Ways to Give

Gift-Generating Income

The most common donations to the South Shore Hospital Charitable Foundation are outright gifts, such as cash or check, which we receive right away. But many people prefer to hold on to their money and assets, because they want to be sure they can meet their family’s future financial needs. These individuals are often pleased to learn about the various giving alternatives we have available, that allow them to make a gift while assuring their fiscal security. One of these options may be right for you. To learn more about any of the following Legacy Giving options, contact Pat Thompson for a confidential conversation at 781-624-4061 or email her.
