The impact of estate gifts is undeniable

By Dana R. Taylor, CFRE, Senior Director of Development, Gift and Estate Planning

As the state’s only comprehensive academic health system, the Medical University of South Carolina is dedicated to delivering the highest-quality and safest patient care while educating and training generations of outstanding health care providers and leaders to serve the people of South Carolina and beyond.

With great care, dedication, and the generous support of our philanthropic partners, we are serving the citizens of South Carolina in ways only imagined five years ago. By design, our work has spread beyond geographical lines to benefit the health and well-being of communities in every corner of the state. This monumental growth, driven by a commitment to our tripartite mission of education, research and patient care, demands that we amplify our collective impact like never before.

As a nonprofit academic health system, it’s philanthropic champions like you who empower future health care trailblazers, spark revolutionary discoveries and ensure every patient gets exceptional care. Many choose to make their mark with an estate gift – often the most significant contribution of their lives. These powerful gifts echo through generations, securing a thriving future for MUSC and those we serve.

These gifts often spring from personal experiences, or the extraordinary care a loved one has received at MUSC. Inside this newsletter, you’ll find some of these compelling testimonials. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.

We offer our deepest thanks to each donor who has shared their story. Let their voices inspire you to join us in reshaping the future of health care. Our team stands ready to engage with you in this essential conversation. It would be our honor to support you as you embark on your philanthropic journey. Remember, your legacy has the power to change what’s possible!
