St. Andrews Development Program
Our generous donors have always played an important role in St. Andrew's efforts to provide quality care for our community.
In order to meet the needs of our patients and our community, St. Andrews has established a Development Program offering the following programs:
Through the Annual Fund, St. Andrews replaces essential equipment, addresses daily operating expenses, provides care to those who cannot pay, and expands services to meet the needs of our community – such as our new Outpatient Oncology Program.
The Leadership Society - created to recognize individuals who give in excess of $1,000 annually – allows the donor to demonstrate their commitment to St. Andrews while simultaneously enabling St. Andrews to expand the human care services that address our communities' most critical needs.
Planned Giving is a way a donor can achieve personal and financial goals while leaving a legacy to promote their values and sense of community. Many gift planning options entitle the donor to significant tax benefits. Donors may support the endowment with a one time planned gift or a planned gift pledged over a number of years.
At St. Andrews, our Endowment Fund secures the long-term financial viability of the organization. St. Andrews’ Endowment Fund is a permanent investment where the principal remains intact, while the interest earned benefits the continued needs of our patients and community members. The St. Andrews’ Endowment Fund is administered by a national brokerage firm and is designed to supplement each year’s operating budget.
The interest earned from the St. Andrews Endowment Fund goes toward capital improvement projects, purchasing new major pieces of equipment, seed money toward new programs which enhance the quality of our services at St. Andrews, and ongoing education and training of staff.
Memorial & Named Gifts
There are many occasions in life that provide opportunities for giving. A gift to St. Andrews is a marvelous way to remember a birthday, celebrate an anniversary or holiday, or pay tribute to a dear friend or family member. Simply note the special occasion when you send your gift and indicate whom St. Andrews should notify of the gift. You will receive an acknowledgement of your tax-deductible donation and the honored person will be notified of your special gift (with the gift amount withheld).
The request for funds – identified to meet St. Andrews’ Development goals - from Foundations, State and Federal Agencies.
Throughout the year, St. Andrews holds the following events to either raise money for a specific purpose or to recognize and cultivate new donors:
- Tennis Tournament
- Silent Auction
- Night on the Town
- Leadership Giving Society Cocktail Reception
- Quarterly Planned Giving Cocktail Receptions

Each year the St. Andrews Auxiliary generously holds a raffle in the spring time to generate additional fundraising dollars for St. Andrews. The proceeds of this raffle go towards overall services at St. Andrews.
Making a Gift
You can make a gift in a number of ways. In addition to cash or check, gifts may be made by MasterCard or Visa, by transferring appreciated securities (stocks and bonds) or by donating real estate (especially highly-appreciated property) or other real property. In addition, you may be able to double or even triple your gift if you or your spouse works for a company that matches charitable gifts. Check with your company's human resources office to see if there is a gift-matching program. For more information on making a gift to St. Andrews, please contact:
