Planned Gifts

Planned gifts to Haymarket Center help future generations access life-saving care, while also creating a donor’s own legacy. In addition to making a significant impact for Haymarket patients, these gifts may have tax benefits for the donor or their loved ones. Haymarket Center accepts deferred gifts made through bequests, and life insurance and retirement plans.

Named in honor of our founder, the Father Mac Legacy Society recognizes those who make financial plans of any amount to benefit Haymarket in the future. Donors in the society help to carry out Father Mac’s visionary approach to ensure patients receive evidence-based treatment, combined with support services to treat the whole person.


Bequests are an easy and meaningful way to have a lasting impact by including a provision for Haymarket Center in your will or estate plans.  In addition to supporting an organization you care about, bequests also provide tax benefits through avoidance of capital gains taxes and a deduction for your estate. You can designate a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate or residual to Haymarket Center.

To make Haymarket Center a part of your legacy, please use the following sample language in your estate plans:

“I hereby give ____________ (percentage, residuary share or specific amount or asset) to McDermott Center dba Haymarket Center 932 W. Washington Blvd, Chicago, IL 60607 (Tax ID# 23-7249912) for Haymarket’s general use and purpose.”
