LVIM’s Heritage Society recognizes benefactors who have created a legacy of support for LVIM through a bequest provision in their will or other planned gift to sustain and enhance LVIM’s mission. Planned gifts allow donors to consider gifts larger than what would otherwise be possible through everyday income streams. By using estate and tax planning strategies to provide for charity in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate, planned gifts have the ability to carry out your personal legacy while also sustaining LVIM into the future, thereby giving Polk County’s community members the gift of good health for generations to come.
To discuss your planned giving opportunities with LVIM, please contact Director of Development & Communications, Ginny Sigle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 863.606-1552.
Through your generous support, you are helping us bring high-quality health, dental care, pharmacy and ancillary services to the working uninsured of Polk County while providing retired physicians, clinicians, and professionals opportunities to continue practicing medicine and serving others in a relaxed, caring environment.
Our average cost to provide care for one patient, including the exam and any necessary x-rays, lab work and prescriptions is $54.48 –which is less than half or more of a visit to a private physician which doesn’t include ancillary services or medication.
