Recognizing donor generosity
Carle Center for Philanthropy has established giving clubs to honor those who make a gift to Carle. Gifts may be unrestricted, benefiting Carle’s greatest need at the time, or restricted to a particular area. Members of these giving clubs often serve as inspiration to others; however, we also understand that anonymity may be preferred. The reporting year for Carle’s giving clubs is January 1 to December 31.

Margaret Carle Morris Society
Investing in a healthier tomorrow
The Margaret Carle Morris Society is a group of people who are committed to making a difference by ensuring Carle’s future. Through their decision to make a future gift to Carle, these individuals have confirmed their commitment to being part of a longstanding tradition of giving that keeps Carle strong.
A commitment to make a future gift can be made in many ways. Examples include making a charitable bequest under a will, giving property to Carle or setting up a charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity. Donors can even specify how they want their gift allocated.
Members share in the joy of knowing that they are making a significant impact by enhancing Carle’s facilities and programs in medical care, education and research. We honor these gifts to Carle by listing Margaret Carle Morris Society member names on special plaques on our donor wall and by offering special updates and invitations to society members.
