Planned Gifts and Bequests

Every contribution is a way for the donor to reinforce their values. Contributions help tell the story of the donor’s life. Regardless of the amount or the age of the donor, it showcases those causes that helped the donor, and it often passes those values down to the next generation.

One of the most effective methods to pass down values is through a bequest. A bequest helps create a legacy for the donor and for the organization. At Fenway we recognize these generous folks while they are still with us through our Legacy Society.

Planning your Legacy

There is a range of ways you can help ensure Fenway’s long-term financial security and ability to serve the LGBTQIA+ community far into the future. Please reach out to us and/ or review this worksheet with your attorney to start ensuring your legacy.


A planned gift can provide value right away, while the donor is still with us. Our Legacy Society enables us to recognize our planned gift donors with various events, and public recognition. These techniques often inspire others and bring attention to specific programs that serve our community.

Additional things to consider when planning your legacy contribution:

When you donate long-term appreciated securities to Fenway Health, you can claim the full value of the gift as a charitable deduction.

Gifts of securities — such as individual stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares — can benefit both you and Fenway Health. A gift of securities has tax benefits that increase the value of your gift, which may allow you to make a larger gift than if you first sold the securities and then donated the net proceeds.

For assistance or questions in making a gift please contact Development at [email protected] or 617.927.6350.
