CREATIVE GIVING

AmazonSmile
There are two ways to support the St. John’s ICARE Foundation through AmazonSmile. 
When you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to the organization of your choice. Just sign into smile.amazon.com, go to your account, and select "Episcopal Health Services" as your charity of choice. Then shop as usual!

The second way to support St. John’s ICARE Foundation is to shop on our charity list. You can help by purchasing one or more of the featured items (baby items, toys or comfort items) by clicking on AmazonSmile Charity Registry and searching: "Episcopal Health Services" to find our charity. 

Charity Wish Lists
In addition to our AmazonSmile wish list, we also have charity wish lists on Target and Walmart where donors can also purchase items to support our Baby Initiative, Comfort Carts and the Children’s Holiday Toy Drive. 

Celebrations
Birthdays, anniversaries, and other special celebrations are a perfect opportunity to give back and support St. John’s ICARE Foundation. Instead of getting more things for your birthday, anniversary, or other special day, you can designate St. John’s ICARE Foundation as the recipient of monetary gifts in your honor. 

Here’s how you can ask your guests to donate in lieu of getting gifts:

Gift Matching – Double your Impact!
Did you know that you can multiply your gift to St. John’s ICARE Foundation/Episcopal Health Services through your company match program? Many companies match employees’ charitable contributions, doubling (sometimes even tripling!) the impact of a gift to St. John’s ICARE Foundation.  We always encourage our generous donors to contact their HR office to see if it’s possible.

In-Kind Giving
Gifts In Kind, also known as in-kind donations, are charitable gifts of goods and services. Individuals, organizations, and groups can donate the following in-kind items to St. John’s ICARE Foundation to support the mission of St. John’s Episcopal Hospital by providing for patients and their families continuously throughout the year.

For additional information or to learn more, contact Nancy Leghart, Executive Director or call 718-869-8062.
 
Third-Party Events
A third-party event is a fundraising activity by a group (business, organization, civic group) where the St. John’s ICARE Foundation has no financial responsibility and little to no staff involvement. 

St. John’s ICARE Foundation’s Third-Party Events program makes it easy for businesses, organizations, civic/community groups, and individuals to give back. 

Here are a few possibilities for events to get your creative ideas flowing:

Before you officially kick off your event, be sure to notify us of your plans at nleghart@sjicarefoundation.org. We will send you a copy of out Third-Party Guidelines and Application which will provide you with fundraiser/host guidelines, how we can support you, the event agreement and a short budget worksheet.
