What’s Your Plan?
A planned gift will show your support for Stillwater Medical and help meet your financial goals. You may actually increase the size of your estate as well as reduce the tax burden on your heirs.
Stillwater Medical Center has been here for decades, caring for generations of families. More help will be needed to provide the best care as our community grows. You can create a living legacy and provide high-quality care for friends and family.

Donating stock directly to a charity is one of the most tax-smart ways to give as it eliminates the capital gains tax.

DONOR SPOTLIGHT Lynn and Joe Hughes
Lynn and Joe Hughes made a provision for the Stillwater Medical Foundation through a trust they created simplifying the future transfer of assets from them to SMF and others they plan to support.
Married in 1973, the Hughes called Stillwater their home during their 36 year union.
Lynn and Joe were both very appreciative of Stillwater Medical Center and every person who impacted their lives throughout his bout with cancer. Joe passed away in 2009.
Lynn felt even better about their plan when she learned of the Cancer Center expansion that was completed in 2018. She knows the estate plans that she and Joe made will help others who may one day walk in their shoes.
