Through their generosity and thoughtful foresight, Brigham Legacy Society members are celebrated for supporting the future of medicine by making a gift through their will or trust; designating the hospital as a beneficiary of their retirement plan, life insurance policy, or donor advised fund; establishing a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust; or making another planned gift.

Brigham Legacy Society members receive a variety of offerings:

  • Invitation to an annual luncheon featuring a guest speaker
  • Personal contact in Development Office
  • Invitations to attend informative brown bag sessions focused on timely financial planning topics
  • Recognition in annual honor roll publication
  • Bi-annual issues of Brigham Health magazine
