A memorial or tribute gift can be established in the form of a named endowment with a minimum gift of $25,000 to fund a specific interest that is consistent with the mission and goals of St. Mary’s.
With an endowment, the principal is invested to create a source of income. Only the earnings are used to support the purpose for which the endowment was established.
Your tribute gift will provide a lasting memory of the honored person and will benefit your chosen cause in perpetuity.
The Cynthia M. Reefe Endowment is an example of an established endowment which supports the intensive care unit (ICU) and critical care services at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital - Madison.
Thanks to generous endowments, we proudly offer scholarships to SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - Madison employees to advance their education in nursing.
