Your Legacy Giving
Transforms Healthcare
Through Gift Planning

Welcome to the Gift and Legacy Planning section of the McLeod Health Foundation website!

Your Legacy gifts provide far more than financial resources. They give hope. They give compassion.

Thoughtful estate and gift planning allows an individual to take care of themselves,
their loved ones and the causes that were important to them during their lifetime.

There are several factors to consider. If you are not familiar with the concepts and strategies of charitable gift planning,
you might want to take a moment to consider some of the factors in planning for the future.

And check out our chart that briefly describes some of the charitable means that are available to you – see How Can I Give.

We at McLeod Health Foundation would be most honored to be a part of your future plans.  All Legacy gifts qualify the donor for membership in the Dr. F. H. McLeod Legacy Society.

If you would like more information about us, or if we can help in any way,
please feel free to call or e-mail Roxanna Prezioso at (843) 777-2694.

Thank you for your consideration of support for the McLeod Health Foundation.

  • A Love Letter for McLeod Legacies

    We all want a place where our life stories matter … our voices heard … our work is celebrated … our failures embraced … our hopes unleashed. A place where we can use our energies and resources to truly impact others. Thirty-seven years ago, as a newlywed, I was lured from Greenville, SC, by my husband, Rob, to work here in our early twenties.

  • Growing a Legacy at McLeod

    Dr. Jay and Ellen Pearson have been active members of the Florence community since 1978. Born and raised in Columbia, the two traveled across the country for Dr. Pearson’s general surgery residency, which he completed in Seattle, Washington.

  • Making a Lasting Inheritance

    Wyman and Callie Wise live in North Myrtle Beach where they each own a State Farm Insurance Agency. It’s a home with a little competition to say the least, but with a heart focused on the same goal – to increase the quality of life in their local community. As State Farm agents, they believe in giving back to local philanthropic organizations that make their community a better place to live.

  • Couple Creates Dual Legacies With Gift

    Boone and Robin Aiken are lifelong Florence natives. Both were born in the McLeod Infirmary, and both have dedicated large portions of their lives to making their city and its hospital better places. Now, they are leaving a legacy that will impact the lives of McLeod patients for years to come.

  • A Unique Perspective on Hospice Care

    In 2006, as he sat on the tarmac in Atlanta preparing himself for takeoff, Dr. Trey Bishara received a frantic call from his father. Doctors at a hospital in Charleston had informed Trey’s mother, who was suffering from terminal recurrent breast cancer, that there was nothing more they could do for her. She was being discharged – on a Saturday — and Trey’s father reached out to his son for help.
