Henry Wolfe

Retired physician, Henry Wolfe, views things through the lens of 94 years of life-experience. The good and bad; joy and sorrow; missteps and success. He's run the gamut, and rightfully earned a degree of respect, appreciation and wisdom. Through the process he has learned life's lesson. So, why does someone like Dr. Wolfe, participate in Mission Hospital's Income-For-Life Charitable Gift Annuity program? His answer:

Dr. Henry Wolfe:
"It has been a little over 10 years since first participating in Mission's Gift Annuity Program. As a result of information I received from other charities, I knew about charitable gift annuities. But it wasn't until I received information from Mission that I looked into it with greater interest. Frankly, in addition to enjoying the benefits of a gift annuity, I also wanted to show appreciation for the excellent care provided my wife and me. I know top-quality health care when I see it: Mission Hospital exceeded my expectations of what a hospital should be."

"It made perfect sense to support Mission Hospital through the gift annuity program. Every quarter for 10 years - without fail - I receive a guaranteed distribution from my annuity. Even better; a significant portion of that income is tax-free. Now that is financial peace-of-mind! Additionally, I received a generous income tax deduction. To top it off, I funded my annuity with appreciated stock. Credited with donating the current fair market value of the stock, I did not have to pay any capital gains tax! I couldn't have written myself a better prescription."

"Interestingly, my children and grandchildren understood the concept of philanthropy and supported my decision to donate to Mission Hospital."

"My Mission Hospital gift annuity is a win-win-win scenario; I win, Mission Hospital wins and my family wins in realizing it's what we do for others in life that really matters."
