Gift Planning

With thoughtful planning, you have the power to make a difference in the community.

There are many creative ways in which you can meet both your personal planning and charitable giving objectives. Every new planned gift strengthens Equitas Health’s ability to deliver high impact prevention, health and wellness services for those at risk of or affected by HIV/AIDS, for the LGBTQ community and for those who experience medical disparities and want/need access to the highest quality healthcare.


Donate through Investment

Your gift will enable us to be the gateway to good health for so many who cannot afford it on their own.

[accordion]Through your investment, Equitas Health can be an innovative leader today and advance its mission to offer a welcoming healthcare home to those in need in our community. By working with you and your advisors, Equitas Health will ensure that your philanthropy not only maximizes the benefits of available tax incentives, but creates a lasting and impactful legacy.

Donate to the Endowment Fund

Endowments exist in perpetuity and are a great way to honor the memory of a loved one or a living person. Your gift allows you to have a significant impact on Equitas Health’s future by helping to provide an ongoing income.

An endowment fund has been established at the Columbus Foundation to benefit Equitas Health. Your gift to this endowment will be invested, and the income will provide general operating support to where the need is the greatest.

A planned gift to the fund will create a living legacy for you and your family. It will touch all of Equitas Health, including critical life-sustaining services and prevention, education, and advocacy programs.

Gifts of all amounts make a difference and are welcome.

We are forever grateful for all types of gifts. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your personal advisors to determine if one or more planned giving arrangements are appropriate for you. All inquiries and communications are held in strictest confidence and are without obligation.
