Ways to Give
We serve children - Some financial contributions serve 30,000 children each year who depend on St. Mary's for their care. Some need the healing touch of our newborn intensive care unit, while others need our Center For Children, where specialists from around the Midwest provide local diagnosis and treatment. Contributed dollars support these and other valuable ministries.
We heal families - You can give your financial gift to help care for people with cancer, heart disease or other serious diseases. You may want to “adopt” families who cannot afford treatments, or you may want your contribution to purchase life-saving technologies that will benefit all of our patients.
Honor a caregiver - Many people contribute to St. Mary's in the name of a nurse, physician or other caregiver. These dollars (unless otherwise specified) are invested in nursing education.
Need an income? - Retired donors can give a charitable gift annuity to St. Mary's and receive an income from the gift. For example, a 75 year old donor who gives $10,000 can earn 5.8% interest on their donation, receiving quarterly payments for life and also enjoying generous tax deductions.

Buy a Brick
In 1872, the Daughters of Charity established Evansville’s first hospital, St. Mary’s. The rest is history, literally. Help commemorate the Daughters legacy by purchasing a brick in the new Daughters of Charity Prayer Garden, which is located next to St. Mary’s Chapel and St. Mary’s Center for Advanced Medicine.

Remember St. Mary’s in Your Will
Leaving a gift to St. Mary's Health Foundation in a will or final estate is a simple thing to do. Please call us at 812.485.4265 if you would like a recommendation for a qualified professional. It is important that you notify the Foundation if you have left a gift to St. Mary's in your will.
A Charitable Remainder Trust is a flexible investment for more complicated circumstances. If the trust is irrevocable, there are several tax benefits. If the trust is established as revocable, there are no immediate tax benefits, but it could reduce estate taxes.
With a charitable trust:
- You can make regular payments to the account.
- Some circumstances allow you to place property in a trust, yet still receive an income from that property.
- The interest rate may fluctuate but can never fall below 5%.
The Foundation's Annual Campaign for Excellence (FACE) gives every St. Mary’s associate an opportunity to make a financial contribution to the Mission of St. Mary's. St. Mary's associates are very committed to the St. Mary’s ministry and, in a recent campaign, committed over $178,000 to the special programs and services at St. Mary's.
