Martha S. Clark Legacy Society

To recognize individuals and couples who have made Riverfield part of their estate plans, the Board of Trustees established the Martha S. Clark Legacy Society as one way to permanently recognize Mrs. Clark and all that she has done for Riverfield.
Riverfield is a participant in the Tulsa Community Foundation Planned Giving Partnership. Through this relationship, RCDS community members have access to seminars and free estate planning consultation services. Contact Patti Grice, Director of Giving if you are interested in finding out more.
What is Planned Giving and how does it affect me and Riverfield?
Planned Giving is about the loving transfer of your assets in a way that represents who you are, your values, and your passion. It helps you to not only take care of your family, but also to leave a legacy of philanthropy.
There are a number of giving strategies that can make your legacy come to life and allow you to continue your support of the charitable causes that have impacted you the most - which we hope includeds Riverfield.
Here are some of the planning tools that you could use that could provide tax benefits to you or your estate while distributing your assets in a wise and generous manner.
