Legacy planning

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Thank you for exploring the ways you can have a lasting impact on the lives of others.​

Your legacy gift to Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation can (and should) support a cause important to you. You decide if you would like to help children with cancer, families going through tough times due to a medical situation, scientists searching for new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent disease through medical research or students learning the practice of medicine so they can provide care for future generations, among many other important causes at Marshfield Clinic in need of your support.   

To help you get started:

If you decide to include a gift in your will or trust and simply need sample language to provide your attorney, we suggest the following language:

  • I give and devise to MCHS Foundation, 1000 N. Oak Avenue, Marshfield, WI 54449, the sum of $__________ (or a percentage of your estate) to be used for (state a specific fund or area of interest or "for area of greatest need").

If you include a gift to MCHS Foundation in your estate, please let us know so we can thank you and discuss your intentions with you to ensure we are able to fulfill your wishes when the time comes. Please contact us or complete and return the letter of intent form.

Individuals who include MCHS Foundation in their estate plan are eligible to join the Doege Legacy Society. The Doege Legacy Society, named for Dr. Karl W. Doege, one of the Clinic's six founding physicians and its first president, recognizes and honors those who have made a gift to support the mission through a gift (bequest) in their will or trust; naming MCHS Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement fund or bank account; entering into a charitable gift annuity with MCHS Foundation; or naming the Clinic as a beneficiary of a charitable trust.

Members of the Doege Legacy Society are recognized on the donor recognition display in the Main Lobby of the Marshfield Clinic Marshfield Center. 

Our team is here to help you accomplish your legacy goals. We would love to talk with you about the impact you wish to have and how that can be accomplished. Please contact Kar​en Piel, Gift Planning Officer in the Foundation, for assistance.
