The Heritage Society
Members of the Heritage Society are donors who have created a lasting legacy through a planned gift. Whether through the creation of a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, naming Suburban Hospital in a will, or designating retirement assets or life insurance proceeds to Suburban, these acts demonstrate a commitment to our mission — to serve the healthcare needs of our community throughout the ages.
Members of the Heritage Society are honored guests at an annual luncheon hosted by Suburban Hospital's president and are also invited to special events throughout the year. Members also enjoy recognition with an engraved plaque on the Heritage board in the hospital lobby.
Please let us know if you have provided for Suburban Hospital in your will or estate plan so that we can welcome you into the Heritage Society. Of course, if you wish to remain anonymous we will protect and honor your privacy.
Always rely on your attorney or other qualified advisors to guide you through the estate planning process. For more information, contact the Suburban Hospital Foundation at 301-896-3971.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.
You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Suburban Hospital as a lump sum.
