Making an Impact Beyond a Lifetime

Carol and Grant’s story is unique and special. Their journey began in 2000 when they became volunteers at Four Seasons. The dynamic duo was hands-on from the start, helping to organize pancake breakfast fundraisers, assisting with critical administrative tasks, and ultimately volunteering directly with patients at Elizabeth House. Carol and Grant dedicated themselves to sharing their gift of compassion to patients in need.  Years later, they would understand, more personally, the depth of care and support that Four Seasons provides.

When it was time for Grant to be admitted to Elizabeth House, they both knew they were in the very best hands. Four Seasons allowed Carol to focus solely on being Grant’s loving wife, by his side, during his final days. Prior to his death in 2015, Grant and Carol decided to include a gift to Four Seasons in their estate plan.

“It is the best way to ensure our gift can keep giving, and we can continue to impact lives for years after we’re gone. It is rewarding to think that we can continue to support such a critical need in our community.”

Carol holds Four Seasons close to her heart. She shared how tight things were for them financially in their early years in New York, with a young family on a college professors’ salary, and how grateful she is now to be able to give back to an organization that has deeply impacted her life in such a meaningful and positive way.
