Planned Giving 

 Why leave a legacy to the Foundation? 

By leaving a planned gift to Riverside Foundation for Health Care, you are doing something extraordinary for yourself, your community, your family and friends. Doing so is one of the simplest and most rewarding ways for a donor to leave a lasting impact on local health care. Your decision to leave a gift will help ensure that quality care close to home is always available to those in need for generations to come.

Say Thank You: There is no better way to show gratitude for the care you or a loved one received at one of the Riverside Health Care sites. Leaving a planned gift will help us continue offering exceptional care to others for years to come.

Leave more to those you love: Leaving a gift in your will for Riverside Foundation will lessen the tax burden on your loved ones when transferring your estate. As charitable donations that you specify in your will are eligible for the donation tax credit in your final income tax return that will be filed by your executors.

Keep the Foundation strong for the future: Riverside Health Care is continually planning for a future of better care with sate-of-the-art equipment, facility updates and new technologies. Your gift will help the Foundation provide a healthier future for generations to come.

Leave your legacy in hands you trust: The Foundation is governed by an exceptional volunteer board of directors dedicated to bringing quality health care to the Rainy River District. They give generously of their time and energy to set the highest standards for governance, accountability and performance. You can take confidence in knowing that your gift will be handled with the best of care.
