Newly announced in 2020, Hattie Larlham Giving Societies honor the leadership and sustained extraordinary support of its longtime friends and donors.
Our donors play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our organization, and the societies provide a golden opportunity for us to recognize our most generous supporters. Donors are inducted into one of two societies named in honor of prominent benefactors who shaped the history of Hattie Larlham.
Like those enlightened benefactors, members of Hattie Larlham’s Giving Societies have made a special commitment to support Hattie Larlham and to support its ongoing mission to provide comfort, joy and achievement to people with disabilities and their families.
The Hattie Larlham Giving Societies are comprised of five levels of lifetime giving:
The Hattie and Richard Larlham Philanthropic Leadership Society
honors donors with lifetime giving of $1,000,000 or more.
The Rudolph H. Garfield Benefactor Society
will honor four levels of donor support:
- Sustaining: Donors with lifetime giving of $25,000 - $99,999
- Champion: Donors with lifetime giving of $100,000 - $249,999
- Pillar: Donors with lifetime giving of $250,000 - $499,999
- Visionary: Donors with lifetime giving of $500,000 - $999,999
Inaugural Members of The Hattie and Richard Larlham Philanthropic Leadership Society:

- Estates of Paul W. and Thelma W. Gettig
- Estate of Lois K. Klawon

In recognition that every gift is vital, The Hattie Larlham Society for Annual Giving will annually recognize individuals or family foundations with gifts totaling $500 or more, as well as corporations, associations or foundations with $2,500 or more, in the previous calendar year.
While we cannot meet in person this year, we are looking forward to celebrating with our new Giving Societies members in the near future. A date for a formal induction event, called the Hattie Larlham Friendship Celebration, will be announced soon.
