"We appreciated the gift immensely," said Scott Showers, director of Development and Operations for the foundation. "It will certainly help us accomplish our mission. But we felt somewhat cheated because we never had the opportunity to express our gratitude to her for such kindness before her death.

"We didn't know we were in her estate plan, so we were unable to let her know how much her gift meant. We would have loved to say 'thank you.'"

If you plan to include the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation in your estate plans, Foundation staff also would be happy to send you a helpful brochure on the topic. It's worth reading whether or not you choose to make a future gift to the foundation.

"If we know that the foundation is in your estate plan, we can not only express our appreciation, we also can make sure you're kept up to date with developments and progress within the John C. Lincoln Health Network," Showers said.

If you'd like to talk with someone personally about your giving plans, please contact the foundation at 602-331-7860.
