A donor who wishes to make a gift to Penn Medicine through his or her will (known as a bequest) need not rewrite the whole will to accomplish this. The donor's attorney can draft a codicil, a simple addendum to the will, leaving the donor's other estate plans in place. See gift of bequest for more information.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and that help preserve the future of Penn Medicine.

The programs of Penn Medicine depend upon your goodwill. To that end, there are myriad giving options — from naming Penn Medicine as a beneficiary in your will to more complex trust arrangements.

We've created this Web site to tell you about easy, creative giving strategies that can enhance your well-being (and your family's), along with Penn Medicine's.

The material presented in this Web site is not offered as legal or tax advice. We urge you to seek the advice of your tax advisor, attorney and/or financial planner to make certain a contemplated gift fits well into your overall circumstances and planning.
