The Legacy Society

The Pardee Hospital Foundation invites you to join our esteemed group of donors in The Legacy Society. Consisting of donors who establish a planned gift or bequest to the Pardee Hospital Foundation, The Legacy Society fulfills the mission of our hospital in offering the best healthcare to our Western North Carolina communities.

With a planned gift you not only reap considerable financial and tax benefits, but, more importantly, you ensure that your friends, family, and neighbors continue to receive critical, life-saving care. 

Every gift to the Foundation becomes part of a legacy tracing back 60 years to Pardee Hospital’s founding. Decades from now, your gift will demonstrate to others that our community truly cared about their local hospital.

In Making a Bequest Remember to 

1) State the Pardee Foundation’s legal title and physical address:

Pardee Memorial Hospital Foundation, Inc. 

561 Fleming St.

Hendersonville, NC 28739


2) Include the Pardee Foundation’s IRS number

(please contact us for the information)

3) Describe your gift:

You may choose to give a sum of money or a percentage of your estate.

It is strongly recommended that you consult with your attorney or estate planner when considering your planned gift. The Foundation staff has worked with many local attorneys and financial advisors to accomplish the intentions of our donors.
