Legacy Planning

The Fisher House Legacy Society

The Fisher House Legacy Society is a special group of donors like you who wish to ensure that the Fisher House mission continues for many generations. Including a gift in your estate to Fisher House Foundation is a powerful way to support our nation’s military heroes for decades to come. Whatever the size of your estate, you will have the personal satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to keep families connected during their loved one’s medical treatment journey.

Tell us about it.
We are grateful to all those who include Fisher House Foundation in their estate plans. Some provide additional details about their intentions, in effect documenting their generous future gifts. Reasons why bequest donors should consider doing this include:

  • Recognition - Documenting your bequest will allow Fisher House Foundation to recognize you in our Annual Report.
  • Peace of mind - Providing details about your bequest will help ensure that your wishes are met.
  • Inspiring others -  Encourage others to emulate your generosity with your public show of support.

Please understand that by documenting your bequest, you are in no way making your bequest binding or irrevocable. You still have the ability to revise your estate plan if your circumstances change, although we do ask that you notify us as a courtesy if that happens.

Gift arrangements to consider.
