Your gift matters. Because of generous people, there’s a daughter somewhere hearing the good news that her dad is going to get well; there’s a classroom of kids giving a teacher a rowdy welcome back after an illness. And beyond the smiles and high fives are unforgettable individuals who have named Wake Forest Baptist in their estate plans.   

Charitable gift planning can help you achieve your goal of making a difference to the causes that matter to you, while supporting you and your family at the same time.  

Gift strategies cover an array of resourceful and imaginative plans. Some planned gifts provide lifelong income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning to maximize the gift or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. 

Some ways our donors give include:

  • Provision for Wake Forest Baptist in a will or living trust
  • Designating Wake Forest Baptist Health or Wake Forest School of Medicine as the beneficiary of an insurance policy
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Real estate
  • Endowed gifts 

Start your journey of giving and learn more about different options available to you. We’ll work with you to find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support Wake Forest Baptist.
