Legacy Advisory Board

People often want to leave a lasting impact on organizations they care about, like Community Health Care. Leaving a Legacy Gift through a bequest or in an estate plan is an easy way to ensure the good work of your favorite charitable organization will continue for years to come.

This Legacy Advisory Board is comprised of professionals in fields related to estate planning. All have been practicing in their fields of law, accounting, financial planning, taxes, trust management or advanced fundraising in Pierce County for some time. These professionals are able to provide advice and guidance for individuals who would like to make a Legacy Gift to Community Health Care. They are also available to help with retirement and estate planning. We thank them for contributing their time and expertise to Community Health Care.
