The Amicus Society
Special friends of Advocate Health Care



Where can planned gift donors hear inspiring stories, get the latest Advocate news from top executives, and enjoy socializing with like-minded givers? At the annual Amicus Society Luncheon! Make plans to join us for our next one in summer 2018.

What is the Amicus Society?
Amicus comes from the Latin word for friend. The Amicus Society is a special group of friends who have chosen to provide a legacy of health by making a planned gift through Advocate Charitable Foundation to support an Advocate hospital, site, or program.

What are the benefits of membership?
Members are invited to the annual Amicus Society Luncheon as well as other invitation-only events and programs. New members receive a welcome package that includes a token of our appreciation for creating a planned gift. Members may also be recognized in publications, but your request for anonymity will be honored.

How do I qualify for membership?
Membership is complimentary. There is no dollar minimum, and gifts need not be irrevocable. Although a copy of the relevant portion of your estate documents or a narrative description of your plan would be helpful to the Foundation, it is not necessary to disclose the amount of your gift or provide legal documents. The following types of gifts qualify the donor for membership:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable trusts
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Beneficiary designations on retirement plans and insurance policies
  • Real estate and other non-cash assets
  • Initiation of endowments
