We need your help

Today more than ever the U.S. health care system is strained. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 50.7 million Americans do not have health care insurance and are ineligible for Medicare or Medicaid. The recession, compounded by an aging population and a growth in chronic illnesses such as diabetes, means that clinics are needed more than ever. The new healthcare reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), is expected to reduce the number of non-elderly uninsured adults, however plenty of uninsured individuals will remain, as many as 23 million in 2019.

Bequests & planned giving including a charitable gift in your will

Including a charitable gift in your will, known as making a charitable bequest, is a nice way to ensure that some of the things you find important in your life are able to continue after your death. Bequests can be made for any amount and they can also be the donation of an item (for example: a camera, computer, dental chair, car, building, etc.). Another nice thing about bequests is that they are easy to include in a will.

Over the years the Chesapeake Care has gratefully received donations in the form of a bequest, as varied as a computer, a small amount of money, and at least two have been in the tens of thousands of dollars. All have gone directly toward improving the health of people in need. Your donation, and donations from others in the community, allow Chesapeake Care Clinic to continue to operate.

Writing a Will or Adding a Bequest to an Existing Will

Making a bequest requires a little advance planning. Because a will is an important legal document, you may wish to consider consulting an attorney, even if just to review your work.

If you have already made a provision for the Chesapeake Care Clinic in your estate plans, we thank you for your generosity.

Donations from grants, state and local funding, and donations from businesses, organizations and individuals allow us to continue to provide accessible health care to people in need. State and local funding cuts make your donation more important than ever. Thank you for your help!
