The Amicus Society
Special friends of Advocate Health Care



The Amicus Society

People who have chosen to support Advocate Health Care by arranging for a gift that will provide support for our health care mission in years to come are truly special. The word “amicus” derives from the Latin word for friend. And so it is fitting that Advocate Health Care’s premier giving honorary is named The Amicus Society because it includes our special friends who have chosen to support an Advocate site, program or fund by making gifts for the future through Advocate Charitable Foundation in one or more of the following ways:

  • Including a gift in a will or living trust
  • Creating a charitable trust
  • Establishing a charitable gift annuity
  • Designating us as a beneficiary of assets
  • Making contributions from retirement plans
  • Gifting an insurance policy
  • Donating real estate and other noncash assets
  • Initiating an endowment

How do I qualify for membership?
Membership in The Amicus Society is complementary. There is no dollar minimum, and gifts need not be irrevocable to qualify for membership. Although a copy of the relevant portion of your estate documents, i.e., will, trust, etc., or a narrative description of your plan would be helpful to the Foundation, it is not necessary to disclose the amount of your gift to be considered a member.

What are the benefits of membership?
The Foundation hosts a special luncheon each year for The Amicus Society members and includes them in other exclusive events, tours and programs as well as special communications. Members also receive a membership pin as a token of our appreciation. On occasion members are listed on a Foundation honor roll. You may, however, choose to remain anonymous and still receive the benefits of membership.
