Ways to Give

Give the Gift of Humankindness

Maybe it was a smile or a kind word that brought you or a loved one comfort. Perhaps it was a life-saving procedure or treatment that made your experience at St. Joseph’s extraordinary. Every day, St. Joseph’s receives praise from patients and families for the compassionate care and humankindness they received. Many ask how they can share their appreciation.

Giving Opportunities

You can support the life-changing work at St. Joseph’s Medical Center by making a gift to St. Joseph’s Foundation. Tax -deductible donations can be made in a variety of ways, including cash, pledges, stock, life insurance, real estate, trusts, IRA rollovers, obituary memorials, or bequest through a will.

100% of your donation stays local and supports the fund YOU choose. Thanks to the generosity of grateful patients, St. Joseph’s Foundation has been able to purchase Giraffe Beds for our tiniest patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), a 4D CT Simulator to help locate tumors and plan treatment for cancer patients, and built the first Cardiac Hybrid Suite in San Joaquin County. Funds also provide free navigation and support services to patients and their families.
