Why Give


How Your Gift is Used

Your gift makes a difference.

Without gifts from our community, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital would not be able to do all it is called upon to do.

Other sources of income are simply not enough to provide quality healthcare to Highland area communities. Changing insurance, government reimbursement policies, an aging population, and continually increasing costs for health care technology make gifts to HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation essential.

Gifts to the HSHS St. Joseph's 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 General Purpose Fund - For the Hospital's greatest needs as assessed and identified annually.
  • Program Support and Equipment - Designated for the work of a specific service area or program such as the Friends Van, pediatric equipment, financial assistance, or new heart monitors.
  • Special Projects - Designated gifts to special projects taking place at St. Joseph's Hospital.
