We are profoundly grateful for the support provided by donors who have made planned gifts to our community. Through their generosity, they create meaningful legacies for future generations.

Here are some of their stories.

Benefiting by Doing Good

Less than 18 months after moving into Westminster at Lake Ridge, Rear Admiral Robert and Betsey Fountain made one of their largest ever charitable gifts to the Westminster Ingleside Foundation.

Changing Lives of Those in Need

Hans Wyss has traveled the world during his professional career with The World Bank, but he and his family found a lasting home in the DC area when he retired.

Enhancing Quality of Life

Woody Cunningham is a scientist who approaches his charitable decisions in much the same way he solves his scientific problems.

Giving a Gift That Grows

Sinclair Winton loves her garden. In fact, it was the patio gardens (and the encouragement of her daughter) that made her decide to move from Chicago to Ingleside Rock Creek more than 15 years ago.

Giving Back, Paying Forward

Peggy and Gary Cecchine have been in the cottages at Westminster at Lake Ridge for about 30 months, after having moved 22 times during Gary’s military career. But they are not yet ready to sit back and let others do the work.

Strategic Plan for the Future

Alice and Lance Buhl have spent their professional lives working for nonprofit organizations and volunteering on nonprofit Boards. Their approach to philanthropy in retirement reflects their thoughtful approach throughout their careers: be strategic; make gifts that have positive impact on causes about which you are passionate; and plan for the future.

Supporting a Unique Safety Net

Linda and Eric White are relatively new residents of Ingleside Rock Creek, moving in August of 2020. They had lived nearby and were seeking a community with an active independent lifestyle and less home maintenance.
