Hospice East Bay's Legacy Society

Our Legacy Society honors those who have included Hospice East Bay in their estate plans. Through their generosity, these individuals ensure our mission will continue long into the future. Society members receive regular updates on our programs and services. We also gather once a year over an elegant lunch at the Orinda Country Club to meet with our CEO and Board Chair.

To be included as a member of the Legacy Society, simply inform us of your planned gift over the phone or by downloading and returning our Notification of Planned Gift form.

If you would like more information about making a Legacy Gift, please contact Mats Wallin at (925) 887-5678, or visit our Planned Giving page.
