Generous donor leaves legacy through planned giving

Rhonda began volunteering as a young child. “I’m just wired that way,” Rhonda says. After moving home to Colorado in 2002, she decided to devote some of her free time to Children’s Colorado. She walked through the doors of the hospital and felt like she was home.

Initially, Rhonda spent four days a week as a volunteer, supporting children and families during the toughest fights of their lives. She continues to admire those patients.

“I see their spirit, their energy and their courage,” she says.

The generous spirit Rhonda has nurtured since childhood continues to benefit Children’s Colorado—and will do so well into the future. A few years ago, Rhonda quietly included Children’s Colorado in her estate plans by making the hospital the beneficiary of her life insurance policy. She eventually decided to share her planned gift in order to inspire others and to let people know how easy it is to make a future gift to Children’s Colorado.

“It’s a way that truly anyone can make a significant gift without draining your bank account. It was important to me to make sure that my support of Children’s Colorado carried on beyond my lifetime,” says Rhonda.

During her lifetime, Rhonda has the satisfaction of knowing that she has done everything she can to help the kids she loves and admires.
