Professionals such as stockbrokers, attorneys, accountants, wealth managers and financial advisors are constantly on the lookout for ways to reduce their clients’ income and estate taxes. Charitable giving offers an excellent avenue for accomplishing this goal while giving back to the community.

Sun Health Foundation staffers are especially grateful for professionals who educate their clients about the benefits of making charitable gifts through the Foundation to support nonprofit health care in the West Valley. These professionals are fondly named Foundation Fellows.

Similarly, the Founders’ Roundtable honorific was established to recognize and thank individuals who have encouraged family or friends to make a significant outright or planned gift contribution to support Sun Health’s mission.

Both groups were recently honored at a luncheon at The Colonnade. This year’s honorees are:
