Request Information

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.

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.
