Help Us Continue Saint Agnes’ Legacy Into Future Generations

Saint Agnes Hospital was created out of the generosity of the Dougherty family philanthropy and with the vision of the Daughters of Charity. It continues to thrive due in part to the continued charitable giving of our friends, associates, physicians, neighbors and grateful patients. Through planned giving, donors to Saint Agnes can continue the extraordinary legacy that began over 150 years ago.

Help Us Continue Saint Agnes’ Legacy Into Future Generations

As you make plans to provide for your family and community in your ultimate plans, consider the impact of a lasting legacy at Saint Agnes, one that will continue beyond your time and for generations to come. A gift from you can help secure Saint Agnes Hospital in continuing to be responsive to changing technology , the future health care needs of our community and in an continuing our mission to serve those who have the greatest need. At the same time you can enjoy the many and varied tax incentives and estate and charitable deductions that accompany a deferred or planned gift.

We invite you to explore the benefits that accompany a Bequest Intention, a gift of Life Insurance/Retirement Plans or a Charitable Gift Annuity. While we welcome and encourage the many other types of specialized planning tools, these three types are the simplest and most easily executed. Many of these gifts cost you nothing during your life and in some cases they can provide additional income for you and a spouse. At the same time they may have a positive impact on reducing estate tax liabilities on your designated beneficiaries.

For information on the suggested language you can use in your will, how you can designate Saint Agnes as a beneficiary of your life insurance or with a minimum $10,000 investment receive income for life and a possible charitable deduction, call Katy Caruso, Director of Development, at the Sain Agnes Hospital Foundation Office at 410-368-8913 or e-mail
