Announcing the Mount Hermon Redwood Society

In 2013 Mount Hermon announced the formation of the Redwood Society, to honor friends who have provided a gift in their estate for the future of this ministry. Over 196 families and individuals have joined us since then. This has been a tremendous encouragement to the Board of Directors and Staff.

David Talbott directs the Redwood Society, and can discuss gifting opportunities and recommend professionals who can help you with wise planning.  Please feel free to contact him at, and to let us know if you have remembered Mount Hermon in your estate plan, so we can say thank you and enroll you as a member.

An Invitation from Dave Talbott

Dave & Carla Talbott
David & Carla Talbott

Carla and I have been regular donors to Mount Hermon for all of our 45 years of marriage.  So when we revised our wills and family trust, it was natural for us to include Mount Hermon to receive part of our estate when we’re gone.

So it was also predictable that when we started talking about identifying and honoring those who have done the same thing, that I would want to be involved in the Redwood Society.

Having watched changes and growth and increased influence at Mount Hermon for over 55 years, it is obvious that those who went ahead of us have paved the way for what we enjoy today.  There’s no feature, program, or building here that didn’t take sacrificial giving by others.  The “others” have blessed us today because they were blessed in former days.  That’s a really solid Biblical principle: blessed to be a blessing.

Identifying with the Redwood Society is a way for us to encourage others to invest for the future of Mount Hermon.  While the Redwood Society doesn’t provide legal advice, we do offer cost-effective gift planning ideas that could provide unique tax benefits.   We are also happy to recommend Christian professionals who can share the benefits of estate planning.

Carla and I would love to have you prayerfully consider joining us as part of Mount Hermon’s Redwood Society.
