The VGH Health Care Foundation Legacy Circle is a partnership of supporters who have contributed to the Tradition of Giving established by Virginia Walcutt Gay when she gave the city of Vinton $50,000 ($1,000,000 in today’s valuation) to build a hospital. Each Legacy Circle contributor has given $10,000 or more to support the mission of Virginia Gay Hospitals and Clinics. Some of these gifts have been cash, many of them were gifts from people who included the hospital in their estate plans. Bequests through wills and trusts, annuity plans, or life insurance arrangements are all commonly used vehicles for leaving gifts to the Virginia Gay Hospital Health Care Foundation. The Legacy Circle partnership recognizes donors who have made a gift as outlined above and will include friends who have notified us of an inclusion in their estate planning.
