Join our Legacy of Hope Society
The Legacy of Hope Society honors those who have made a deep commitment to the mission of the June E. Nylen Cancer Center through one or more of the following methods:
- Provision in your will or revocable trust
- Retirement plan beneficiary designation
- Life insurance policy beneficiary designation
- Life estate gift (remainder interest in real property)
The Legacy of Hope Society is a way for the Cancer Center to express appreciation to these important supporters and to help us confront the challenges of the future.
Use of your gift: The Cancer Center is governed by an 10 -member Board of Directors who review the short and long-term needs as it relates to technology, programs and services and research. If your gift is unrestricted for the greatest need, it may provide immediate benefit to the Cancer Center through needed services and technology, or it may be deposited into an endowment whose income provides essential support for all aspects of the Cancer Center. Your gift may, at the time of your death, be directed to a combination of the above. You may, however, work with Cancer Center staff if you would like to put any restrictions on your gift.
Qualifications for Membership: The Legacy of Hope Society is open to all friends of the June E. Nylen Cancer Center. To become a member, simply notify us of your intentions. There is no minimum amount required and notifying us does not create any obligation on your part. You need not reveal the amount of their legacy gift. However, levels of recognition, listed below, will honor those donors who choose to make the extent of their donation public. For record-keeping purposes, it is helpful if you furnish a copy of the portion of the will, life insurance policy or other document that pertains to your legacy gift, or just communicate your intentions.
One optional benefit of membership is the listing of your name on the official June E. Nylen Cancer Center honor roll. Recognition of your gift may well inspire generosity in others. If you wish to remain anonymous, we are happy to honor your wishes. Benefits of membership in this Club include:
- recognition on a new wall display in the Cancer Center lobby
- invitations to Cancer Center events
- receiving the Cancer Center’s newsletter
- receiving special updates on the activities of the Cancer Center
