Right from the very start, a heart for philanthropy and a vision for quality, compassionate care have guided Munson Healthcare as it has become one of the leading health care providers in the country.

Support Our Mission

Our beginnings can be traced to James Decker Munson, MD who donated a Traverse City boarding house for use as a community hospital in 1915.

How Your Gift Helps

When you make a gift through your estate plan, you are ensuring a legacy of health. If you choose, your gift can also be made as a tribute to honor a family member or special person in your life.

Benefits of Giving

A gift plan can provide you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. A planned gift today can save you headaches tomorrow.
