The Board of Trustees established the Dooley Society in 1992 to recognize supporters of Children’s Hospital Foundation who include the Foundation in their estate plans. The society is named in honor of Mrs. Sallie May Dooley, the generous benefactor who provided the funds necessary to build the original hospital, still located on Brook Road, in 1928.
Since our founding, we have relied on gifts made through estate planning. Members of the community make estate gifts to Children’s Hospital Foundation in a variety of ways, with benefits to both the giver and the Foundation. An estate gift often provides donors with the ability to make a large gift while at the same time maintaining their current lifestyles.
Members of the Dooley Society name Children’s Hospital Foundation in their wills, establish a trust or annuity, or purchase a life insurance policy naming the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary. The Dooley Society is now supported by a membership of 151.
