Sustainer Society

Through their annual gifts, Sustainer Society members demonstrate their commitment to the mission fulfillment of Chapters Health System and its affiliates—Good Shepherd Hospice, HPH Hospice and LifePath Hospice. Our Sustainer Society members year in and year out help fill the financial gap that exists for unfunded and underfunded programs.

Why Become a Member of the Sustainer Society?

The following are some of the reasons why you should become a member of the Sustainer Society:


  • Make a profound difference in the lives of Chapters Health patients and families by continuing programs that receive no financial reimbursement through Medicare and other payer sources.
  • Join with other community members in demonstrating a commitment to the mission of Chapters Health of providing support and care for people in our seven-county community with or affected by advanced illness by offering a wide variety of compassionate healthcare choices.
  • Sustain a “living endowment” fulfilling Chapters  Health commitment to the most vulnerable and honor founders’ vision: no one be turned away from hospice care duty to an inability to pay.

Charitable support is and will always be vital to assure that our community continues to have access to the very best care available.
