Your Gifts Help Our Students Achieve Greatness


St. Joseph School of Nursing’s mission, “to empower students to provide healing and care for the whole person,” is advanced through the generous gifts of our supporters. Your generosity has a direct impact on our students, and in turn, the care they deliver throughout their careers and the overall state of our healthcare delivery system.

With healthcare professionals in short supply, it is more important than ever that we support and nurture local students as they focus on mastering the knowledge and skills they need to provide compassionate healthcare for the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

We’re Here to Help

We are genuinely grateful for the contributions you make and for your overall commitment to our School of Nursing. Working Together, we can identify a donation strategy that maximizes your gift, while providing the greatest amount of benefit.

For the first time in more than six years, the American Council on Gift Annuities has increased its suggested rates. St. Joseph Hospital is now offering these new, higher rates.

Charitable Gift Annuity Example:
75-year-old couple John and Sue would like to diversify their estate plan,
as well as give back to St. Joseph School of Nursing.

  • They establish a $100,000 charitable gift annuity to St. Joseph School of Nursing.
  • At a rate of 5.5%, they are guaranteed a $5,500 payment each year,
    for the remainder of their lives.

After John and Sue pass away, the remaining amount will be used to support St. Joseph School of Nursing’s vital work.

The typical charitable gift annuity donor:

  • Is 65+ years old
  • Would like additional income
  • Likes the idea of a fixed lifetime payment
  • Has assets that generate little income, such as interest or dividends
  • Has assets with a low tax cost basis

Unencumbered real estate that is readily salable in the marketplace can be a wonderful gift. Upon notification of a potential gift of real estate, we will work with you to evaluate the making/accepting of the gift and approach that are in the best interest of you and St. Joseph School of Nursing.
