There is no finer gift than one that offers health and hope to others.
As you plan for your future you make several important decisions. One of those carefully planned decisions may be to create a lasting impact through a legacy gift. Legacy giving is a meaningful way to make a difference that will endure beyond your lifetime, impacting the lives of generations to come.
Consider including St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation in your estate plans to ensure health and healing for generations to come.
As we approach our 20 year anniversary, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation initiated a strategic planning effort to evaluate how philanthropy can best serve our community, given the changing healthcare environment, and our growing and diversified community. In the spring of 2019, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation invited 3000 community members to participate in a “Community Interest Survey”. St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation supporters, St. Luke’s Wood River Staff and patients were invited to take part. The information will be used by the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation Board to guide our strategic planning process. We look forward to sharing more with you later this year.
