Planned Giving – Creating a Legacy

"The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.”- William James

Welcome. Establishing a philanthropic legacy is a powerful act that helps ensure the health of future generations. Your legacy gift ensures that exceptional health care services that you care about today are supported well into the future. A planned gift can provide substantial tax savings as well as income for your life – all while supporting St. Joseph Health. You can learn how a planned gift has benefited other donors through the Donor Stories and Gift Options sections below.

Anyone who has invested in Memorial’s future by establishing a bequest or other planned gift becomes a member of The Al and Helen Maggini Legacy Society. To learn more, click on the links below.

If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit from a planned gift, please call Liz Tunney Williams or another member of the foundation staff. Liz can be reached at 707.547.4692 or
