A life well lived leaves behind a wealth of legacies. Consider a legacy of compassion, commitment and generosity toward people and an organization that has special meaning for you. By becoming a cherished member of the Bethesda Legacy Society, you’re creating a legacy that’s profound, essential and enduring.

Beginning with an annual gift of $500 or more, or confirmation that you’ve named Bethesda as a beneficiary in your estate plans, membership in the Bethesda Legacy Society empowers you to direct your support to the Bethesda communities and services of your choice. Among the choices are enhancing any of our  senior living communities, developing innovative senior programs, providing financial support to residents who outlive their means to pay, or improving the quality of life and health of seniors.

The ongoing financial support of our donors allow us to fulfill this commitment.

There are a wide range of membership rewards for being part of the Legacy Society, including our annual appreciation luncheon, a unique thank-you gift, access to Bethesda senior care experts, and health screenings, special recognitions and a tax deduction as allowed by law.

You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing you’ve improved the lives of countless grateful individuals, many of whom couldn’t continue to enjoy the comforts and security of living in a Bethesda community without your generosity and support. As far as we’re concerned, that’s a Legacy anyone would be proud to have.
