The Baptist Healing Trust is a non-profit foundation in Nashville, Tennessee, created to provide grants to non-profits that provide healthcare access to the vulnerable in middle Tennessee. The mission of the Baptist Healing Trust is the sacred work of fostering healing and wholeness for vulnerable populations through strategic investing, philanthropy, and advocacy.
Through 2008, The Trust was required to grant the majority of its investment income in support of the Baptist Hospital. The remainder of the investment income was given via grants to non-profit organizations in middle Tennessee which provide healthcare access for vulnerable populations. Created in 2002 from a portion of the proceeds of the sale of the Baptist Hospital system to Ascension Health, the Trust has awarded grants totaling more than $60 million during its first ten years of grant making.
The Trust is an independent private foundation and is not affiliated with Baptist Hospital or the Baptist Hospital Foundation.
