Community Medical Center Foundation is a proud member of Legacy Montana, a group of 51 nonprofit organizations working together to inspire you to remember your favorite nonprofits in your will.

Our message is simple:

  • Having a will helps ensure that those people and organizations you have valued throughout your lifetime will be cared for in the manner you choose when you're no longer here
  • Having a will drawn up doesn't have to be a complicated process
  • A will is not just for the wealthy

Several people have remembered Community with gifts of all sizes in their wills -- people like Bill and Rosemary Gallagher, Reanette Cook, John and Nora Staael Evert, and Pauline Imel.  Their gifts have benefited the Rehabilitation Institute, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, healthcare scholarships, and our future care center for women and children.  Community wouldn't be the medical center it is without their generosity. 

Please contact Sigri Thorn-Gildea at 406-327-4149 if we can be of assistance to you and your advisor as you consider how you might benefit Community care in your will.  Also, we'd love to know if Community Medical Center Foundation is included in your will.  With your permission, we would appreciate the chance to say thank you for your forethought and to offer you recognition in the R.H. "Ty" Robinson Legacy Club

CMC Foundation is also a member of the Montana Nonprofit Association (MNA), dedicated to strengthening Montana's nonprofits.
