The Heritage Circle

Planned gifts such as wills, trusts, insurance policies and stock

The Heritage Circle recognizes those who provide for the future of the GLH Foundation through their estate plans.

Providing Excellent Healthcare

Our community deserves excellence in healthcare, and at Greenwood Leflore Hospital providing excellent care is our highest priority. Lives are saved and medical advances occur daily at Greenwood Leflore Hospital thanks to the team of dedicated professional people who provide medical care to our patients. However, the cost of high quality care increases annually due to the changing needs of our community and the increasing demand for new services and technology.

Financial Support is Needed

As a provider of healthcare in our community, Greenwood Leflore Hospital desires to provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and life sustaining equipment. A gift to the Greenwood Leflore Hospital Foundation enables us to improve and expand services and provide state-of-the-art medical technology for our community. We all want the best medical treatment available for our family and friends. Charitable gifts help Greenwood Leflore Hospital to become one of the finest hospitals in North Central Mississippi. Since fundraising began in 2006, donations to this giving club have enabled Greenwood Leflore Hospital to better meet the needs of rehab patients who are limited to some degree and not able to live a normal life due to excessive pain and discomfort by providing a decompression system. Spinal Decompression treatment provides non-surgical relief to severe back and neck pain sufferers by gently reducing the pressure within the spinal discs, drastically reducing pain and disability.

Tax Benefits for Giving

In addition to improving community healthcare, charitable gifts can provide donors with current income tax benefits and significant reductions in federal and state death taxes. You do not have to reduce income or change lifestyle to make a gift. Certain options give you the benefit of an income tax deduction while retaining the income from the gift. Charitable gifts are not taxed. Why pay unnecessary estate taxes when your bequest can create a permanent, personal legacy to your belief in the importance of high quality healthcare services in North Central Mississippi?

How Can I Help?

There are many ways to qualify for membership in The Heritage Circle – ways which can provide you and your heirs with income tax deductions and estate tax reductions – ways which may actually increase your annual income from present investments.

You may wish to consider:

  • A bequest in your will
  • Establishing a trust or endowment fund now or through your will
  • A gift of life insurance or annuities
  • Donating stocks, bonds or real estate

If you have made or plan to make Greenwood Leflore Hospital one of your beneficiaries, simply advise the Greenwood Leflore Hospital Foundation of your planned gift. As an alternative, you may prefer to ask your professional advisor to notify us that you have included the hospital in your estate plan.
