Honor a Caregiver through the Guardian Angel Program

At St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, we are all caregivers.

Providing high quality, compassionate care is the mission we all share. The Guardian Angel program at St. Vincent Charity offers our patients the opportunity to make charitable gifts—of any amount—to honor individual caregivers who provide exceptional care.

This helps to sustain the mission of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center while also providing a way for our patients to thank the “Guardian Angels” who made a difference during their visit or stay. Caregivers honored through the program receive a card informing him or her of the gift, a Guardian Angel lapel pin, and special recognition among their fellow caregivers.

Is there a caregiver you would like to honor as a Guardian Angel?

You may do so using our online giving form by checking the “Guardian Angel program” box and filling in the name of the caregiver you wish to honor. You may also contact St. Vincent Charity Development Foundation at (216) 694-4685 or to contribute by phone or to find out more about the Guardian Angel program.

There are many ways to make a gift and we urge you to do so in a way that makes the most sense for you and your family.

Outright gifts are the most common form of contributions and they are essential to our ongoing operations. Outright or "current" gifts are available for immediate use by the medical center.

The most common types of outright gifts include:

  • Cash
  • Publicly traded securities
  • Closely held stock
  • Tangible personal property
  • Real estate

Planned gifts are those in which the donor retains a controlling interest while St. Vincent Charity Medical Center defers the charitable use to a future time. Common types of planned gifts include:

  • Bequests
  • IRAs or other pension plan beneficiaries
  • Life insurance
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts

We would be pleased to discuss the many ways contributions can benefit St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and provide tax savings for interested donors. Each individual's tax situation is different and tax laws are subject to change. We encourage you to consult with your tax or financial advisors to determine the most beneficial way to participate in Care Beyond Medicine: The Campaign for St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.
