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.




By transferring ownership of assets owned more than one year, you receive a charitable deduction for the value of the stock or asset on the date it is gifted, with the added benefit of not incurring capital gains tax. Call our office at 715-717-4925 to receive a transfer form with contact information and instructions.


Gifts of Real Estate


You can deed your home or other property to HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation. You receive a charitable deduction based on fair market value, and pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.

Create a Fundraiser


Creating an online fundraiser is an easy and effective way for you to make a difference in the lives of patients and families being cared for in our hospitals. Whether you want to celebrate a loved one or a major milestone, share your birthday, wedding, or special event – there are endless opportunities for you to inspire others to support the work we do.

Gift of Cash


The easiest way to make a gift to the Hospital is simply to write a check made out to HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation. Making donations online is available and convenient by clicking the Donate Now button on this page.


Memorials and Honor Gifts


Gifts of any size 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.

Grateful Patient


A patient's grateful appreciation can take many forms. From kind words of praise toward a member of our staff, to a note of thanks written to a caregiver, to a gift made in their name, patients give thanks for the care they receive at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital.

Named Endowment Fund


An endowment is a gift that is given to the HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation with a stipulation that the funds are invested to earn annual interest rather than spent immediately. A portion of the annual earnings are used to support programs within St. Joseph’s Hospital. An endowment can be restricted to a specific department or unrestricted to be used for the greatest need. Named endowments are a wonderful way to honor an individual loved one or a family name, and provide a gift that supports the Hospital in perpetuity through the annual earnings.

How Your Gift is Used

  • Gifts to the Foundation sustain and strengthen programs and services that intersect people's lives at times of uncertainty. Gifts may be unrestricted or directed to any of these major areas of support:

  • Annual and Special Purpose Fund — For the Hospital's greatest needs as assessed and identified annually

  • Financial Assistance — For the care of individuals who are unable to fulfill their financial obligations to the Hospital

  • Colleague Development — For assisting colleagues of the Hospital with continuing education and career development

  • Endowment — For permanent investment, with interest earned used for general Hospital purposes or for programs for which named funds are established

  • Equipment and Technology Fund — For replacing and acquiring new equipment and technology for direct patient benefit

  • Program Support — For the work of a designated service area, such as the Birth Center, Emergency Services Area, Home Hospice, the Treatment Centers, Lifeline, and SPOTS House (providing therapies for kids with special needs).

Cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more are recognized on the Wall of Honor located in the main corridor leading to the Emergency Services Area. The wall is dedicated to the memory and spirit of our Sisters.



At the center of the Wall of Honor, the Good Samaritan Tree acknowledges benefactors who have given endowed gifts to ensure the future availability of healthcare services to our community.
