The Sandy Morgan Legacy Society

Create a Legacy… of Hope, of Peace, of Comfort and Support

Planned giving consists of various ways for you to support end of life quality healthcare.

Sandy stickAnyone can create a legacy gift by naming a charity on the beneficiary form of a savings, checking, or pension account; remembering a charity in a will or living trust; or using a more complex instrument such as a charitable life-income trust.

All of these forms of legacy giving demonstrate a powerful and meaningful way for you to create a philanthropic legacy for your community and favorite cause, like Lower Cape Fear Hospice, that you care about.

While tax planning is often not the motivation behind a charitable contribution, there are many tax advantages for you to consider before making a donation. We are happy to work with you and your financial advisor.

A Gift of Lasting Beauty

Sandy Morgan was our first hospice patient in 1980. Beautiful in person and spirit, she dedicated her life to helping others by enrolling in nursing school and planning to join the Peace Corp. She was 28 years old—a vibrant artist, a dedicated volunteer, a courageous patient. Her life is a legacy.

Since her time with us, Lower Cape Fear Hospice has served thousands and thousands of patients and their families. Sandy’s spirit and her joy for life is still a part of our organization today. It is with the utmost honor and respect that we remember and celebrate her legacy through the Sandy Morgan Legacy Society.
