Planned Gifts

As you and your family discuss the future, consider making a deferred gift to St. Mary's of Michigan Foundation, St. Joseph Health System Foundation or St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital Development Fund. Your planned contribution will not go into affect until the end of your life but is a proactive step you can take now to ensure your wishes are carried out through your will or trust. This simple act will benefit our ministries today and in years to come and can provide your family tax benefits. 

There are several ways to make a deferred gift including a bequest, qualified retirement plan, life insurance or life estate agreement. We invite you to be part of our legacy of caring.

For more information on planned giving options or sample language to include in your will, please call (989) 907-7791 or e-mail Karen Stiffler, Executive Director, Karen.Stiffler@ascension.org.
