How to Give

Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.

Bethesda Entrance Fee/Deposit

Bethesda's Lasting Heritage program provides our residents with an opportunity to leave their legacy by donating a portion or percentage of their refundable entrance fee or deposit. These assets, oftentimes overlooked, are a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of current and future Bethesda residents in need.

Lasting Heritage provides a meaningful way to leave your heritage in perpetuity, honor your family name, or pay tribute to friends or loved ones-all the while helping your neighbors and fellow Bethesda residents.

By using existing assets, you can easily and conveniently make a significant gift while still meeting your personal financial needs and potentially reducing your federal estate tax liability. Moreover, you do not have to commit additional funds or change your estate plans in order to participate.

Your contribution will provide stability for Bethesda's future, and allow us to continue providing superior quality care and services to the multitude of area seniors who call Bethesda home.

Residents who agree to participate in Lasting Heritage automatically become life members of the esteemed Legacy Society, and are availed opportunities that uniquely accompany this distinguished group of donors.

For more information on how you can leave your legacy to Bethesda through the Lasting Heritage program, contact the BHG Foundation at 314-800-1981, or
