Martha Jefferson Rucker Society

Recognizes donors who arrange a bequest or other planned gift in support of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital

The Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation established the Rucker Society to recognize and honor those who have chosen to remember Martha Jefferson in their estate plans. Their legacy of support allows the Hospital to meet our high expectations for clinical quality and personal health care. In the 1930s, William James and Sally Woods Rucker left a significant portion of their estate to Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.

Through a will, trust, or retirement plan, you can make gifts to ensure the future of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, often greater in size than you can imagine during your lifetime. You may use a bequest in your will to direct a gift to Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital in several ways: percentage of value, property, residuary estate, differed, or contingent. Your estate planner can help you choose an option.

Recognition Criteria

Membership in the Rucker Society will be extended to supporters of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation who arrange a bequest or other planned gift in support of the Hospital. The size of the gift is not a consideration in membership, and there are no other obligations or requirements.

Membership Considerations

  • Invitation to the annual Rucker Society Luncheon and to select leadership events hosted by the Foundation and/or Hospital.
