Support a Special Event

St. Luke’s hosts many campus-specific special events, many of which support a particular program or project. Special events – from galas to golf tournaments to 5Ks – are a great way to support a cause while socializing with friends and family. Check out the following events to see if one (or two, or three) sounds like something you might like to attend. Or, if you are creative and up for the challenge, you can organize your own grassroots fund-raising even to benefit a program or project at St. Luke’s.

Create an Endowment

A named endowment may be created and designated to a specific program with a gift or pledge of $10,000 or more. When your endowment is fully funded, only a percentage of the interest earned on the fund will be spent each year, leaving the principal to remain intact in perpetuity.

Please call 484-526-3067 to connect with someone in our Development Office to learn how you can create a permanent legacy through a named endowment.

Gifts of Securities

There are many benefits to donating long term appreciated stock which has been held for more than 12 months. 

  • You can claim a charitable deduction for the fair market value of long-term appreciated stock (up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income).
  • You avoid capital gains that you would otherwise pay if you sold the stock.
  • You can make a larger gift than if you sold the securities and donated the net proceeds.
  • It may help to lower federal income tax for the current tax year.

Please call or email the Development Office at 484-526-3067 or DevelopmentOffice@sluhn.org to obtain simple and easy stock transfer instructions.

Make a Bequest

One of the easiest ways you can leave a legacy benefiting the health and well-being of your community is through a will bequest naming St. Luke’s as a beneficiary.

Please use the Contact Us form to let us know if you have already included St. Luke’s University Health Network in your estate plan.
