In May 2016, 14 individuals and families were inducted into the 2016 class of the Wade Mountz Heritage Society, with gift commitments totaling $4.7 million. Established in 2008, the Wade Mountz Heritage Society recognizes donors who have made irrevocable planned gifts of $100,000 or more to support the mission and vision of Norton Healthcare’s adult-service hospitals and service lines through the Norton Healthcare Foundation and/or Norton Children’s Hospital through the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The 2016 inductees include Mr. & Mrs. William Abel Jr., Mr. Walter Clare, Mr. & Mrs. W. Stewart Cobb, Mr. John Hays, Mr. & Mrs. Mark Moussette, Mr. & Mrs. Kevin Muench, Mr. & Mrs. Stuart Pardee, Dr. & Mrs. Lewis Perkins, Mr. & Mrs. Steve L. Ready Jr., Mr. & Mrs. Matthew Rickert, Mr. & Mrs. Scott Skinner, Mr. & Mrs. Philip Tabb, Tracy E. Williams, DNP, and an anonymous donor.
“After my wife, Lisa, died in April 2015, I wanted my estate to honor her and go to organizations that were important to both of us,” said 2016 inductee Walter Clare. “We both valued the very important role that Norton Children’s Hospital plays throughout the commonwealth.”
These donors join 72 other families and individuals who have committed to support the work of Norton Healthcare and Norton Children’s Hospital. The Wade Mountz Heritage Society has raised over $40 million since its inception.
