Helping Us Make a Difference

St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® is fortunate to have such a strong tradition of philanthropy. It all began with a single gift in the 1920s from Carlos Munson of the Munson Steamship Lines. Our journey has been guided by many generous friends since the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary founded the Hospital on the land donated by Mr. Munson. Today, we depend upon your support to help us fulfill our vision for care in the 21st century.

A single donation toSt. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® has the potential to launch a new program, implement advanced technology, seed a research study, or create a setting that offers comfort to patients and visitors.

How to Give to St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center®

St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center's® commitment to the highest quality cardiac care and medical services has been made possible by a tradition of private support. Your gift may be made as an outright gift of cash, a transfer of appreciated securities, or through a bequest or another type of planned gift. Gifts of $5,000 and above may be made as pledges payable over a period of years.

You may select to restrict your gift for a specific area or project. Unrestricted gifts will be applied to the hospital's most urgent funding needs. Memorial gifts and naming opportunities also provide ways for you to recognize an individual with your gift. In addition, you may be able to double or triple your gift if your employer has a matching gift program. For information on their participation, consult your company's human resources department.
