Giving to Stella Maris

giving to stellaSince opening our doors in 1953, the Mission of Stella Maris has been to provide excellent, compassionate care to the residents and patients we serve.  The dedication and generosity of our corporate partners, benefactors, and special friends have helped us to advance our mission and continue the tradition of Catherine McAuley, the first Sister of Mercy, who dedicated her life and her fortune to meeting the needs of her community.

Stella Maris is grateful for every gift we receive.  All gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  You will receive an acknowledgment for tax purposes by email or return mail.  Contact us at 410-252-4500, extension 7268 or giving@stellamarisinc.com with any questions you may have.  Thank you for considering a gift to Stella Maris.

Tribute Gifts

Unrestricted Gifts
Unrestricted gifts make an immediate difference where they are needed most.

Planned Gifts
Making a donation through a planned gift is a thoughtful way to create a legacy of support for Stella Maris while providing for your own future and that of your beneficiaries.  Planned gifts include designating Stella Maris as a beneficiary of an IRA/retirement plan or life insurance policy, bequests, charitable gifts that provide income for life, and trusts that benefit both Stella Maris and your heirs. Planned gifts typically include some type of tax benefit in addition to the satisfaction you receive from knowing that your gift will benefit others in the future.  If you are interested in learning about the benefits associated with making a planned gift.
