Planned Giving

Your Contribution, Our Future.
Let us help you tailor your charitable gift to your financial, tax or estate planning goals.

About Bequests

You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust and is one of the most flexible ways you can make a transformational gift to support what you care about to create a lasting legacy of generosity. 

IRA Charitable Rollover

An IRA rollover allows people age 70 1/2 and older to help support our organization by making a gift directly from their IRA. When you give directly from your IRA to the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation, you will give the gift of hope to heart patients while reducing your taxable income, and your gift could satisfy your required minimum distribution for the year. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make your rollover gift.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A philanthropic giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you and allows you to grant funds to charities of your choice. If you have a donor advised fund, you can recommend a gift or grant be made to the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation through your DAF sponsor.

A new treatment for leaky tricuspid valves has been approved by the FDA. This new therapy is available for patients living with the debilitating effects of tricuspid regurgitation. We were proud to be a leading clinical site led by Global PI Dr. Paul Sorajja and the MHIF research team who contributed significant data to the pivotal trial – and going back to the first patient to have access to this technology through research.
