 In Memoriam and Planned Giving

Everyone wants to be remembered in some capacity after they pass. Did you know that you can create a lasting legacy for yourself or a loved one while ensuring the future of local healthcare? The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation is unique in that it raises funds for three key healthcare partners, including the Valley Manor long term care home, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and Madawaska Valley Hospice.

While you can choose to donate to any one of our healthcare partners, you will make the greatest impact by directing funds generally to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. This will give the Foundation the flexibility it needs to ensure funds are directed where they are needed, and when they are needed, the most.

By designating In Memoriam donations to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation, purchasing an element on the In Memory Mural, or assigning a gift to the Foundation in your will, you are providing future generations access to local healthcare.
