estate
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Stocks and Bonds
