It’s not what you leave; it’s what you say by leaving something. By remembering Ridgeview Foundation in your estate plan, you will create a lasting connection between you, your community, Ridgeview Medical Center and the patients and families it serves. Your planned gift can help ensure that quality, state-of-the-art health care will remain available locally for generations to come.
The Legacy Society is comprised of individuals who are so committed to the future growth of the Medical Center that they have made a planned gift to Ridgeview Foundation. Each member of this distinguished group of philanthropists has left a legacy by making an enduring, positive impact on the community.
How to Become a Member
One does not have to be wealthy or aged to begin thinking about an estate plan that includes a charitable gift. In fact, it's just as important for people with more modest estates to have a plan that will provide for the needs of their families and honor their philanthropic passions.
It is important to remember that planned giving comes in all forms and sizes. Select the method that works best for you with the realization that, over time, every gift can make a substantial difference.
If you would like to discuss philanthropic opportunities through your estate, please call Ridgeview Foundation. Our staff would be happy to meet with you and/or your preferred estate-planning professional to discuss how a planned gift can make a difference in the health of your community.
“Our goal is to help people realize the benefits of planned gifts, especially those made to Ridgeview,” explains Paul Melchert, Ridgeview Foundation Planned Giving Committee member and founding partner of Melchert Hubert Sjodin, PLLP. “We want to help people leave a personal legacy for themselves, their family, Ridgeview Medical Center and their community.”
