Securing the Rex mission for rising generations

Rex Legacy Circle

The Rex Legacy Circle, the foundation’s planned giving society, recognizes those thoughtful donors who have generously included in Rex in their estate plans by creating special legacies. For rising generations, they carry forward the vision of John Rex (1771–1839), whose kind bequest 175 years ago led to the founding of Rex Hospital.

Planned giving makes a meaningful difference in the future growth and vitality of Rex. Members of the Legacy Circle ensure that Rex will flourish for generations to come.

Join the Legacy Circle

Leaving a legacy doesn’t mean you have to be wealthy. There are many options for planned giving to Rex, including these examples.

  • • Make an impact after your lifetime by including Rex Healthcare in your will or revocable trust.
  • • Designate Rex Healthcare as a beneficiary in your retirement plan.
  • • Name Rex Healthcare as a beneficiary or owner of a life insurance policy.
  • • Establish a trust.
  • • Assign gifts of securities or property to be made over time, during your lifetime.

Members of the Legacy Circle are recognized in the foundation’s annual Gratitude Report and at special foundation events.
