Plan for the Future & the SIH Foundation Legacy Society
Create Your Lasting Legacy
The SIH Foundation invites you to create your lasting legacy with a future gift (also called a planned gift) that will help us build a healthier Southern Illinois.
By including the SIH Foundation in your will or trust, or by beneficiary designation in a retirement plan or life insurance policy, you can pass on your passion of caring for others to future generations. Your gift costs you nothing now, but it gives you the power to change lives by providing financial assistance to those in need and enhancing facilities that provide vital healthcare services in our community.
