The Agnes Coburn Legacy Society

This society recognizes and honors individuals and families who have established a planned gift of any size benefitting Hospice of the Piedmont, including named, endowed funds.  The society honors Agnes Adge Coburn, a visionary woman who worked tirelessly to help establish Hospice of the Piedmont in 1980.

Friends who are leaving legacies to Hospice of the Piedmont in their estate and financial plans ensure access to compassionate, quality hospice care in central Virginia for generations to come. Similarly, endowment donors create a lasting legacy, as these permanent investments in Hospice of the Piedmont ensure the future health and vitality of this organization and its programs and services.

Membership in the Agnes Coburn Legacy Society is one way that Hospice of the Piedmont expresses its appreciation to our friends. Letting Hospice of the Piedmont know your intentions does not create any obligation on your part, but it does let us say thank you now, and plan for the future. Membership offers several benefits, including recognition in the Society’s membership roster, with your permission. If you prefer to remain anonymous, be assured we will honor your wishes.
