The EPH Foundation believes in the importance of recognizing the donors who make its work possible. There are two giving societies designed to thank donors and build awareness of opportunities for philanthropy in partnership with the Estes Park Health Foundation. Additionally, there are customized recognition opportunities available, such as naming areas or rooms on the EPH campus. To discuss recognition, contact the Foundation Office.


The Knutsson Society provides recognition for Foundation donors. The Knutsson Society is named in honor of the lead donor for the original hospital campaign, Roger Knutsson. Members of the Knutsson Society make a gift of $1,000 or more annually and provide an ongoing level of support for Estes Park Health. There are various levels of the society, as listed below.

The Legacy Society is comprised of donors who have made a gift to the Estes Park Health Foundation as a part of their estate and/or give to the endowment fund. These donors recognize that it is important to ensure that Estes Park Health remains local, independent and strong for generations to come. Making an estate gift to the EPH Foundation and/or donating to the endowment fund helps make certain that your children and grandchildren can live, work and play in Estes Park knowing that quality healthcare is right down the street. If you have made a gift to EPH Foundation in your estate plan, simply let the office know so that you may be recognized and the Foundation can ensure that your wishes for the future gift will be carried out.
