Planned giving provides a meaningful opportunity to support Rhode Island Hospital. This philanthropy enables the hospital to focus on our unyielding pursuit of excellence in patient care, pioneering research and medical education and technology.

Ways to Give

Leave a Lasting Legacy

Planned Giving offers many options to help you make a charitable gift while deriving financial benefits, including income for life for you or another, and an immediate one-time charitable income tax deduction for a portion of your gift (in the year of the gift.)  In many cases a Planned Gift can allow a donor to make a stretch gift and receive an income stream in return.

Your bequest can help ensure Rhode Island Hospital’s future.  It can also offer practical advantages to you and your heirs; among them charitable gifts are 100 percent deductible from your taxable estate.

IRA/Retirement Plan Gifts

Gifts from a retirement plan allow donors to name Rhode Island Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of all or a portion of their IRA, 401(k), or other retirement accounts. By naming "Rhode Island Hospital Foundation, Providence, Rhode Island" as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, you can eliminate estate and income taxes on the funds. This combination of taxes can otherwise take up to 60-80% of your asset. Your beneficiary form can designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage to the hospital.  Please contact your plan administrator for the necessary forms.
