A Planned Gift Was Right for Louis Fazzano- and It Might Be Right for You

By making a planned gift to the Newport Hospital Foundation, Louis Fazzano not only continued his long and impressive career as a philanthropist but he also made an investment in the future of Newport Hospital and in the health of the patients and families we serve. Among his many accomplishments, Fazzano has served as a member and as chairman of Newport Hospital's board of trustees. He was the guest of honor at our 2009 gala.
"I opened these annuities because I support the great work that my community hospital does, and appreciate the fact that Newport Hospital is there for me when I need it. -- Louis Fazzano
In 2003 Fazzano decided to demonstrate his commitment to Newport Hospital by creating a charitable gift annuity and becoming a member of the hospital's Living Heritage Society. He is so positive about the benefits of a charitable gift annuity that he has established not just one, but three charitable gift annuities at Newport Hospital.
"I opened these annuities because I support the great work that my community hospital does, and appreciate the fact that Newport Hospital is there for me when I need it," says Fazzano.
