WILLS AND BEQUESTS
Perhaps the most profound way to ensure the legacy of your generous spirit is through a bequest. By including the Maimonides Medical Center in your will, you help sustain our work, our compassionate patient care and our programs for future generations.
There are several ways to include Maimonides in your will. You may leave a specific dollar amount or a particular property; you may specify a set percentage of your estate; or you may leave the remainder of your estate after providing for your heirs. All options will help you reduce your estate taxes.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES
When you donate securities to Maimonides Medical Center, not only do you support the premier specialty care teaching hospital in Brooklyn – you also reduce your own tax burden.
Compared to selling them outright, donating your securities to Maimonides can result in significant tax savings. Your gift of appreciated securities that you have owned for more than one year allows you to save significantly on your capital gains taxes. You can usually take a deduction for the full current value, while not having to declare the appreciated value as a capital gain.
