Ways to Give
St. Mary's Health System is a not for profit organization that relies, in part, on philanthropic support for funding some of its healthcare and health related initiatives. It is important to maintain a steady flow of income for needed improvements to our facilities and equipment. St Mary's also has a long-term commitment to provide and care for those less fortunate in our community.
Making a gift to the Patient Care Services Fund will support the overall health system priorities and offer flexibility to fund areas with the most pressing need.
Restricted Funds "restrict" a gift for a specific service, program, capital project or department of the hospital.
You can make an immediate contribution to support St. Mary's using our fast, secure online donation form. You can choose to designate your gift or have it be used where it is needed most.
Stop by and make a gift in person, by mail or phone.
