Tau Society

Tau Society

The Tau Society is UM St. Joseph Medical Center's Legacy Society. The Society is named for the letter in the Greek and Hebrew alphabets, and, more importantly, a symbol which St. Francis of Assisi cherished: a symbol of genuine hope and response in trust to the faithfulness of God.

The Tau Society recognizes individuals whose faithfulness has inspired them to include contributions to the hospital in their estate plans.
