Legacy Society

The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation offers the ALMH Legacy Society as one way to thank the valued donors who have made a gift for the future through planned and estate gifts. Membership in the new ALMH Legacy Society is open to any individual or couple who has made provisions for ALMH through a variety of estate planning tools such as bequests in a will or trust, charitable remainder trusts or gifts of life insurance.

We hope you will tell us when you have included ALMH Foundation in your estate plan. We would very much like the opportunity to say "thank you" for your generosity. Letting us know of your intentions does not create any obligation on your part. And, recognition of your gift may well inspire generosity in others. However, if you choose to remain anonymous, your wishes will be honored.

To establish a gift that benefits the work of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital far into the future, ask your legal or financial advisors to name the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary of your will, insurance policy, retirement plan or other asset. If you or your professional advisors have any questions or require assistance, please contact the ALMH Foundation Executive Director at 217-605-5006 or
