Lifetime Donor Recognition

1881 Legacy Society

The 1881 Legacy Society will be reserved for those individuals who have notified us that they have included Oswego Health as a beneficiary in their estate planning; who, during their lifetime executed a planned gift for Oswego Health; or who in passing leave a gift to Oswego Health not previously identified. All current members of the Fred Barnes Society and any other legacy donors will be immediately recognized as part of the new 1881 Legacy Society and all benefits accruing to Society members will apply.

Recognition and Benefits:

  • Upon notification donors will receive an 1881 Legacy Society lapel pin identifying them a member of the Legacy Society; gifts or notifications received after passing will not receive a pin.
  • The donors name will be placed on the 1881 Legacy Society donor recognition wall.
  • Invitation to Annual Donor Reception if gift made prior to passing
  • Gifts valued at $25,000 and above made prior to passing may have a naming opportunity to be discussed individually.

Annual Donor Recognition

Gifts of $5,000 or more made to Oswego Health in a calendar year will be considered major gifts in the year they are given/pledged. These gifts may be an Annual Fund gift or a gift designated to a specific campaign. These gifts do not include special events. For recognition purposes Annual Fund or undesignated gifts will give the donor membership to the Circle of Life and they will receive the recognition benefits accruing to the level of the gift. Gifts designated to a specific campaign will have the recognition benefits accruing to that campaign, if applicable, and will also be recognized as Circle of Life gifts in the year they are made. Circle of Life membership runs from January through December of each year.
