Legacy Society Membership

Your invitation to join The Legacy Society of Good Samaritan Hospital

Securing the future of health care

Good Samaritan Hospital emerged as leading medical center made possible by the support of forward-thinking community members who over the years have embraced our mission and given generously to see it succeed. Today, Good Samaritan Hospital has blossomed into a comprehensive medical center, ranked as one of the 50 best hospitals in the nation for a third year in a row.

You now have the opportunity to join these leaders and past donors, creating your own legacy for Good Samaritan Hospital. Charitable giving ensures that Good Samaritan Hospital's unique mission continues, allowing us to take more extraordinary steps into the future.

The prestigious Legacy Society is an association of concerned individuals who are leaving a legacy that will foster medical excellence for many years to come. The Legacy Society honors special friends of Good Samaritan who have made a provision in their wills or estate plans to support the future growth and development of health care.

Membership in the Legacy Society is open to individuals who inform us that they have provided for Good Samaritan Hospital in their wills or trusts, or through other planned/deferred gift options. Many planned giving options offer substantial benefits to donors from bequests that reduce estate taxes to trusts that preserve income for retirement, often with substantial income or capital gains savings advantages.
  • Charitable Bequest of a Retirement Plan
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Gifts of Real Estate
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Memorial and Tribute Endowments

Benefits of membership include:
  • Free hospital parking and 24/7 assistance phone line
  • Invitations to exclusive events
  • Membership certificate

In addition, Legacy Society members are recognized in Hospital publications (unless they wish to remain anonymous). Major estate gift donors also qualify for recognition on donor walls and plaques in the Hospital.

Good Samaritan Hospital is truly grateful to those who, through thoughtful estate planning, are fostering medical excellence for many years to come. These generous individuals are creating a true legacy of care. Through their partnership in our future, these treasured friends of the hospital are making a lasting contribution to the quality of life in Los Angeles.
