A Couple’s Plans to Leave Their Legacy
An Unexpected Tribute to St. Louis Children’s Hospital
Giving Back and Giving Locally
Stars and Children
Stars and children have long been symbols of hope. For the children and families served by St. Louis Children's Hospital, that hope is most visible in the faces of the doctors, nurses and other staff members who care for the children who come through our doors.But there are others who quietly make a difference to these children, yet go unrecognized. Their foresight and planning have created legacies of hope that shine on children like the stars in the sky-turning compassion into action and transforming hope into healing.For these people who have chosen to share a portion of their life's work with children, we have created the Stars Society.
Membership in the Stars Society is open to everyone who has provided for St. Louis Children's Hospital in their will, estate plan, charitable trust or by any other planned gift. In appreciation, the hospital offers the following to Stars Society members:
- Recognition on the hospital's donor wall located on the second floor of St. Louis Children's Hospital
- Recognition in the hospital's annual donor report
- Invitations to an annual event to thank the members for their philanthropy
- Exclusive invitations to learn about the most exciting developments in pediatric medicine.
