Estate + Planned Giving

Estate and planned gifts leave a lasting legacy of caring for family, friends, neighbors and those who will pass through our doors for generations to come.

Your legacy is our future 

Your life is your legacy, and it would be our honor if you choose to share it with one or several of our hospitals that mean something special to you. However you choose to support us, your gift will work toward a future of caring for your community. We graciously accept many kinds of estate and planned gifts such as the following that offer tax advantages and other donor benefits:


How to give

Carefully read the instructions for how to give to each hospital of your choosing.


Tufts Medical Center

William L. Saltonstall Society

William (Bill) Saltonstall embodied a generosity that allows Tufts Medical Center to provide world-class care to the people who need it, regardless of resources. It’s for this benevolent behavior that we created the William L. Saltonstall Society at Tufts Medical Center in his honor.

Friends who make the generous commitment to support Tufts Medical Center through an estate or planned gift are proudly recognized as members of the William L. Saltonstall Society. 

To create a planned gift and join the William J. Saltonstall Society, we invite you to use FreeWill’s free estate planning tool. This online resource makes it cost-free to create your estate plan and includes the necessary language to support Tufts Medical Center with a planned gift. FreeWill’s tools can also produce a list of documented wishes if you’d prefer to finalize your plan with an attorney.
