Planned Giving


Swedish Legacy Gifts

A planned gift is arguably the most meaningful charitable gift you can make: It involves deciding what you want your legacy to be, how you want to make it, and who you trust to carry it out.

Just as the legacy you choose is exceptionally personal, the method of creating a planned gift is unique to each donor’s situation. There are a variety of options available in terms of how a gift is structured, what asset is used to fund the gift, whether your gift is made during or after life, and the financial/tax benefits you can receive.

If you have questions about making a planned gift or would like more information, we are happy to work with you or your advisor to help craft a gift that meets your personal and financial goals. Together, we can change lives by ensuring the highest quality health care is available to our community, both now and in the years to come.

Honor a Caregiver


Sometimes, if we’re lucky, a gift will come out of a bad situation. When it means a second chance at life, Peter Hogenson is determined to take advantage of his gift and devote himself to caring for others.


"Everyone from the triage nurses to the a la carte staff were fantastic, but three people made our stay exceptional. Jen, our labor and delivery nurse, Toni, the NAC, and Amy, the night RN on the postpartum unit."


"The level of care they give is like no other. Words cannot express the gratitude that we have toward Dr. Foltz and his team. We just don’t know what we would do without them!"


"I now know that cancer treatment doesn't have to be negative. That the care you receive is not just medical but it the compassion that goes along with it."


"I would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses at Swedish NICU. We will never forget our experience at Swedish Medical Center for the rest of our lives. We are so grateful to have our daughter doing well and home with us today. We always recommend Swedish to our friends and family whenever we get the chance."
