Heritage Society (formerly Tau Society)
Anyone who includes a Virginia Mason Franciscan Health foundation, hospital, facility or program — in his or her estate plan becomes a member of the Heritage Society. These donors have made provisions for Virginia Mason Franciscan Health in their estate plans, such as a will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan or irrevocable pledge, or through a life-income gift, such as a gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. These gifts ensure that financial resources are available to meet the health care needs of future generations.
