Kindness Comes in Many Ways

An Outright Gift

You may make outright gifts by donating online, check, credit card, transfer of securities, real estate or tangible personal property.


Pledging is a method many donors choose to make a larger gift given over a period of time. Depending on the size of the pledge, it may be paid over a three to five year period. A pledge commitment must be in writing and specify the amount and payment schedule. Payments may be made monthly, quarterly or annually.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match their employees’ gifts to St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation. Please check with your Human Resources department for a form to submit with your gift.

Leave a Legacy

A future gift using your assets that is planned to provide the highest level of benefits for you and St. Mary’s. There are many ways to leave a legacy. Many donors discover they can make a much larger gift than anticipated to St. Mary’s through planned giving. We encourage you to talk with your financial advisor and legal counsel to determine the best arrangements for your circumstances. The Foundation can send you general information, at no cost or obligation, on effective planned gifts and bequests.

Stock Transfers

We'd prefer that your stock be transferred directly to our account. To ensure that your gift is properly credited, please inform us when your broker has the transfer order. Many brokers will not release the donor names to us, so it is best if we know to expect your gift or we may inadvertently assume your gift is "anonymous."
