Who We Are

Baptist Healing Trust furthers the work of non-profit agencies providing health services to vulnerable populations in Middle Tennessee. Our mission is the sacred work of fostering healing and wholeness for vulnerable populations through strategic investing, philanthropy, and advocacy.  

The Baptist Healing Trust is a private foundation, a 501(c)(3), that was created in 2002 from proceeds of the sale of the Baptist Hospital System to Ascension Health in St. Louis, MO. Funds generated from those proceeds are granted to non-profit organizations in Middle Tennessee who assist underserved populations through health services. In addition, the Trust provides a range of services and support to caregivers and agencies interested in growing and sustaining a culture of compassionate care.

From its inception and through April 2013, the Baptist Healing Trust has awarded over 60 million dollars in grants throughout the Middle Tennessee region. As the Trust matures, our goal is to have a sustainable impact on the health and lives of residents and caregivers of Middle Tennessee.

The Trust, while created out of the sale of Baptist Hospital to Ascension Health/St. Thomas Health Services, is now a private, independent foundation and is not affiliated with the current Baptist Hospital or Baptist Hospital Foundation.
