When William S. Major chose to make the planned gift of his home to our community for use as a hospital, he helped to ensure a bright future. Without his foresight, Shelby County might not have the excellent and convenient healthcare we enjoy today.

Like William S. Major, you can leave a legacy that will help MHP continue to provide world-class health services close to home.

If you intend to include the Major Hospital Foundation in your estate plan, we encourage you to become a member of the Major Legacy Society either by contacting the Major Hospital Foundation or by asking your planning professional to do that for you.

Although you are not required to disclose the nature or amount of your planned gift, sharing even general information will help the Foundation better prepare to receive your gift and carry out your wishes. Sharing information also allows the Foundation to thank and recognize you for your gift during your lifetime.

The Foundation recognizes Major Legacy Society members by listing their names (with their permission) in several of its publications. Members’ names are also listed on a permanent display located in the Medical Center main concourse. Members are invited to attend special events, such as luncheons with the MHP President and Chief Executive Officer.

For additional information about the Major Legacy Society, please contact Angela Gill, Executive Director of the Major Hospital Foundation at 317-421-0361.
