Gifts of Charitable Trusts
"Every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven." - Henry Ward Beecher Charitable trusts are another option for donors who wish to make a current or deferred gift to St. John's Hospital but are concerned about retaining an income from the asset. Charitable trusts can provide donors with regular cash payments, current charitable income tax deduction*, avoidance or reduction of estate taxes and elimination of money-management concerns. Charitable trusts are set up through an outside advisor such as through a trust department of a bank. It is important that you let us know if St. John's Hospital is a beneficiary of a trust agreement so we may thank you and recognize your gift appropriately. For more information
