Why give to Methodist Health Foundation?
Methodist Health Foundation provides charitable support to IU Health Methodist Hospital, Indiana’s critical care leader. Throughout its 104 year history, the hospital has evolved and grown in part because of planned gifts from people like you. These gifts ensure that the preeminent patient care provided today is available for your children and grandchildren.
There are several different types of planned gifts that allow you to support the hospital and potentially receive financial and tax benefits for you and your family.
Francis Hughes & Eldon Campbell
In 1961, because of a growing number of gifts, bequests and grants to the hospital, Methodist’s Board of Trustees established Methodist Hospital Foundation. Francis M. Hughes, a prominent attorney, civic leader, 30-year member of the hospital’s Board and past Board president, was elected Foundation president. He led the Foundation for 20 years.
Corporate restructuring in 1982 resulted in the formation of Methodist Health Foundation, with Eldon Campbell serving as its founding president and Board chair.
The stewardship of these two men framed a legacy of philanthropic leadership and secured the future for world-renowned care at Methodist. Because of their inestimable contributions, our planned giving society bears their names still today.
