In 1909, Dr. Samuel Harrell founded Harrell Hospital and Sanatorium, which later became Riverview Health. His legacy of leadership helped secure the future for high-quality, compassionate medical care in Hamilton and Tipton counties.
To honor Dr. Harrell’s commitment to the health of his community, Riverview Health Foundation created a society in 1999 named in his honor for those who make a planned gift to Riverview Health Foundation. This special type of gift creates a legacy by which the donor can be remembered.
Planned gifts include:
Bequests—Property or money designated to Riverview Health Foundation upon death, including the designation of Riverview Health Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account.
Charitable remainder trust—An irrevocable trust that generates a potential income stream for you or your beneficiaries for a period of time with the remaining assets given to Riverview Health Foundation.
When a planned gift is given to Riverview Health Foundation Endowment Fund, the original gift amount will remain in the fund and a percentage (4-5 percent) of the total balance of the fund will be used to support the long-term healthcare needs of Riverview Health.
