Nell Wiegand Legacy Society

For the Gainesville community, the legacy of Nell Whelchel Wiegand is well-known. She was dedicated to her community and Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) and served in many volunteer roles with the system, including founding chair of the NGHS Foundation. Because of her extraordinary philanthropy and commitment to service, the NGHS Foundation is pleased to honor Nell through the Nell Wiegand Legacy Society. Following in Nell’s footsteps, this important society—composed of individuals that pledge support to NGHS through planned giving—plays a critical role in the future of our community. The Foundation is excited to recognize and honor these individuals for creating their own legacies through a variety of exclusive opportunities and system updates with leaders each year.

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the NGHS Foundation and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to the Northeast Georgia Health System Foundation.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Ways to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
