Middletown, NY- Norton and Clara Madigan of Middletown have built a lifetime of giving to others. Mr. Madigan, a former firefighter and Mrs. Madigan, a retired dental hygiene instructor decided to set up a revocable trust, also known as a living trust, and named Orange Regional Medical Center a beneficiary.
“It is morally proper to give back to the community which has been so good to us for so many years,” Mrs. Madigan says. “Now, it is our opportunity to join the many contributors who continue to shape the future of healthcare in our region.”
“Planned gifts, such as the Madigan’s living trust, have been an integral part of philanthropy for more than a century for Orange Regional Medical Center and its precursor hospitals. Today, in an uncertain economy, planned gifts are becoming more appealing for donors,” stated Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation President Christine Maraia. “We appreciate the Madigan’s generosity and foresight to plan for their future, and ours.”
Since the 1950s, the Madigan’s have given back to the community both financially and through their volunteering efforts including Mrs. Madigan’s active membership of Thrall Hospital’s (formerly Horton Hospital) Lenten Sewing Club for almost 50 years. “Whatever way a person chooses to support Orange Regional, the experience will surely bring a sense of satisfaction,” Mrs. Madigan says. “My husband and I consider ourselves lucky to be able to give to Orange Regional, knowing we are, ultimately, giving back to the community.”
Gifts to Orange Regional Medical Center can be made in many forms such as cash, securities or real estate, made outright or provided for in a will or trust, donated in memory of, or in tribute to a friend or loved one. Each gift, large or small, is gratefully received and is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law and your own tax circumstances.
