What Will Your Legacy Be?

What Will Your Legacy Be?

Putman Circle Logo

For nearly 100 years, friends of Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) have made it possible for others to receive quality health care—close to home—when they need it most.
The foresight and generosity of donors who included SVHC in their estate plans have allowed SVHC to expand and improve in significant ways. These gifts continue to touch every department and program, funding new technologies, physician recruitment, nursing education, and enhanced facilities—to name a few key areas. 

Planned gifts allow you to impact the future of health care in our community without affecting your current financial situation. They come in many forms, such as a gift in your will or retirement plan, and they offer flexibility should your financial situation change.

Donors who include SVHC in their wills, trusts, estates, or other planned gifts are lifetime members of the Henry W. Putnam Circle, named for the hospital’s first benefactor. We invite you to join this distinguished group of supporters and create your own philanthropic legacy at SVHC. With your support, we can fulfill SVHC’s mission to provide exceptional care and comfort to its greatest degree.

For more information about gift planning, please contact Ann Keller of the SVHC Foundation Team at (802) 447-5017.
