What is the Legacy Society?


Baptist Health Care Foundation is fortunate to have thousands of donors who see the value of investing in quality health care for our community. Most of our donors make annual gifts in support of the work of Baptist Health Care, but some also plan for future gifts to ensure a better tomorrow.

We recognize and honor all of our donors, and for those who have established planned gifts, we formed the Baptist Health Care Foundation Legacy Society. The Society is an organization consisting of special people who believe so strongly in our mission that they have included Baptist Health Care Foundation in their estate plans. The membership of the Society, consisting of both individuals and families, has grown each year since its formation. The Foundation recognizes the Legacy Society members and respects the wishes of those who desire no recognition.

As you formulate your estate plans, we request that you consider including a provision for Baptist Health Care Foundation. Through your commitment today, people yet to be born will benefit from your generosity.

Several methods may be used to become a member of the Legacy Society including:
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Beneficiary Designations
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
These examples represent the most common type of planned gifts, and the Foundation staff stands ready to discuss these and other options with prospective Legacy Society members.
