Beebe Healthcare’s Charitable Gift Planning Advisory Council recently held its annual meeting at Beebe Medical Foundation.

The council, which was created in 2017, is comprised of local professionals who work in charitable gift planning, including estate planning attorneys, financial advisers, CPAs, insurance representatives and funeral directors.

The council hears from Beebe’s leaders about projects, plans and services; and discusses ideas and strategies for increasing support for Beebe through planned gifts.

During the meeting, members heard from Beebe Healthcare’s Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer Paul Pernice. He provided the group with an overview of the strong financial health of Beebe and shared a number of statistics and facts. Members learned that Beebe spends close to $81 million on its Community Benefits program, supporting its mission as a community, not-for-profit health care system.
