This section offers ideas that will enable you to be a partner with Bayhealth. We are Southern and Central Delaware's healthcare leader with hospitals in Dover and Milford. We are here to strengthen the health of our community one life at a time. Planned Giving provides the resources necessary to sustain excellence and preserve the future of Bayhealth Hospital.

There are as many different ways to support The Bayhealth Foundation as there are needs for your support. Planning a gift is more than just finding a need. There are a lot of factors to consider. If you are not familiar with the concepts and strategies of charitable gift planning, you might want to take a moment to consider our Quick Guide to Planned Gifts (Planned Giving Options) and Factors in Planning.

The links that follow offer more details about a variety of types of gifts as well as assets to consider as the source for a gift. There are also stories about donors whose circumstances may be similar to your own. The choices can be as simple as a bequest in your will or trust that provides support to Haven after you are gone or a current gift such as a charitable gift annuity that provides income for your lives as well as a charitable tax deduction and potentially some relief from capital gains tax.
