Planned Giving

W.W.A. Keller Visionary Society

The start of the Jamestown Regional Medical Center journey began with people who dedicated themselves to, and made sacrifices for, the health and vitality of this community.

On March 7, 1927, a Reverend Walter William August (W.W.A.) Keller, a Lutheran Pastor, and the first board of directors organized the Lutheran Charities Association and sold bonds to campaign for a new hospital.  They were determined to provide Jamestown and the surrounding area with state of the art care and a “vision of the future.” They did.

With one simple sentence in your will or estate plan, you can complete your gift and do more for the future of JRMC than you ever thought possible.

“I bequeath $________or________% of my estate to JRMC Foundation at 2422 20th Street SW, Jamestown, ND 58401.”

This type of donation to in your will or living trust helps ensure our mission and independence.

You can feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years and make a gift to JRMC Foundation. This is possible with a Charitable Gift Annuity.

You can also receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction.

Gifts That Pay

Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and discuss them with your advisor as well as our professional staff at the Foundation.

An Example of How It Works

John, 66, and Sue, 65, want to contribute to JRMC Foundation, but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3 percent, which means that they will receive $860 each year for the remainder of their lives. They are also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $5,544* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will support the mission at JRMC.

*Based on annual payments and a 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions vary based on income earned.

Birthday Club

birthdays are special occasions to celebrate

Kathy Vandeberghe and a group of friends started getting together to celebrate. Affectionately named the Monday Night Birthday Club, they would enjoy different restaurants and just have fun. “At first we’d buy the birthday girl a card,” says Vandeberghe “but we thought why not give that money to a good cause instead.”

This first birthday gift from the club to JRMC Foundation was 18 years ago. As the old saying goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.” Happy Birthday Ladies!

Members include Kathy Vandeberghe, Helen Grenz, Alice Reuther, Mada Mueller, Donna Fischer, Gail Doll, Carol Nordvedt, and Florence Scherbenske.

They wanted to show gratitude for all they have received through JRMC for surgeries, wound care, rehabilitation, and most recent for knee replacement success.

JRMC Foundation has established the Birthday Club in honor of our Monday Night Birthday club ladies!
