About Us

The Shell Point Legacy Society

In the early 1960’s, local businessman and real estate developer, Berry C. Williams, was inspired by a vision for a retirement community along the shores of the Caloosahatchee River in an area long known as “Shell Point.” This vision took root in a significant charitable gift of 75 acres of prime waterfront property by Mr. Williams to The Christian and Missionary Alliance for the development of Shell Point Retirement Community.

Since its founding, this spirit of philanthropy and giving has been at the core of the mission and ministry of Shell Point. And today, the importance of philanthropic support to our vision for the future is just as vital. Your gifts today and in the future, will allow Shell Point to not only remain a leader in the industry, but will allow us to expand and improve the care we give to each resident and their loved ones.

The Shell Point Legacy Society honors the generosity and commitment of Shell Point family and friends who have chosen to remember Shell Point Retirement Community through their estate plans. Members of the Shell Point Legacy Society are inspired by our community and its impact on the lives of everyone it touches today, and in the future.

A legacy gift to Shell Point is a promise to the future that can bring immediate rewards. You will feel the joy that comes with giving. You will experience a new peace of mind knowing others will share in the blessings that have come to you over a lifetime. In addition, some forms of legacy giving may offer you significant tax savings, allowing you to maximize gifts to family members and loved ones while achieving your charitable objectives.

Finally, as a member of Shell Point’s Legacy Society, your gift will help inspire others to give meaningfully to their community…to leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

The message is simple; you can make a difference in the lives that follow by remembering Shell Point in your Will or estate plan.
