The Phillips Society

The Phillips Society recognizes and celebrates friends who create a lasting legacy of giving that advances medicine and scientific discovery by remembering Massachusetts General Hospital in their estate plans.

William Phillips, Jr. the first president of the MGH Corporation (1814-1826) and a former Massachusetts lieutenant governor, was the first person to name the hospital in his will. His bequest supported the construction of the Bulfinch Building, the hospital’s original patient care facility, which is now a national landmark and the symbolic heart of Mass General.

The Phillips Society

The Phillips Society honors those who name the hospital as a beneficiary of a will, retirement plan, donor-advised fund or life insurance policy; establish a charitable gift annuity or trust; or create an endowed fund. These visionary donors are carrying on a tradition of philanthropy that supports exceptional care along with pioneering research and medical education programs.

Phillips Society members receive invitations to our annual luncheon and other special events and mailings. Members can also choose to be recognized in the Society’s donor honor roll. Your membership in the Phillips Society carries no obligation. If your plans change, simply notify the Office of Planned Giving.
