MCV Society Celebrates Planned Giving

The MCV Foundation hosted a reception honoring members of the MCV Society at the historic Wilton House Museum. More than 100 guests attended this spring event celebrating the support of some of the university’s most generous benefactors.

The MCV Society recognizes donors who wish to leave a legacy by making a planned gift to benefit the schools, units and programs on the MCV Campus.

Gifts from donors’ estates provide scholarships for students who couldn’t otherwise afford a medical education. They help the institutions on the MCV Campus recruit top faculty and fund ground-breaking research and life-saving patient care.

Margaret Ann Bollmeier, president of the MCV Foundation, thanked guests for their support and reported that the MCV Society welcomed 15 new members since last year’s event. Membership in the MCV Society has reached 350, and the total impact of planned gifts to the MCV Campus is estimated at more than $110 million.
