A gift of appreciated stock may offer you the opportunity to provide a more generous gift than an outright gift of cash and is a fantastic way to support patient care. When you donate appreciated stock you have owned for more than one year, you can enjoy greater tax savings from giving such property than if you were to donate an equal amount in cash. To receive such benefits, you must transfer the securities to St. Joseph Healthcare rather than selling them and then donating the proceeds. Instructions for giving stock >

Giving through your donor-advised fund is easy! Our EIN number is 22-2480149. We’d love to say thank you for your gift, please include your contact information with your gift.

Donors aged 70 ½ and older can make a gift of all or part of their annual required minimum distribution (up to $100,000). This allows you to meet your minimum distribution requirements and reduces your income by the amount donated. This form of giving is also another way you may be able to make a greater impact on the lives of those who will benefit from your generosity!!

For the first time in more than six years, the American Council on Gift Annuities has increased its suggested rates. St. Joseph Healthcare is now offering these new, higher rates.

Here’s an example of a CGA: 75-year-old couple John and Sue would like to diversify their estate plan, as well as give back to their community. They establish a $100,000 charitable gift annuity to St. Joseph Healthcare. At a rate of 5.5%, they are guaranteed a $5,500 payment each year, for the remainder of their lives. After John and Sue both pass away the remaining amount will be used to support St. Joseph Healthcare’s vital work.

The typical charitable gift annuity donor:

  • Is 65+ years old
  • Would like additional income
  • Likes the idea of a fixed lifetime payment
  • Has assets that generate little income, such as interest or dividends
  • Has assets with a low tax cost basis
