Weinig Estate Gift Will Help Seriously Ill in Southwest Florida
14 September 2016 | webmaster
Avow Foundation, Inc. announces it has received a gift of $795,000 from the Nancy L. Weinig estate. The gift will be used to help seriously ill community residents who can benefit from hospice care.
According to Mrs. Weinig’s estate planning lawyer, Bradley G. Rigor of Quarles and Brady, LLP, “Ms. Weinig was deeply touched by the loving care her close friends and family received through Avow’s hospice care services, and wanted to help Avow continue its wonderful work.”
Avow was founded on the belief that all people in our community who are at end of life deserve the special care that is hospice. We never turn away patients who cannot pay for services. Ms. Weinig’s gift will help cover direct patient care costs and fund special therapies such as music, massage and Reiki energy treatments, which are funded 100% by donations.
Donations to Avow Foundation, Inc. support Avow’s hospice services in Collier County, Florida and palliative care services in southwest Florida.
