The Legacy Society
The Texas Heart Institute is fortunate to have donors who not only support the work of the Institute during their lifetimes, but make provisions in their wills as well. The Legacy Society was created to recognize individuals who make bequests to the Texas Heart Institute. When individuals inform the Institute of their planned bequests, it gives the Institute opportunities to recognize the thoughtfulness and generosity of these individuals while they are still alive.
Nearly 90 percent of all Americans die without wills, which means that state law determines who receives a person's assets and in what amounts. Members of The Legacy Society encourage others to address the responsibility of making a will, and to create a legacy of generous support in the process.
If you have made a bequest to the Texas Heart Institute or if you have questions about The Legacy Society, please call our Development Office at 832-355-3792.
