Giving Is My Joy
Natalie Hall takes great pleasure in supporting causes she cares about.
Her ready laugh and wry sense of humor make Natalie Hall almost impossible to resist. If her nearly constant grin doesn’t win you over, her kind heart will. An irrepressible octogenarian,
Natalie enjoys a simple life that includes supporting her various philanthropic interests.
Natalie’s long history of giving has benefitted causes all over the world and throughout the U.S. As a longtime San Fernando Valley resident and a former editor at the Glendale News Press,
she decided it was time to put her philanthropic focus on her local area.
After a tour of the new patient tower at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center scheduled to open in the first quarter
of 2023, Natalie was impressed with the many advances in care and treatment. She was moved to support construction costs for the hospital’s new patient tower.
“I’ve always done a lot of charitable giving to different places and causes,” she shares. “I realized I hadn’t given locally. I thought, ‘I’ve got to do something for my community,’ and that’s
what inspired me. I believe everyone needs access to excellent health care in their backyard, so this was a good fit for me.”
Natalie auctioned off part of her grandfather’s prized collection of Thomas Hart Benton lithographs to fund a charitable gift annuity. Her gift supported the installation of a significant
section of cladding, a layer of insulating material that provides weather resistance and improves the appearance of buildings, on the hospital’s exterior.
“People in the distant past built the hospitals, schools and roads we count on today,” Natalie muses. “If we can, we should be the ones building the hospitals for the next generation. It’s
definitely time for us to give back if you have the means. I figure I can’t take it with me!”
For Natalie, this planned gift comes with many wonderful returns on her investment. “I’m thrilled to support better health in the community, and I made a good friend of mine the beneficiary of the guaranteed income stream so I can help
her out. On top of that, I get a big tax break and Providence Tarzana Foundation will eventually receive the balance of the invested amount of the charitable gift annuity. Everybody wins!”
