Donor stories - Pat and Leona Green


In his 25 years as an attorney and partner at Davis Wright Tremaine, Pat Green has helped hundreds of clients make gifts to charity through their estate planning.  Because of his work, Pat knows that estate gifts have the power to create a meaningful legacy, enabling his clients to support charitable work that is important to them -- for generations to come.  As a member of the OHSU and Doernbecher Foundations’ Gift Planning Council and of the OHSU Foundation Board of Trustees, Pat also understands the importance of estate gifts to ensure a healthy future for OHSU.  So when Pat and his wife, Leona, updated their own estate plans, they named OHSU as a beneficiary and communicated their plans to the Foundation. In doing so, they became members of the Sam Jackson Guild and have helped kick-start the Foundations’ joint campaign to enroll 500 new Guild members in the next five years.

“When Leona and I chose to make an estate gift, we made sure to let OHSU know,” says Pat. “In becoming members of the Sam Jackson Guild, we are actively engaged with OHSU.  We stay informed and can better understand the future impact of our gift.”
