Each gift to St. James’s Hospital, no matter how small, makes a difference to patients and their families. Your support helps the hospital staff provide the best possible care for the maximum number of patients.
Individual gifts are both welcomed and appreciated. Donations can be made online, through the homepage of the Foundation or through the MyCharity.ie website. You may make an unrestricted donation, which will be allocated by the Board of the Foundation to the area where it is most needed, or elect to have your funds directed to the department or service of your choice.
Donations can also be made by cheque, draft or postal order. Please complete and return our gift form with your donation.
If you would like to make a donation by electronic transfer, please contact Jennifer Whyte at email@example.com or 01-428 4086.
Naming opportunities are also available for major gifts.

A tradition of health and social care has existed on the St. James’s Hospital site for over 300 years; a bequest in your will to the hospital will continue to support the work of the hospital into the future. It is estimated that over 40% of people in Ireland leave bequests to charitable causes in their wills.
As a registered charity, the St. James’s Hospital Foundation is exempt from both income and inheritance tax. This ensures that the full value of any bequest you make will be used for the benefit of the hospital.
