About SJM Foundation
The St. James Mercy Foundation (SJM) is the charitable arm of St. James Hospital and is charged with raising funds to support the hospital and a variety of related healthcare services to the benefit of the greater Hornell community. Our mission directs all we do:
The St. James Mercy Foundation strives to provide resources to benefit the St. James Mercy Hospital, establishing programs that encourage a strong tradition of charitable giving in order to sustain and increase health care services in the region we serve, now and into the future.
Since its establishment in 1999, the Foundation has raised over $2.0 million in charitable gifts from sources including the annual campaign, memorial contributions and bequests, and support for events. A group of dedicated, local volunteers serves as the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Gifts to the Foundation provide support for the facilities and equipment, programs, and services that provide quality healthcare within our community. Donors may direct their gifts to a particular project or department or chose to direct their funds to the area of greatest need, as identified by hospital leadership. Please visit Make A Gift—Donate Online for information about how to contribute.
All gifts to the Foundation are tax- deductible. To optimize and appropriately account for your gift, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor or attorney.
