Ways To Give

Above all, we are a community of caregivers dedicated to ensuring better health and wellness for our families, friends and neighbors in the St. Louis area. The SSM Health Foundation works tirelessly to continue the vital work started by the founding sisters, including highly innovative services for unique care programs in behavioral health, women’s health and oncology, and much needed improvements and construction for our hospitals through capital funding.

Your generosity will enable us to carry on our mission of exceptional care, regardless the degree of need on the part of our patients and their families.

You can support SSM Health in many ways.

Most donations received are by cash, check or credit card — and tax deductible as a charitable donation.
Our foundation accepts securities. These gifts can offer tax advantages, including forgiveness of tax on capital gains and charitable deductions for the fair market value of the securities. Proceeds from real estate, life insurance and retirement accounts are all welcomed.
Making a bequest through your will or estate plan, can support our hospitals and programs for many years to come. Your contribution may consist of real estate, a predetermined dollar amount, or a percentage of your estate.
Charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts support the work of SSM Health while lowering both your income and estate taxes. When establishing a charitable gift annuity, cash or securities are transferred to SSM Health, in exchange for a fixed income to you and/or another specified individual for life.
