Securing a Legacy of Compassionate Care: Explore Planned Giving with The Parmelee Society

Your will or estate plan is a testament to your values and aspirations. For many, the inclusion of charitable giving in these plans is a powerful way to contribute to a better world for future generations.
Planned Gifts come in various sizes, ranging from $1,000 to $1,000,000 or more, providing individuals with diverse options for making a lasting impact. These options include making a bequest, utilizing retirement plan assets, exploring charitable gift annuities, donating real estate, or even using stocks and mutual funds for charitable contributions.

The Parmelee Society: Honoring Your Commitment to Community Health

The Parmelee Society is a distinguished group that recognizes and honors individuals who have chosen to include Monadnock Community Hospital (MCH) in their will or estate plan. Embracing a legacy that spans a hundred years, this society embodies a commitment to supporting community healthcare, mirroring the spirit of philanthropy displayed by Mr. Robert Parmelee in 1919.
Mr. Parmelee’s legacy began when he generously donated his summer home to the town of Peterborough, establishing the inaugural “Peterboro Hospital” in memory of his late wife, Alice. Today, the Parmelee Society carries forward this tradition of altruism.

A Tradition of Appreciation and Recognition: Benefits of Including MCH in your Will or Estate Planning

As a valued member of The Parmelee Society, you will experience a host of benefits, including a special invitation to our annual Parmelee Society reception. This exclusive event provides an opportunity to connect with our hospital leaders and Trustees, fostering a sense of community among like-minded individuals dedicated to advancing healthcare in the Monadnock Region.
In addition to the reception, Parmelee Society members are duly recognized in our Annual Report and prominently displayed on our giving wall in the main lobby. This public acknowledgment serves as a testament to your commitment and inspires others to follow in your philanthropic footsteps.
