Donor Stories

Former McKendree Village Foundation board member Suevelyn Peters made a legacy gift to the Foundation with a Charitable Gift Annuity.

"A Charitable Gift Annuity gives me an excellent rate of return while living and leaves a "living" legacy to McKendree Village Foundation after I have passed on."








Mr & Mrs Charlie Reich include McKendree Village Foundation in Their Estate Plans

Asked why they included McKendree Village Foundation in their estate plans, Mr. Reich replied, "There are many reasons for doing this and I'll briefly cover a few.  My Mom and Dad moved into the Towers (Independent Living) 40+ years ago.  My Mom lived in the Manor (Assisted Living), until her death and was very well taken care of daily. When I brag on McKendree, I always try to say they took care of my Mom, by making sure she ate, took her medicines as prescribed and helped her keep clean, but also importantly they CARED for her personally.  I sincerely do really appreciate the staff and management.  Saying Thank You was Not Sufficient, so I'm trying to also show my thanks through the Foundation".
