Become a Member of the Legacy Society
The Legacy Society has been established for donors who wish to make a planned or estate gift to CVIM.   Unless specified otherwise by our donors, these gifts are invested to assure that a source of funds will be available in the future of CVIM.

CVIM has three funds that offer a variety of opportunities to sustain our mission and promote growth of services in the future.

  • The Gordon B. Hattersley, Jr. Unrestricted Endowment—Interest may be used for general support
  • The Edgar R. Lawrence DDS Dental Endowment—Restricted support for dental programs
  • Hope Chest Fund– Principle may be used for future growth, capital improvements, general sustainability of mission and services.

The most common way to make a planned gift is through a Will or a Trust that takes effect after the donor’s death.  A bequest results in an estate tax deduction as it reduces the size of the donor’s estate for tax purposes.  A bequest gift to CVIM can be for a percentage, dollar amount, or the remainder of a donor’s estate. The legal name that should be used in a Will is Community Volunteers in Medicine, Inc.

Other planned gift vehicles include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts and gifts through retirement assets.  Donors should contact the CVIM development office to receive detailed information on these opportunities by emailing dmahal@cvim.org or calling 610-836-5990, ext 108.
