Planned Giving

You can help ensure a bright and strong future for Foundations Health & Wholeness by remembering Foundations in your estate planning.

Create a Legacy

A legacy of care for our community’s mental health now connects the first Foundations donor – George Kress – with thousands of supporters who carry on the tradition of helping thousands of neighbors get access to life-changing mental health care. Taking care of the emotional needs of our community today and tomorrow requires addressing the issues of access and the scope of services for all life stages and wages. We know we must continue to support – and innovate – mental health care for children, adults, and families who will need us in new and different ways for decades to come. You can build on George’s legacy by removing barriers to care, broadening the reach of therapy and preventative support for more people in our community, and creating opportunities for innovative programming in the future. You can play a critical role in the health and wholeness of our community by making a life-changing legacy gift in George Kress’s spirit. By creating a legacy gift and joining George’s Legacy Society, you are part of the new revolution in mental health care for children and adults throughout our beloved community.
