Columbus Community Hospital

Sterling Society legacy giving

Sterling Society LogoIn 2021, we launched the Sterling Society, which recognizes the group of generous individuals who have chosen to include the Columbus Community Hospital Foundation as part of their estate planning.  

Name Columbus Community Hospital in your will

We hope you’ll consider including a gift to Columbus Community Hospital Foundation in your will or living trust.  Called a charitable bequest, this gift offers several benefits, including tax relief as permitted by law. (Your estate planner or attorney will be able to advise you on your tax savings.)

You can designate a percentage of your estate to the foundation, or you can make a specific bequest by giving a certain amount of cash, securities or property. Making a gift from your life insurance policy is an option that works for many donors, too.  After your lifetime, Columbus Community Hospital Foundation receives your gift.

How to structure your will

When planning a future gift, it’s sometimes difficult to determine what size donation will make sense.  Emergencies happen, and you need to make sure that your family is financially taken care of first. Including a bequest for a percentage of your estate ensures that your gift will remain proportional, no matter how your estate’s value fluctuates over the years.

The following are words you can use when naming Columbus Community Hospital Foundation in your will:
“I [name], of [city, state, ZIP] give, devise and bequeath to Columbus Community Hospital Foundation [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Our legal name is Columbus Community Hospital Foundation.

Our federal ID number is 47-0836747.
