Beyond cash: stock, IRAs, DAFs, bequests, vehicles

When you make a gift, your generosity lives on. You’ll provide life-saving medical care to people in crisis long into the future.

Including Medical Teams International in your will or estate plan may also help you receive tax benefits and achieve your charitable giving goals.

Here are some of the many ways you can save lives through your gift:

Hope for the Future Society

Please let us know if you have already included Medical Teams International in your will or estate plan so we can thank you! We’d love to invite you to join our Hope for the Future Society.

Donors who have included Medical Teams International in their estate plans are invited to be Hope for the Future Society members. Your thoughtful planning will touch the lives of people in crisis around the world. Imagine the impact you will have on a single mother’s life if you spare her the heartache of losing a child. Or the health and hope you will give a refugee who has lost everything. On behalf of the people whose lives you will impact, thank you.

Benefits for Hope for the Future Society members include:

  • An annual luncheon in your honor
  • A report of our programs that goes out to our leading donors
  • Special recognition, including your name listed on a wall at our international headquarters in Portland (unless you wish to remain anonymous)
