Annual Giving Campaign
Many people in our community asked for the opportunity, on an annual basis, to support the programs, services and activities of the Hospital. The exciting creation of EmStar - our new Emergency Department was a great way to begin our annual giving initiative. In recent years, we have raised funds to support the expansion and relocation of the Rehabilitation Services Department, the expansion of the Diagnostic Imaging Department and the new Mount St. Mary's Neighborhood Health Center clinic in the City of Niagara Falls.

When you give to Mount St. Mary's, you're making an investment in our community's future by keeping it strong and healthy. We have established four worthwhile Funds based on our mission and the core values we live by each day. You can donate to one or more of these Funds-or request that your contribution be used where most needed. Regardless of which option(s) you choose, your gift to Mount St. Mary's means more than ever before.

Services of the Poor Fund
To assist the less fortunate of our community, especially persons who are poor and vulnerable, we have established the Services to the Poor Fund. An extension of our generosity of spirit, this Fund is another example of our dedication to all members of our community. By making a contribution to the Services of the Poor Fund, you enable places such as our Neighborhood Health Center located on 9th Street to help the disadvantaged of Niagara Falls.

Reverence - St. Vincent's Employee Fund
At Mount St. Mary's, we depend on-and value-our employees. To show appreciation for their continued support, hard work and ideas, we have set up the Reverence - St. Vincent's Employee Fund. This beneficial Fund, which is governed by an employee review committee, assists employees in crisis.

Creativity Fund
To keep pace with the changing healthcare needs of our community-and to best serve you-we must constantly move forward. Endowments to the Creativity Fund allow for continuous capital improvement and innovation.

Dedication Fund
For general use where the need is greatest, the Dedication Fund affirms the hope and joy of our ministry.

Annual Good Works Gala
The Foundation sponsors an annual formal event to raise funds for a specific department. We look for major sponsors and corporations to help underwrite the cost of this event. This event has raised nearly $1 million since its inception. We will continue to hold this event to raise funds and awareness for valuable projects at Mount St. Mary's Hospital & Health Center.

Tree of Life
A perfect way to make a permanent honorarium or memorial and contribute to Mount St. Mary's Hospital & Health Center. Located prominently in the lobby by the main elevators, the Tree of Life is a beautiful tribute. There are a variety of gift levels to choose from. With each, the donor's name or a name designated by the donor is engraved on one of the tree leaves, a branch, an acorn, a foundation stone or a miniature tree.
