Gifts Made Through a Will
Members of the St. John’s Legacy Society have arranged for a charitable bequest – a gift made from an estate, after death, or as a result of instructions outlined in 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. John’s Hospital 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. John’s Hospital in your estate is: HSHS St. John’s Foundation, a division of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis Foundation, Inc., 800 E. Carpenter St., Springfield, IL 62769.
If you have or are planning on including St. John’s Hospital in your will, you are eligible to become a member of our St. John’s Legacy Society. Please call or write our office and let us know.
