The Prisma Health Upstate Foundation Legacy Society recognizes the generous intentions of our most forward-thinking, philanthropic supporters – those who build their legacies by making a planned gift, a provision in their estate plan, or an endowment gift of $25,000 or more to benefit Prisma Health-Upstate.
Legacy Society members receive updates on the programs they support, invitations to private events, opportunities to meet with Prisma Health leaders, physicians that benefit from their generosity, and more. If you haven’t already, please consider becoming a member of the Legacy Society. Your gift will help us go beyond the ordinary to deliver the exceptional healthcare experience that every patient and family deserves.
Prisma Health–Upstate Foundation Legacy Society Impact
Heaton Smith is a legacy planning firm that has worked with Prisma Health-Upstate donors for more than seven years. Our Heaton Smith consultant, Dave Smith, guides donors through their values-based legacy planning process, helping donors determine their family, financial and philanthropic legacies. Heaton Smith makes specific legacy goal recommendations that are reviewed and implemented by donors’ existing advisors. Importantly, Heaton Smith’s planning is a no-cost service that the Upstate Foundation offers to our donors, and they do not sell any products. We would welcome an opportunity to schedule an introductory meeting for you to learn more about Heaton Smith’s expertise and the Prisma Health Legacy Society. Contact us by email Giving@PrismaHealth.org or calling 864-797-7746.
