Donors give millions through society

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 24, 2012) – Ten families have joined the Wade Mountz Heritage Society after making gifts totaling more than $4.85 million to the Children’s Hospital Foundation and/or Norton Healthcare Foundation. Established in 2008, the society recognizes individuals who have made irrevocable planned gifts of $100,000 or more to the foundations, which benefit the hospitals and services of Norton Healthcare and Kosair Children’s Hospital.

To date, members of the society have donated more than $29.2 million toward the future of health care in our community.

In the past few years, the Children’s Hospital Foundation and Norton Healthcare Foundation have set themselves apart by becoming national models for health care philanthropy using a model for charitable estate planning. This model allows individuals to leave a lasting legacy that will make a long-term difference.

“Members of the Wade Mountz Heritage Society are leaders in making a long-term investment in the health and wellness of our community,” said Lynnie Meyer, MSN, R.N., chief development officer, Norton Healthcare. “We know that our community will continue to have excellent and high-quality care at Kosair Children’s Hospital and Norton Healthcare because of these gifts.”

The Wade Mountz Heritage Society is named in honor of Norton Healthcare President Emeritus Wade Mountz and embodies many of his core values, such as his vision, leadership, character, commitment and integrity.

Members of the Wade Mountz Heritage Society are recognized at an annual dinner.
