The Cornerstone of Our Future
The 1869 Society was founded to recognize individuals who demonstrate their deep commitment to St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center and its mission of service through a planned gift. The generous contributions from these members serve as the cornerstone of our future by establishing a strong foundation from which many generations shall benefit.
About Planned Giving
Thank you for your interest in planned giving to St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center. Through planned giving, you can leave a lasting legacy to St. Joseph's and enhance your—and your family's—financial security.
Planned giving can have many benefits, both for you and for the hospital, such as allowing you to make a significant and meaningful donation to St. Joseph's while eliminating capital gains taxes or reducing the tax burden on your heirs. Often times, planned giving allows you to make a larger gift than you might previously have thought possible.
A planned gift, as the name implies, requires some advance preparation, typically in conjunction with a lawyer, a financial advisor or both. To determine the best type of planned gift for your situation, you must consider your personal, philanthropic, financial and tax objectives.
View our Giving Options Chart to learn more about definitions, requirements and things you should consider. Keep in mind these popular choices:
- Bequests - designate a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate to leave to St. Joseph's.
- Charitable Trusts - you and/or a beneficiary can continue to receive a percentage of your assets annually, with the remainder going to St. Joseph's.
- Charitable Gift Annuities - earn a fixed amount annually and leave the remainder to St. Joseph's.
- Retirement Plan Assets - name St. Joseph's as your beneficiary and reduce the tax burden on your heirs.
Before You Begin
To determine the most favorable planned gift for your particular financial and philanthropic goals, always consult with a lawyer, personal financial advisor, accountant or other tax professional.
The staff of St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center Foundation can also provide more information about specific planned giving opportunities and work with your professional advisors to facilitate your gift.

Save the Date: 25th Annual Gala Dinner Dance – Friday, June 3, 2016
An annual springtime fund-raising event, this black-tie-optional Gala offers an evening of dining and dancing to benefit special projects of St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center.
Aloha Gala 2015 - to benefit St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation -was held on Friday, May 29, 2015 at the Turning Stone Resort Casino
Since its inception in 1992, St. Joseph’s Hospital's Gala Dinner Dance has raised more than $5.17 million to benefit hospital programs, including cardiac services, medical imaging, the college of nursing, operating rooms, dialysis services and the neonatal intensive care unit. Proceeds from the gala play an important part in St. Joseph’s ability to provide a higher level of care to our Central New York community. This year’s Gala netted over $326,000 which will benefit the hospital’s cardiovascular master plan.
Like most Hawaiian words, Aloha has many meanings. More than a greeting or salutation, it is a way of being, a way of behaving, a way of life. This colorful, festive event was a tribute to Hawaiian culture and welcomed over 850 attendees. Central New York Infusion Services, LLC, was once again the presenting sponsor. The evening featured dining and dancing to the live music of Atlas. Cocktails began at 6:45 p.m. in the event center atrium, with dinner and dancing at 8 p.m. in the main ballroom. The Gala is a black tie optional event. Overnight accommodations are available every year at a discounted rate by calling 1-800-771-7711.
