President’s Message – January 2020

Categories: President's Message

The start of a new year – and especially a new decade – is typically full of reflection and personal resolutions. This year, you might place getting your legal affairs in order at the top of your resolutions list. Everyone needs a legal will, but fewer than 30% of people have one because it can seem scary, complicated, or expensive.

Bridgeport Hospital Foundation has partnered with FreeWill, a service that helps you prepare for your future. In less than 25 minutes, you can make a fully valid legal will that can be changed or updated at any time. This is a great option if you have a straightforward estate, and can also help you get started, then find an attorney for more complex needs.

Including a gift in your estate to Bridgeport Hospital Foundation will ensure future generations access to the safest, highest-quality and most innovative medical care available in our region. This tool is free to you, whether you choose to include a gift to the Foundation or not, and will help guide you through planning your will.
