Planned Giving

Planning for the Future...

Planned gifts and bequests have made a significant difference for UPMC Cole's patients, from gifts of land that our facility resides on today, to financial donations that have advanced our medical equipment and services.

The Cole Foundation appreciates the generosity and foresight of people like you who wish to shape the future of health care in the community while leaving a lasting legacy.  We invite you to donate a planned gift of any size.

Your planned gift can take many forms, including:

  • Gifts of stocks, bonds, and real estate
  • Gift annuities
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement assets
  • Establishment of a Trust or Endowment Fund
  • A bequest in a Will

Besides the tax advantages allowed by law, the Cole Foundation recognizes donors for making a positive impact in the lives of others for years to come. As always, we encourage you to discuss your plans with your attorney or financial advisor.

Please contact the Cole Foundation, at 814-274-5520 or, if you have any questions about planned giving. We will be glad to meet to discuss your specific goals and wishes.

“Over the years we have watched and been part of the Foundation's growth and support of our community. Every penny earned, raised, or donated will be put back into our local community and facilities to better the healthcare availability and options, and to make things more comfortable for patients. Through the Foundation's initiatives and fundraisers, patients and family members here at UPMC Cole can enjoy a kinder, more comfortable, and more sophisticated healthcare experience.”
