Saint Francis Foundation

Planned Giving

An Invitation to Join The Valencia Society

In 1997 Saint Francis celebrated its 100th anniversary and created The Valencia Society, named for its first administrator, Mother Ann Valencia. The planned giving society was established to honor individuals who have left a planned gift to Saint Francis Hospital and Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital.

There are a variety of ways that you can support our hospitals through estate planning, including:

  • Making a bequest naming the hospital as a beneficiary in your will or trust
  • Naming the hospital as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy
  • Through your minimum required IRA distributions
  • Naming the hospital as a residual beneficiary of your estate
  • Through the establishment of a charitable gift annuity
  • Donating shares of your publicly held stocks or securities
  • Additional flexible planned giving strategies

We are available to discuss which planned giving option is best for you. For more information, please contact Amy Buzzell, 860-714-4900 or
