1877 Society

The Sisters' Mission, "serving persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life," is their legacy. Celebrating the year The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis began this sacred health care Ministry, the 1877 Society honors and recognizes those who have chosen to support any area of our OSF Ministry through a gift in their will or estate plan.

Legacy or "planned gifts" provide long-term support to ensure our Mission is here for future generations. Will you join us?

Your planned gift to your local
OSF medical center/hospital stays local.

Becoming a member of the 1877 Society represents the most personal gift a person can give. Simply name OSF Healthcare Foundation as a beneficiary in your will, insurance, trust, IRA/401k, or other estate plan. You may designate your gift to benefit any area of OSF, such as your local hospital, home care/hospice, a specific medical specialty, or one of our colleges of nursing.

Benefits to supporting the OSF Ministry through a Planned Gift

In addition to making a life changing gift for the future, membership in the 1877 Society offers other benefits such as:

  • A unique and beautiful membership pin, representing your shared commitment to excellence in health care and the Sisters' Mission, with others throughout the OSF Ministry.
  • Invitations to the annual 1877 Society reception in your community.
  • Member newsletter with stories, progress updates, and creative charitable legacy and planning ideas.
  • Special invitations to educational events presented by the Legacy of Hope Advisory Council to help you keep your estate plans current and ensure they meet your goals.
