The 1919 Society: Planning Today

Making your choice for a lasting legacy...

society 1919Foundation Board member Charlie Townsend and his wife, Daphne, are steadfast supporters of Princeton HealthCare System. In addition to their generous gifts and patronage at Auxiliary events, they both have served with distinction as volunteers. Daphne has given more than 2,800 hours as an adult volunteer, and through the Blood Donor Program has given 11 gallons of blood. Charlie has served on the Board of Directors of Princeton HealthCare System since 1993 and on the Foundation Board since 1989.

"Since Princeton HealthCare System is so important to us today, we want to be sure that part of the legacy we leave to our community will help others in the future. That is why we have made a provision for Princeton HealthCare System in our wills. Making that decision was easy and making it happen was even easier. We encourage anyone else who values the healthcare we have in our community to ask their estate lawyer or planning advisor about making a bequest to Princeton HealthCare System."
