Leave a Legacy

Planned Giving helps you meet your personal, financial and estate planning goals by making a lifetime or testamentary charitable gift. A bequest in your will or living trust makes a significant impact on the future of Kansas Health Science Center while allowing you to continue to use your property and assets that you will leave to charity during your life.

KHSC offers flexibility in supporting philanthropic priorities or creating named funds for specific projects. You may designate your bequest for a specific purpose. We are happy to work with you and your attorney to help you identify ways to give and meet your charitable objectives.

A bequest is generally a revocable gift, which means it can be changed or modified at any time. You can choose to designate that a bequest be used for a general or specific purpose so you have the peace of mind knowing that your gift will be used as intended. Bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes. If you have a taxable estate, the estate tax charitable deduction may offset or eliminate estate taxes, resulting in a larger inheritance for your heirs.

In order to make a bequest, you should speak with an attorney. Your attorney can help you include a bequest to Kansas Health Science Center in your estate plan. We can make available basic bequest language, if requested.

When you include a bequest for Kansas Health Science Center in your estate plan, please contact us to let us know. We would like to thank you and recognize you for your gift and ensure we understand your intended use for the gift.

Types of Bequests

Specific bequests involve making a gift of a specific asset such as real estate, vehicles or other property, or a gift for a specific dollar amount.

Another popular option is to leave a specific percentage of your overall estate, retirement account or life insurance policy to KHSC.

A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. You may choose to leave all or a portion of the residue of the estate to KHSC.

A contingent bequest is made to charity only if the purpose of the primary bequest cannot be met. So, if you leave specific property to a relative, the bequest language could provide that if the relative is not alive at the time of your death, the property shall be given to KHSC.

KHSC encourages donors to visit with their family, and financial and legal advisors, about strategies for making charitable gifts.
