Distinguished Donors

Over 70 Distinguished Donors enjoyed a fine wines and hors d’oeuvres reception hosted by Marcia Donlon and Jane Waters at Marcia’s hilltop home in October. The event was generously underwritten by Rabobank and Livingston Development Committee members Gail Beltramo, Tom Pecht and Sherry Scott. Special thanks to Nothing Bundt Cakes for the delicious lemon bundtlet take-away. No funds intended for patient medical services or programs were used to host the reception.

Distinguished Donors demonstrate their strong commitment to helping the sick, handicapped, elderly and homebound by contributing $1,000 or more annually through either a single gift or cumulative giving. These donors receive special recognition, a courtesy year-end giving summary letter, and are invited to an exclusive appreciation event.

Legacy Society

Jane Donlon Waters

"When my mother died in 1993, I flew 2,000 miles to Minnesota, rented a car, drove 30 minutes to the hospital (missing an exit along the way), and made it 15 minutes before she passed. The nurses said she likely was waiting for me to get there. Losing a loved one is never easy, but that memory will stay with me forever."

― Mark Schwartz credits the memory of his mother as the genesis of his strong connection to Livingston Hospice.

Legacy Society members have named Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association in their will or estate plans. These visionary leaders recognize the value to the community of perpetuating quality and compassionate home healthcare services for all Ventura County residents. Legacy Society members receive special recognition and are invited to an exclusive appreciation event.
