St. Joseph the Worker Legacy Society

Honoring Your Support 

We established the St. Joseph the Worker Legacy Society to express our gratitude for this devoted group of donors who have remembered St. Joseph Hospital in their will or estate plan.  Legacy Society members share the common bond of philanthropy and vision to provide for the needs of future generations. We invite you to join this special group of compassionate supporters. 

Ken & Patti’s Story

Bringing joy to the next generation is their legacy.

For Patti, an important part of her legacy will be her artwork. One of the aspects that brings her satisfaction in her work is knowing that her art will bring lasting joy to others for generations to come.

In a similar way, a gift in your will can create the same joy for the people who will be impacted by that gift. Patti and I believe that St. Joseph Hospital is incredibly important to our community. Its mission of providing excellent care and looking out for people living on the margins is important to us. We want to make sure the hospital can continue caring for all members of our community with unique programs focused on serving those who may be without permanent housing, uninsured or underinsured – anyone who walks in the door with a need that can be met with compassionate care. Not all hospitals have such a strong commitment to mission.

That’s why we chose to include St. Joseph Hospital in our estate plans.

Providing for our family is important, but we also plan to leave a gift for the hospital that means so much to us. Knowing that our family will see our name in the hospital after we are gone, means a lot to us. We hope it will give our children and grandchildren some joy in the future.
