What is the Trinitas Cornerstone Club?

trinitas cornerstone clubThe Trinitas Cornerstone Club honors individuals who express their commitment to health care in the community by making planned gifts to Trinitas Foundation.

The hospitals that joined to form Trinitas have a century-long tradition of providing superb care only minutes away. Recognizing this tradition, Cornerstone Club members are cementing the bricks that will support local health care for our children and grandchildren for the next century.

Cornerstone Club members have decided to invest in the future health of the community by making a bequest, creating a trust, donating property, or designing another form of planned gift. Their contributions will provide significant, lasting support for the health care programs, facilities, and services at Trinitas.

What It Does for You

What It Does for Trinitas and Our Community

Cornerstone Club gifts build our health care future. While most other gifts respond to needs during the year we receive the gift, most planned gifts are designed to produce income - and impact - for many years to come. The Cornerstone Club can:

  • Provide long-term support for community health needs you care about, like ensuring that the hospital can provide technologically advanced equipment and improve facilities
  • Build an endowment, which will improve our financial security, create reserves for quick response to emerging issues, and provide seed money for new initiatives

How to Join

You can become a member of the Trinitas Cornerstone Club by making a planned gift to the Trinitas Foundation and telling us that you made the gift. Some of the ways that you can join the Cornerstone Club are:

  • By making a bequest in your will
  • Through a life income gift, like a charitable remainder trust or a pooled income fund gift
  • With a charitable lead trust
  • By making the Foundation a beneficiary of your retirement plan
  • By making Trinitas Foundation a beneficiary of your life insurance policy
  • By a gift of real property
  • With an outright gift to the Foundation endowment of $5,000 or more
