In 2013, the Free Care Fund provided more than $6 million to provide for medical or rehabilitative services for patients who could not afford to pay for it themselves. Your generous gift helps us continue this tradition of caring for all. Tax deductible donations to our Free Care Fund can be made at any time!
Gifts of $100 or more will be recognized in St. Barnabas Charities’ quarterly publication, Faith & Work.
Donors contributing to the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund for two consecutive years are welcomed into “The Heritage Circle” and will receive a welcome gift, donor recognition, and invitations to special events.
Honor and Memorial Gifts
Many donors choose to honor someone living or to memorialize a loved one who has passed with a gift to St. Barnabas Charities. Simply select the “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” choices on our Online or Mail in giving form, and include the name of the person you wish to remember.
You may have an item of value that you would like to donate to St. Barnabas—an automobile, a piano, a valuable work of art or other collectible.
Many employers generously offer to match employee gifts to qualifying charities. This is a great way to double the impact of your gift to St. Barnabas Charities. Contact your company’s human resources or personnel department and, when applicable, ask for a corporate matching gift form to include with your gift.
Combined Federal Campaign
St. Barnabas Charities is honored to be a part of the annual CFC campaign that includes federal government, postal and military donors. Pledges made during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. Please visit www.3riverscfc.org and use our 5 digit code 68441 when making your contribution or pledge. We are grateful for your support.
Many donors elect to make a legacy contribution to St. Barnabas Charities through their estate. Planned Giving includes bequests, charitable gift annuities, gifts of insurance, IRA gifts, trusts, and more. Each gift offers a tax benefit and some also provide a protected stream of income for the donor.
Estate planning is important regardless of the size of your estate. Proper planning will help preserve your assets, assure that you will achieve your personal objectives, and provide security for your loved ones.
If you are grateful for the care you or your family member has received, if you have enjoyed the comfort and surroundings as a resident, or if you believe in our Christian mission of caring, including St. Barnabas in your will may be the best expression of gratitude. The generosity of thoughtful benefactors who have included St. Barnabas Charities in their estate plans has been vital to the successful continuation of our mission.
Your will is the cornerstone of your estate planning efforts and your most important legal document. If you would like to add a future gift to St. Barnabas Charities as a codicil to your will, please call to arrange a confidential discussion. Please do consult with your attorney to assure your will is prepared with provisions that will meet your specific personal needs and wishes.
Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)
GCA’s are a great alternative to bank CDs and a paying investment in St. Barnabas’ mission. CGA’s simultaneously provide a charitable donation, a tax deduction, and a steady income stream for the donor. Providing a great return, St. Barnabas Charitable Gift Annuities with immediate payment are available for an irrevocable gift of at least $5,000 in the names of one or two people ages 55 or over. Using rates provided by The American Council on Gift Annuities, CGA’s provide their donors with a steady fixed income for life, much of it tax-free, and an additional charitable tax deduction for a portion of the gift. In addition, donating securities to a CGA will defer most capital gains tax liabilities. While most donors elect to receive immediate payments, payments may also be deferred to obtain an even higher return rate.
|One Life||Two Lives|
Offering several different options to meet your goals and objectives, charitable trusts can provide secure income options for donors while providing ways to help family members or the charities that are important to them.
By naming St. Barnabas Charities as the beneficiary of a retirement plan, donors can avoid the double taxation on IRAs and other employee benefit plans.
Life Insurance Gift
Contribute a life insurance policy and name St. Barnabas Charities as the beneficiary. This gift will provide a current income tax deduction and possible future deductions through gifts to pay policy premiums. Simpler still, simply name St. Barnabas Charities as the beneficiary of your existing policy.
Hance Legacy Society
The Hance Legacy Society honors St. Barnabas’ founder and the many generous donors who have made St. Barnabas Charities part of their legacy through a planned gift. Since 1900, St. Barnabas has been blessed with many benefactors who have shared Brother Hance’s vision and helped advance St. Barnabas’ mission:
Just as the love of Christ urged Brother Gouverneur P. Hance to devote himself to the service of the poor, it impels us to continue service to those in need and to take appropriate actions to assure the continuing viability of our mission through a strong commitment to our programs and associated services.
