Meet Our Donors
We thank all our planned-gift donors for their generous support. Here are some of their stories.
Bob Lantz is a shining example of what the Sarahís stars program is all about: someone dedicated to the health of the community that Culberson Hospital serves.
Recently, Lantz and his wife of 60 years, Patsy, graciously made an annual pledge to the CMH Foundation, which helps keep prompt, quality health care right here in Schuyler County.

Giving the Gift of Life (Insurance)
We hear a lot about giving back and dedicating part of our lives to others. But did you know you can set up a gift that keeps giving, even when you canít? By giving an irrevocable gift of an existing life insurance program, you ensure your community continues to receive the best quality care possible through Culbertson Memorial Hospital. Thatís the path Harold and Martha Davis took when they generously decided to make the CMH Foundation the beneficiary of Haroldís life insurance policy. When Harold passed away this past spring, his estate made a gift of over $21,000.
I bought a lot of life insurance when our family was young. Wanted to be sure that Bev and our children would be taken care of should anything unexpected happen to me.
Well, I’m still around, thank goodness. Our children are grown and settled, and Bev and I did a little better financially than we ever thought would be possible when we were starting out. Truth is, our family no longer needed all the life insurance coverage I was carrying for them.
Tom & Wilma
We wanted to make a gift to CMH Foundation in addition to our annual support – a commitment that would make a lasting impact on the organization our whole family loves.
But how to do it? We can’t afford to give away large sums while we’re alive, and our children are counting on receiving most of our estate. Our financial advisor came up with the creative solution. He had been looking over the annual statements from Tom’s and my IRAs and retirement plans.

After my wife Karen died, I began to appreciate much more the organizations to which she had been so devoted. CMH Foundation was always her favorite, and I began to look for ways that my giving could keep her commitment alive.
