J.S. and Lillie Abercrombie Society

The J.S. and Lillie Abercrombie Society was created to recognize and thank those individuals who have included Texas Children’s Hospital in their estate plans. Members of this honorary group have named Texas Children's Hospital as a beneficiary of a will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan or other deferred gift arrangement. Texas Children’s Hospital is committed to carrying out, with utmost care, the charitable plans of these friends.

The Abercrombie Society was established in 1994 to honor J.S. and Lillie Abercrombie, whose kindness, foresight and generosity helped create Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest freestanding pediatric hospital in the country. In addition to receiving notices to seminars, lectures and events, Abercrombie Society members are recognized in publications of Texas Children’s Hospital, unless they choose to remain anonymous. The Society also hosts gatherings that enable us to show our appreciation to these individuals.

How To Join

To join the Abercrombie Society, please share with Texas Children’s Hospital your intention to include the hospital in your estate plans. Membership in the Abercrombie Society is not based upon gift amount. We are very grateful for your remembering Texas Children’s Hospital—for all gifts—no matter their size. We hope that you will contact us about your plans and that you will allow us to thank and recognize you—providing an inspiration to others who may follow in your footsteps.
