Create your legacy and help insure excellence in health care at St. John’s... today and tomorrow.

Planned or "deferred" gifts present special philanthropic opportunities of mutual benefit to the donor and to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital. They are strategic charitable investments that can provide you with important tax benefits now and in the future.

Planned gifts through your will, life insurance, retirement plans or IRAs, and bequests all serve as a cornerstone of our future by way of establishing a strong foundation from which many generations will benefit.

We will be happy to help you choose which of the investments below best fits your wishes:

Donors who include St. John's in their wills know that their generosity will support healthcare in the Rockaways for years to come. This most fundamental planned gift delivers critically important support to us every year.

Life-Income Gifts
These are gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, providing donors with an income stream, significant tax savings, and the satisfaction of supplying St. John's with vital, long-term philanthropic resources.

Life Insurance
You can name us as the beneficiary of a policy on your life insurance or contribute an old policy that you no longer need. The tax savings are excellent when this type of contribution is made.
