Memorial and Honor Gifts

Gifts of any size to St. Gianna Clinic can be made in honor or in memory of someone. Donors make gifts to remember a loved one, to recognize a physician or another caregiver at the hospital or to celebrate a special occasion. If you wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, please include the name of the person as well as the contact information (name and address) for any person who we can notify of your thoughtfulness. 


Matching Gifts

Matching gifts occur when a company matches the charitable contribution of an employee to a nonprofit organization. If you (or your spouse) work for a matching gift company, your gift may be doubled, or even tripled. The matching gift procedure is very simple. The employee gets a matching gift form from their human resources department. After completing the form, the employee sends it along with their gift to the HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Foundation. (You may also send in the form after you have made the gift.) The HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Foundation confirms on the form that it has received the gift and meets the company’s guidelines for receiving a matching gift. The Foundation then returns the form to the company. The company verifies eligibility of the employee and sends a check to the HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Foundation. For more information, please call our office at (920) 433-8653. 


Stocks/Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities may offer you significant tax savings. For information how to transfer securities to St. Gianna Clinic, please call our office at (920) 433-8653. 


Corporate/Foundation Gifts

If your company or foundation would like to contribute directly to St. Gianna Clinic, please call our office at (920) 433-8653. 


Gifts Made Through a Will

Bequests can be of a specific dollar amount, a specific asset or assets or for a percentage of an estate. If you choose to give a gift to St. Gianna Clinic through your will, you can make your bequest available for our immediate use or you may restrict it to endowment. With endowment gifts, a portion of the investment earnings are used to fulfill the stated purpose of the gift. The proper way to list St. Gianna Clinic in your estate is: HSHS St. Vincent Hospital for the benefit of St. Gianna Clinic, 1727 Shawano Ave., Green Bay, WI 54303.


Charitable Trusts

Charitable trusts are another option for donors who wish to make a current or deferred gift to St. Gianna Clinic but are concerned about retaining an income from the asset. Charitable trusts can provide donors with regular cash payments, current charitable income tax deduction, avoidance or reduction of estate taxes and elimination of money-management concerns. *Giving through such arrangements can be a meaningful way to blend your philanthropic goals with your personal financial and tax-planning needs. Charitable trusts are set up through an outside advisor such as through a trust department of a bank. It is important that you let us know if St. Gianna Clinic is a beneficiary of a trust agreement so we may thank you and recognize your gift appropriately.


Life Insurance

Sometimes people no longer need a life insurance policy they purchased when they were younger to protect a growing family and/or they have accumulated ample assets necessary to meet day-to-day financial demands. In this case, the cash value of a life insurance policy as a charitable gift may make sense. Donors may also establish new cash value policies on themselves and deduct the premiums as long as St. Gianna Clinic is named owner and beneficiary of the policy. For more information on making a charitable gift through life insurance, please call our office at (920) 433-8653. 


Endowment

An endowment is an amount of money that is given to the St. Gianna Clinic with a stipulation that the funds are invested to earn annual interest rather than spent immediately. A portion of the annual earnings is used to support programs within St. Gianna Clinic. An endowment can be restricted to a specific department or unrestricted to be used for the greatest need. Named endowments are a gracious way to honor an individual loved one or a family name. A minimum of $10,000 is required to establish a named endowment. For more information on establishing an endowment, please call our office at (920) 433-8653.
