Ways to Join our Legacy Society

Make a Gift Through Your Will

A donation through your will is the most common planned gift. With help from an attorney, you may wish to include language in your will specifying a gift be made to Aurora Health Care Foundation as a part of your estate plan. To name Aurora Health Care Foundation in your will, you may share the following language and tax identification with your attorney: "I give and bequeath __(percentage or dollar amount) to Aurora Health Care Foundation, Inc. (Tax ID#39-6044569), located at 950 N. 12th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53233."

Make a Gift of Your Assets

A gift of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or life insurance policy is one of the easiest ways to empower people to live well. You only need to add “Aurora Health Care Foundation, Inc.” as a beneficiary of your plan.

Charitable Gift Annuities

You may give a donation to Aurora Health Care Foundation’s charitable gift annuity and receive a secure income from the Foundation for your entire life. In addition, your contribution of cash or securities is eligible for various tax deductions. At the end of your life, the remaining value of your annuity will be used to permanently influence the health of your community.
