Centurian Plus Club
Since our founding, individuals dedicated to our long-term success have set up planned gifts for our benefit. Some donors included us as a beneficiary of their will, retirement plan (401(k)), 403(b), IRA, etc.) or life insurance policy while others added to our endowment to continue their annual support after they were gone. Each of these individuals believed in our mission and wanted to be sure we could continue to thrive and grow into the future. For this special group, we created the Centurian Plus Club. The Centurian Plus Club is open to all individuals who have named us in their long-term plans or created an endowment for our benefit.
The Centurian Club was born in June 1978. Since that time, many loyal and generous supporters of the BCH Foundation have made yearly donations of $100 or more during their lifetimes. The Centurian Forever Endowment creates a legacy of giving opportunity that allows similar annual gifts to be continued beyond the donor's life. These gifts will allow the BCH Foundation to continue to receive support, and in turn, offer support for the local healthcare needs of the community. It is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
To become a member, an individual/couple must notify the Foundation in writing or by the attached STATEMENT OF INTENT that they have made arrangements for a current or future gift of $2,500 or more to the Centurian Forever Endowment. Possible options include:
Gifts, once received, will be placed in the Centurian Forever Endowment and invested according to the BCH Foundation policy. Four percent of the annual earnings from the endowment will be used by the Foundation to support its work. Thus, a $2,500 gift is expected to generate $100 of annual income. Over time, the Endowment should grow and keep pace with inflation.
