Planned Giving

Leave a Lasting Legacy: Planned Giving

A planned gift to Driscoll ensures happy, healthy tomorrows for children throughout South Texas. It is because of a planned gift that Driscoll Children’s Hospital is in existence today. Through foresight and planning, Clara Driscoll planned her estate so Driscoll Children’s Hospital would be created.

What to Give

There are many ways to invest in Driscoll’s future that are simple, flexible and help you accomplish both your long-term financial and charitable goals. A planned gift to Driscoll is truly a partnership that benefits the donor, Driscoll and the children we serve.


A cash gift is a simple and easy way for you to make a difference in the life of a patient at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.


A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way for you to help us bring quality healthcare to more kids.


A gift of appreciated real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can make a great contribution to Driscoll Children's Hospital.


A gift of your retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to support cutting-edge pediatric programs.


A gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is a wonderful way to support our mission of getting kids back to being kids.


A gift in your will ensures happy, healthy tomorrows for the children in our community.
