Leave a French Hospital Legacy

French Hospital Medical Center is a mission driven, not-for-profit hospital, serving the health care needs of our community for more than 60 years. As a not-for-profit hospital, the majority of our funding is generated through patient care with all of the profits invested back into the hospital to meet community health care needs.

You can create a legacy by making a planned gift to French Hospital Medical Center Foundation. As a French Hospital Legacy Circle member, you provide vital resources that enable French Hospital to deliver compassionate, high-quality health services to the San Luis Obispo community. A planned gift offers you the opportunity to secure income for you and your family, benefit from current tax incentives and help French Hospital deliver quality health care now and well into the future.

Tip of the Day

If this is a high-earning year for you, a gift of cash will enable you to offset more taxable income than from a gift of appreciated securities.

You can claim the deduction up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI) with a gift of cash. On the contrary, you can claim only up to 30 percent of AGI with a gift of appreciated securities.*

*You may claim deductions in excess of the percentage limits during the five years after your gift is made.
