The Legacy Society

An Invitation to Join The Legacy Society

Members of The Legacy Society have expressed their commitment to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center through a very special and important form of financial support.

These donors have named Cedars-Sinai as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts, or gifts of life insurance.

Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in The Legacy Society.
