Planned Giving

Planning for your future entails making many 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.

We invite you to create your legacy today by joining St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation’s Legacy Society. Legacy Society members are those extraordinary individuals who shape the future by including the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation in their estate plans and inspire others to become leaders in legacy giving.

Donors are invited to become Legacy Society members by informing us that they have made or intend to make an estate gift that includes the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation. Informing us of your estate planning intentions comes with no obligations, but it does help us assist you in fulfilling your philanthropic goals.

If you have included the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to honor you, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood, assist you through our Friends of the Hospital program and welcome you to our Legacy Society.

We are here to help with your legacy giving questions. Please contact Betsy Mullins at (208) 727-8412 or for more information.

*In memoriam

Unlike cash donations, estate gifts typically require the assistance of a professional advisor, as they involve gifts of personal assets rather than disposable income. The St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation has teamed up with Thompson & Associates, a national estate planning firm with over 20 years of experience, to offer charitable estate planning services to St. Luke’s friends and families. Estate planning experts at Thompson & Associates will work with you to find the planned giving option that best suits your personal needs while furthering your philanthropic goals. This service is complimentary, and the meetings between you and the consultant are confidential.

For more information or to schedule an appointment with Thompson & Associates, contact Betsy Mullins at (208) 727-8412 or
