Your Goals

Your Strategy

Your Benefits

Maximize your deduction; minimize the gift details. Use cash or credit card to make your gift to HSHS St. John's Foundation. Claim your deduction against a larger portion of your adjusted gross income and make an immediate impact.
Afford a larger gift and avoid any capital gains liability. Give appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds held over one year. Buy low and give high - make a gift that costs you less than the benefit it delivers to us, while avoiding capital gains tax.
Make a gift to St. John's future that doesn't affect your cash flow or portfolio now. Put a bequest in your will (cash, specific property or a share of the estate residue). Today - a gift that costs you and your family nothing. Tomorrow - as estate tax deduction.
Tap one of the most valuable assets in your portfolio to make a gift to HSHS St. John's Foundation. Use personal property to make your gift, such as real estate, farm land, jewelry or other valuable asset. Avoid capital gains tax, receive an income tax deduction - and have the option of a gift that doesn't affect your lifestyle.
Locate an overlooked asset you can easily give to HSHS St. John's Foundation. Name HSHS St. John's Foundation as beneficiary of your retirement plan; leave other assets to family. Eliminate income tax on retirement plan assets - free up other property to pass on to your heirs.
Make an endowment gift from income rather than capital. Create a new life insurance policy, or donate a paid-up policy whose coverage you no longer need. Increase your ability to make a significant gift.
Make a Corporate Gift. Make a Corporate Charitable Gift while investing in one of St. John's programs. Numerous benefits to the business, the stakeholders and the community.
Help St. John's Hospital, St. John's College of Nursing or Prairie Heart Institute during financially unsteady times. Recession-proof giving ideas - bequests, future gift of a life insurance policy, future gift of retirement plan assets, future gift of real estate and establishing a charitable trust. Minimize your taxes, reduce the tax burden on heirs and fund important hospital programs.
