Estate and Planned Gifts

Gift Planning

Naming Tufts Medical Center in your estate plan or making a planned gift, such as a charitable gift annuity, is a meaningful way to create your own personal legacy, while expressing a deep commitment to future generations of patients. Your gift can provide general charitable support to meet the Medical Center’s greatest future needs, or it can fund a specific patient care, research or education initiative that holds special meaning for you. Regardless of the purpose or size of your gift, you are creating a lasting legacy at Tufts Medical Center that will make a difference for generations to come.

Friends who make the generous commitment to support Tufts Medical Center through an estate or planned gift are proudly recognized as members of the William L. Saltonstall Society. The William L. Saltonstall Society is named for William L. (Bill) Saltonstall, a friend and trustee who for decades epitomized the generosity of spirit that has allowed Tufts Medical Center to remain true to its charitable roots of providing all, regardless of resources, with the finest care possible.

To create a planned gift and join the William J. Saltonstall Society, we invite you to use FreeWill’s free estate planning tool. This online resource makes it cost-free to create your estate plan and include the necessary language to support Tufts Medical Center with a planned gift. FreeWill’s tools can also produce a list of documented wishes if you’d prefer to finalize your plan with an attorney.
