ST.VINCENT FOUNDATION SENDS AID TO HAITI
The devastation following the January
12 earthquake in Haiti is unimaginable.
300,000 Haitians were killed. What little
infrastructure that was there has been
demolished. Those who did survive now
face hunger, disease, homelessness and
humanitarian needs.

Thankfully, St.Vincent Foundation donors
and associates have demonstrated
incredible generosity and compassion in
response to this natural disaster. To
date, nearly $110,000 has been raised to
support the Seton Institute and Daughters
of Charity aid efforts and to purchase
necessary medications and medical
supplies for mission trips to Haiti by local
organizations.
In addition to the monetary aid, the
St.Vincent Physician Outreach Network
(PON) – a group of physicians dedicated to
fostering spiritual growth and fulfillment
through service of the poor, oppressed
and voiceless – is partnering with local
medical mission teams in volunteering
to support the Haiti relief effort. Several
teams of St.Vincent medical professionals
have provided their services in Haiti since
the quake. To support these medical teams,
many associates and volunteers have
given their time in helping to organize and
pack medication, medical equipment and
supplies that will be used on these trips.
Thank you to everyone that has given
time and resources to help our brothers
and sisters in Haiti. Haiti is still a country
in turmoil and in desperate need of
continued aid. If you have not yet made
a financial donation but would like to,
please visit give.stvincent.org to make an
easy online contribution or call (317) 3382338. 100% of every donation will be used
directly for the relief efforts.
Students from St. Richard School designed
cards of well wishes. These cards were hand
delivered by our St.Vincent physicians who
were deployed to Haiti.
DOROTHY WINSTON
STILL MAKING AN IMPACT WITH BEQUEST
Dorothy Winston and her husband Martin
were grateful for the wonderful care that
they had received at St.Vincent over the
years. When St.Vincent was opening its
new Cancer Care center, she decided that
was the time to give back to the hospital
that had cared for her and Martin.
Dorothy included a generous bequest in
her estate plan to benefit the St.Vincent
Foundation and St.Vincent Cancer Care. For
her generosity, the main lobby at St.Vincent
Cancer Care was named for Dorothy and
her late husband, Martin. When choosing
the center Dorothy stated, “Facing cancer
myself, I saw the need for this wonderful
facility and was very pleased to have the
opportunity to support this special project.”
Dorothy passed away in 2008. The Winston’s
legacy, however, will live on through the
permanent endowment established by the
Foundation with her generous bequest.
St.Vincent is blessed with the privilege of
having known and cared for Dorothy and
Martin Winston.
Bequests provide an important source
of future support for the programs and
services of St.Vincent. We are pleased
to provide you with sample language for
including the St.Vincent Foundation in your
estate plan.
I give, devise and bequeath the (sum of
percentage of my estate) to the St. Vincent
Hospital Foundation, Inc. to be used for the
benefit of _____________.
If you are interested in including the
St.Vincent Foundation in your estate plan,
please contact Rob Baker, director of
Gift Planning at [email protected]
or (317) 338-5085. You may also find

CHILD PROTECTION CENTER FLOURISHES
WITH CROSSER FAMILY FOUNDATION GIFT
Every child deserves to be raised in a safe
and loving environment and protected
from individuals who might seek to harm
them. Tragically, this is not always the
case. Various forms of child abuse are all
too common in today’s society.
a multi-disciplined team of experts who are
actively engaged in a variety of important
activities related to the fight against child
abuse. Since its inception, the Center has
assessed and treated more than 460 children
from more than 31 Indiana counties.
In response to this critical issue, Peyton
Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent
established a Child Protection Center in
July of 2008. The purpose of this Center
is to provide a wide range of services
including medical evaluations, expert
testimony and various forms of training
and education with the overarching goal
of helping to reduce the rate of child abuse
and neglect in Indiana.
The St.Vincent Foundation is extremely
grateful for the incredible generosity of
the Crosser Family Foundation over the
years, and specifically for the support
of the Child Protection Center at Peyton
Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent
during this past year. The support they
have provided is a primary reason for the
program’s success and growth in the short
time that it has been in existence.
The Child Protection Center was originally
established with a grant from the Corporate
Members of Mission & Ministry, Inc. — a
foundation established by the Daughters
of Charity. Funding to support a second
year of operation was provided in 2009
by the Crosser Family Foundation, a
demonstration of the family’s generosity
and support of children and St.Vincent
Hospital.
Child abuse and neglect continue to be
a pervasive and complex public health
problem that often devastates the lives of
children. It takes a coordinated, multidisciplined approach to effectively address
the problem. The Child Protection Center
plays a vital role in that fight by providing
medical expertise, as well as important
education and training.
The mission of the Child Protection Center
at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at
St.Vincent is to identify, treat and ultimately
reduce the incidence of child maltreatment,
and to enhance the well-being of families
within the local community in order to
nurture safe, healthy and happy children.

Thanks in large part to the funding provided
by the Crosser Family Foundation, the
Child Protection Center has flourished into
St.Vincent was established in Indianapolis
nearly 130 years ago by the Daughters
of Charity with a mission to care for the
poor and vulnerable. The Child Protection
Center fulfills that mission through the
services provided to help protect some of
our community’s most vulnerable citizens
–– our children. We express our deepest
appreciation for the thoughtfulness,
generosity and support the Crosser Family
Foundation has provided to children in the
state of Indiana.
ST.VINCENT CARING ANGELS:
SPOTLIGHT ON GRANTS
The Caring Angel program invites
patients and family members to give
back to St.Vincent with a contribution
in honor of someone at St.Vincent who
provided extraordinary service or care
during their stay. Caring Angels
receive a certificate of appreciation for
their actions and an angel lapel pin to
wear proudly around the hospital.
Each year, the St.Vincent Foundation awards
grants up to $25,000 or less to programs,
services and centers throughout the
hospital. Two of the recently awarded
grants are highlighted here.
By saying “thank you” and making a
contribution to the Foundation, donors
can make a difference and feel really
good about “giving back” to St.Vincent.
