Donations and support

The Anson Phelps Society was created to honor the spirit of Anson Phelps, an extraordinary individual and philanthropist for whom our hospital was named. Anson Phelps Society members are a special group of people who, by including Phelps in their estate plans, demonstrate their understanding of the importance of philanthropy and legacy gifts. These gifts help to ensure our mission to provide outstanding healthcare to our community – today and in the future. Members of the Anson Phelps Society are recognized in our Annual Report, invited to the President’s Reception each year and receive our Society newsletters. Past gifts from Anson Phelps Society members have supported:

  • Hospice Patient Care Fund provides hospice patients with important end-of-life services not covered by insurance, such as massage, art, music and pet therapies, additional home health aide coverage and special financial requests.
  • Emergency Medical Services funds programs that train and support local emergency services providers.
  • General Support enables the hospital’s Board of the Directors and Administration to direct resources where they are most needed and will be most effective.

For more information or to inform us that you have included Phelps in your estate and/or gift plans, please contact Jill M. Scibilia, Vice President of Development at (914) 366-3106 or There is no obligation and all information will remain confidential.
