Devoted to Caring...Dedicated to Community
Established in 1983, St. John's Lutheran Hospital Foundation provides vital philanthropic support to St. John's Lutheran Hospital.
As the sole community hospital in the area, we must continually increase our services to meet the needs of a growing population. The expansion of the St. John's Lutheran Hospital Foundation, and its fundraising efforts, continues to play a paramount role in the delivery of quality healthcare to Lincoln County.
The Foundation Board is made up of 15 community volunteers. These dedicated individuals organize a number of fundraising events throughout the year, and also provide financial resource information to donors to assist them in finding the most tax advantaged method of gifting.
Over the years, the Foundation has raised millions of dollars for the benefit of your health and the health of your family and friends.
The Foundation's most recent accomplishments include the raising of $1,000,000 in the SJLH Qualified Permanent Endowment Fund, $250,000 to bring Digital Mammography to the residents of Lincoln County, and over $2,000,000 for the New Hospital Building Project, which helped to make Cabinet Peaks Medical Center a reality.

Why Give to the SJLH Foundation?
Whether for you or your loved ones, you want the best healthcare possible when you need it. St. John's exists to serve those needs in our region. The Foundation exists to make sure that St. John's can continue to provide that care for years to come.
Donors give to the Foundation for many reasons: a concern for the future of St. John's, a desire to help the community, as a memorial to honor a loved one, or as a planned gift as part of an estate or tax plan. The SJLH Foundation is designed to accommodate all these needs and help our donors while they help us.
Gifts of Cash
Charitable gifts are most often made in the form of cash or checks. If you itemize your tax deductions, gifts of cash may be fully deductible up to 50% of your adjusted gross income (AGI).
Gifts of Qualified Assets
Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, life insurance policies, real estate, works of art, and other items of value and investments make attractive gifts because their full value is generally deductible from income tax and, if you have held them for more than one year, allow you to by-pass capital gains that would otherwise be due on a sale.
All donations to St. John's Lutheran Hospital Foundation are tax deductible. Each donor receives a receipt from the Foundation for any donation.
The Executive Director of the Foundation would be happy to sit down with you to discuss your gifting options. The possibilities are endless and tax rewarding! Please call us 406-283-7140 or send us an email.
