Your Donations Ensure Our Future

Join the Legacy Circle

With so much uncertainty facing the healthcare system, Marin Community Clinics will be relying on philanthropic gifts more than ever in the coming years. We need your help to ensure we can continue to provide high quality, cost effective, culturally sensitive, patient-centered health care.

People have different reasons for making gifts – to honor a loved one, to express appreciation, or to enable new opportunities. People who make gifts to Marin Community Clinics appreciate what we do for our community and want to ensure the sustainability of these services.

This year, we are focusing on planned giving and building our Legacy Circle with an eye towards long term sustainability. Our Legacy Circle is a dynamic group of donors who have made gifts to our Endowment Fund (managed by the Marin Community Foundation) or notified us that they have made a commitment to Marin Community Clinics in their will or estate plan.jerry-becky-oken-sm

Legacy Circle Honored

On December 8th, Marin Community Clinics hosted a special lunch at Piatti in Mill Valley honoring current Legacy Circle members. Also in attendance were community members interested in learning more about our planned giving options. A wonderful time was had by all!

At Marin Community Clinics, we rely heavily on our dynamic community of donors. It is our donors that allow us to add/enhance programs that provide quality, cost-effective, culturally sensitive, patient-centered health care. Your generous gift supports medical and dental care for children, teens, adults and seniors in need.
