Ways of Giving

In addition to monetary gifts, you may consider one of the following:

  • Bequests

  • Appreciated Securities

  • Life Insurance

  • Life Income Gifts

  • Real Estate

  • Gifts In Memory or In Honor of a Loved One

  • Gamlas Vanner Society

Giving Society

Gamlas Vanner is Swedish for "friends of the elderly". This makes it a perfect name for our Giving Society. Membership in the Gamlas Vanner Society is reserved for donors who give $5,000 or more to Scandinavian Communities, Inc. or have made a provision to bequeath $5,000 or more through their estate plan.

Many members have given gifts as a remembrance of a loved one or in honor of staff in appreciation for the care their family member received. Membership is also a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.

If you wish to become a member of the Society by making a bequest, simply notify us in writing and provide evidence that you have included Scandinavian Communities as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance, or in some other manner.

The name of each distinguished member of the Gamlas Vanner Society is permanently inscribed on one of the bricks which border the beautiful mural in the entrance to the Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing building and also on one of the leaves on the Recognition Tree located in Assisted Living.
