You Can Leave a Legacy of Hope

Maryhurst realizes many of our friends long to help the kids and families we serve in enduring, sustainable ways. Through various planned giving opportunities, we can help you realize these wishes while ensuring you still are able to meet your other needs.


A bequest is a gift made through a provision in your will naming Maryhurst as beneficiary. A gift of this type may reduce estate taxes. By notifying the Development Office of your gift, we will name you and/or your family as a member of the Legacy of Hope Society.

Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts provide you with a regular income stream while also providing financial support to Maryhurst. Common gifts of this type include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.

Beneficiary Designations

A beneficiary designation allows you to continue supporting our work even after your lifetime by naming Maryhurst as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance or insurance annuity assets.

For more detailed information about planned giving with Maryhurst, please contact Micah Jorrisch, Vice President for Development & Communications, at 502.271.4520.
