Leadership Annual Giving

Cornerstone Society

Cor.ner.stone/n – the chief foundation on which something is constructed or developed; something that is essential, indispensable or necessary.

Our most loyal donors – the ones who stand with us year after year – are the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. We know we can count on their support, which provides not only the modern technology and facilities we need today, but also the flexibility to plan for the future care of our friends and loved ones. Because of their gifts, we have a solid financial foundation. That’s why we recognize their leadership in giving through membership in our Cornerstone Society.

Cornerstone members commit to donating to Rochester Regional Health for three consecutive years. Their collective impact on the health and well-being of everyone in our region is substantial.
