Ways to Make Your Legacy Gift for a Healthy Community!
Bequest by Will: You can make a charitable gift by designating a percentage or a specific dollar amount of your estate. This type of gift qualifies for the charitable estate tax deduction.
Beneficiary Designations: Many financial accounts, CDs, mutual
funds, annuities and life insurance policies allow you to make a
charitable gift using beneficiary designations.
Appreciated Property: Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real property qualify for a charitable income tax deduction, avoid capital gains taxes and reduce potential estate taxes.
Retirement Plans: You can make a charitable gift using the beneficiary designation of your IRA, 401(K) or other retirement plan. This type of gift avoids estate and income taxation on the assets accumulated tax-free during your lifetime.
Gifts of Life: Insurance Life insurance offers flexible ways to make a charitable gift of an existing or new policy.

Gold Star Award
Although Clinic work is very mentally (& at times) physically draining and exhausting, Leora never waivers. She steps up to the plate whenever it is needed.
Leora primarily works with Dr. Bengston but has covered for her co-workers and has worked with all of the Providers at any and all of the clinics. “No” is not in Leora’s vocabulary when it comes to helping out the team.
She is VERY Compassionate to all of her patients. She has been known to even purchase gifts for new mothers out of her own pocket as a way of personally congratulating the new mommies; her own personal “extra touch” of TLC towards the patients she deals with.
Leora always shows ownership for her work, and won’t rest until the job is done, and done right! She is very respectful to her patients, her co-workers and to the Providers she works along side. Last but not least, she is very trustworthy! She is fair and truthful in all she does. Leora’s work ethics are beyond compare and she is a GEM to work with. We are so GLAD she is on our team!
