Estate Gifts Help Secure the Future of Boca Raton Regional Hospital for Generations to Come
Although the weather in Seattle is quite different, the once-permanent home of Barbara Clanton Ackerman and Charles (Charlie) Ackerman did share something in common with Boca Raton—they were surrounded by great healthcare facilities. Hailing from the neighborhood of First Hill (also known as “Pill Hill”), Barbara and Charlie had easy access to Harborview, Swedish Medical Center, and Virginia Mason Medical Center. Now, in Boca Raton, they have access to Boca Raton Regional Hospital and all of our specialty institutes.
The Ackermans have lived part time in Boca for 30 years, and in 2013 they moved here permanently. Having treasured their time in Seattle, Barbara and Charlie both agree that the weather here in South Florida is a bit more pleasant overall, especially compared to the winters that Charlie endured while completing his degree at Cornell University.
Over the course of the past eight years, they have both been patients at Boca Regional for different reasons. Barbara stated that they have found the care to be phenomenal and the staff even better. Barbara and Charlie have always believed in giving back and making an impact, and their new affinity for our hospital led them to include a significant gift for Boca Regional in their estate plan.
After graduating from the University of Washington and working as a school teacher, Barbara understands the importance of helping where it’s needed most. For this reason, the Ackermans directed their estate gift to Boca Regional’s greatest need when it comes to fruition.
Charlie’s professional career in the stock market made it easy for him to realize that when giving back, it’s important to diversify. Soon after including Boca Regional in their estate plan, they made another generous planned gift—this time in the form of a charitable gift annuity!
Boca Raton Regional Hospital is so thankful for donors like Barbara and Charlie Ackerman who realize that our community needs a thriving healthcare facility, now and in the future. It’s because of estate gifts like theirs that Boca Regional will continue to be a preeminent healthcare organization in South Florida for many years to come.
Like the Ackermans, you can create a gift that ensures we can continue to deliver the highest-quality patient care. To learn more, please contact Michael Indiviglio at 561-955-4142 or email@example.com.
