Planned Giving

Grinnell Regional Medical Center offers donors several unique and underutilized ways to make a charitable gift, some with significant tax advantages. All gifts can be designated to an area you choose.

Planned giving takes one of two forms:

  1. A legacy.  This is a charitable gift provided for in a person’s will (a bequest or device), which typically comes out of their estate.
  2. A gift made during the donor’s lifetime.  This is a charitable gift in which the donor receives a tax benefit at the time of the gift, and usually also still obtains some type of other benefit associated with the donated property.  These gifts are usually established with a contract that ends after a fixed period or upon the death of the donor or some other person.

The GRMC Legacy Club recognizes those who have made a commitment to the future of healthcare in our community by naming GRMC in their will or funding a planned gift to the medical center. Legacy Club donors establish an ongoing relationship with GRMC as partners and are kept informed of special events, projects, and plans for improvement. In addition, the names of donors, with permission, are included on the Legacy Club recognition plaque and are listed in GRMC’s annual report.
