Remembering Community Health Care in your will
Community Health Care now includes a sentence on all pledge forms that reads: "I have remembered Community Health Care in my will." Next to it is a box to check. By checking this box, you will become a member of the Community Health Care Legacy Society
Why join the Legacy Society?
First, it is a testimony to your confidence in the present and future work of the organization. It is a statement of trust that Community Health Care will continue to meet these needs in the future years. It is an expression of gratitude for the mission that is being undertaken by the staff to provide the highest quality health care with compassionate and accessible service for all.
Second, your declaration encourages others to consider making beyond-life gifts to Community Health Care. It says to potential contributors, "We know the need for quality, affordable health care in Pierce County will continue to be great, and that Community Health Care can manage such gifts and use them to the benefit of patients."
Third, it gives Community Health Care the opportunity to express its gratitude to you as a future estate donor during your lifetime; and even, when appropriate, to explore with you how you want your future gift used. Often, when we know of this intent, it is possible to open more giving possibilities than you had previously considered.
Finally, letting us know your intention says that you recognize the integrity and confidentiality of Community Health Care. We will not ask for information you do not wish to give. We respect your privacy and wishes whether you wish to tell us the amount of your intended gift or just of your intention to support Community Health Care with a future gift.
Please let us know that you are thinking about supporting our work with patients who have the least resources in our community. Just email us with the message,"Yes I intend to put Community Health Care in my will—please send me information on how to do so."
