As we confront the challenges of the future, we know that the generosity of those who assist us will make all the difference in our success. That is why we seek your support.
We also, want to make sure that you benefit from making a gift to St. Elizabeth Medical Center Foundation. In addition to making a difference in the lives of others, the best gift plans improve your financial and tax situation. Through creative gift planning, you can secure your own financial future, as well as ours.
To design a gift that benefits the people and organizations you care about most, we recommend that you obtain the professional counsel of an attorney who specializes in estate planning. We can work with your advisors to help you plan for tomorrow and receive maximum benefits today. Please contact the SEMC Foundation at 315-801-4440.
