Inspired to Give

Jim and Kathy Dickerson chose to leave a gift to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children through their estate plan.

Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children truly is the hospital that golf built. Mr. Palmer has an unmatched legacy for giving back and caring for the future of our community. This legacy is often the reason people are inspired to support the hospital.

Jim and Kathy Dickerson are just an example of such. They have no children and had never given much thought to what they wanted to do with their assets at the end of their lives. After talking with an attorney about the option of leaving a significant portion of their estate to a charity, they began to give serious thought to a worthy organization.

After learning more about Arnold Palmer Hospital, Jim and Kathy decided to make a significant gift through their estate plan. “We have both been fans of Mr. Palmer our entire lives,” says Jim. “When we discovered the hospital and realized how many children are helped because of Mr. Palmer, the decision became much easier.”

Once Jim and Kathy decided to provide for Arnold Palmer Hospital through their estate plan they relied on local estate planning attorney Susan Sullivan to help them accomplish their goals. “Susan was very easy to work with and helped us through the whole process. When she found out what we were doing with our estate she was excited to help us make a difference at the hospital.”

Estate giving is an important source of support for the hospital and provides much needed funds that will enable the hospital staff to provide life-saving care to Central Florida families for generations into the future and continue Mr. Palmer’s legacy of supporting the youngest members of the community. Inspired to Give Jim and Kathy Dickerson recently made a gift to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children through their estate plan.
