Ways to Give

Your gift makes a difference. Without gifts from our community, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital would not be able to do all it is called upon to do. Other sources of income are simply not enough to provide quality healthcare to Chippewa Falls and the surrounding communities. Every gift to HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation is tax deductible to the fullest extent provided by law and is used in its entirety - as directed by you - for the benefit of the patients and families served by our Hospital.

Donate Now

Changing insurance, government reimbursement policies and practices, an aging population, and continually increasing costs for healthcare technology make gifts to HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation essential. Gifts also enable our Sisters' tradition of financial assistance to continue for those who otherwise would lack access to healthcare services.

There are many ways to give, including:
