The Clark Legacy Circle

Clark Legacy CircleThe Clark Legacy Circle honors donors who have expressed a lifelong commitment to the future of Children’s Heath Council by generously including CHC in their estate plans.

Named after our visionary founder, Dr. Esther B. Clark, the Clark Legacy Circle is a celebration of these individuals who have made legacy gifts. Members of the Clark Legacy Circle are recognized in our annual report and website (unless you choose to remain anonymous), kept up to date on happenings at CHC through our semi-annual newsletter, and invited to attend a special annual event.

A HUGE thanks to our generous donors who have already made legacy gifts to CHC—we continue to be inspired by your dedication and kindness.

We do not always know who has included Children’s Health Council in their legacy plans. If you have already made a planned gift or would like to make one, please let us know! We would like to thank you for your generosity, confirm your wishes for your legacy gift, and make sure you become a member of the Clark Legacy Circle.

For more information, please contact our Chief Advancement Officer Muneerah Merchant at 650.575.7589 or

John Kriewall and Betsy Haehl“In planned giving the donor really wants to be omniscient about whether they are making the gift to the right organization, an organization that will survive beyond the lives of the donors –where these funds can be used. We are convinced that CHC is in that category of organizations that will survive well into the future and that our money will be put to good use. That’s why we are planned giving participants.” —John Kriewall and Betsy Haehl
