Life-Changing Planned Giving
Since 1987, Church Health’s medical, wellness and outreach ministries have impacted the lives of men, women and their families throughout Shelby County.
Thanks to financial support from all sectors of the faith community and the volunteer help of doctors, nurses, dentists and others, Church Health has grown to become the largest faith-based healthcare organization of its type in the country.
The Church Health Legacy Society is comprised of individuals and families who have chosen to leave a legacy by supporting Church Health long into the future.
Your legacy gift will not only help Church Health in the future but will provide benefits for you and your family. Our devoted donors are committed to our mission and trust Church Health to be a responsible steward of their gifts.

Giving Through a Will or Living Trust
In addition to filling an important role in providing for the future financial security of your family and others, your will or living trust can offer a way to make thoughtful charitable gifts as part of your long-range estate and financial plans. It can be satisfying to know that a portion of your property will be put to good use in the future.
A gift made through a will or living trust can be convenient to arrange. A simple provision or amendment prepared by your attorney at the time you make or update your will or trust is all that is necessary. Gifts included in wills and living trusts are popular because they are flexible, easy to arrange, and may be changed with your life circumstances.
- Make a gift of a specific amount. A gift of a particular amount may be designated for general use or to fund a special need.
- Provide for a gift of a particular property.
- Designate that a percentage of your estate be given to Church Health through your will or living trust.
- Give the remainder, or residue, of your estate—that is, what remains after all other bequests to friends and loved ones are satisfied.
- Name charitable interests to receive a bequest in the event other heirs are not there to receive their legacies.
