The Easiest Way to Impact Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic has provided hope and healing to generations of patients. A simple, flexible and versatile way to help us provide top-notch care and lead the future of medicine is through a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

By including a bequest to Mayo Clinic in your will or living trust, you ensure that we can continue to advance medical excellence and serve our patients' unique needs.
