How do you commemorate a lifetime of devotion to City of Hope? The women of the Bernice Chernove Wynmoor Chapter in Coconut Creek, Fla., are doing it by making planned gifts to City of Hope — reaping advantages for themselves while also advancing lifesaving research and patient programs.
“An annuity is kind of an investment in the future,” President Joan Stein says. “City of Hope is working to find the cure for cancer, and the money we give supports research to uncover that cure.” Stein recently chose to establish a charitable gift annuity — her second with City of Hope.

When you create a charitable gift annuity, you donate cash or appreciated assets, such as securities or real estate, in exchange for a guaranteed lifetime income. Stein appreciates the income, but her biggest satisfaction comes from supporting City of Hope. And she’s reaching out to spread the word about the lifesaving work her fellow chapter members can advance through charitable gift annuities and other planned gifts. So far, four other members of the Wynmoor chapter have made planned gifts to City of Hope. They include Edith Susselman, Lynn Macklis, Helen Julius and Shirley Stone.
“You’re buying an insurance policy for your children, your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren,” Stein says, “so they don’t have to face cancer and other diseases.”
