Gifts Made Through a Will
Will-bequests are gifts 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(s) or a percentage of an estate. If you choose to give a gift to HSHS St. Vincent Hospital through your will, you can make your bequest available for our immediate use or you may restrict it to an endowment.

The proper way to list HSHS St. Vincent Hospital in your estate is:
HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Foundation, a division of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis Foundation, Inc., 1726 Shawano Ave, Green Bay, WI 54303.
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 920-884-5928.
Credit Card
The HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Foundation is happy to accept your American Express, Discover Card, Visa or Master Card. Please call our office at 920-884-5928 or click below for a secure donation page.  
Life insurance
Transferring a life insurance policy’s ownership can result in great tax benefits for you and is a generous way to give. HSHS St. Vincent Hospital can also be included as a beneficiary of an existing or new policy.
Memorial and Honor Gifts
Gifts of any size to HSHS St. Vincent Hospital 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.

Named charitable recipients would receive the remainder of assets upon death.
