Sister Alphonsus Tallon Circle of Philanthropy

The Sister Alphonsus Tallon Circle of Philanthropy honors Sr. Alphonsus’ legacy of seventy years of dedicated service to the citizens of the Long Beach area. Sr. Alphonsus, who passed away in 2004, was beloved by thousands of people whose lives she touched during her seven decades at St. Mary Medical Center through her work as a nurse and spiritual leader.

The Circle of Philanthropy group recognizes those who have provided for St. Mary in their estate plans through gifts that include wills, trusts, insurance policies, annuities, real estate, charitable trusts or gift annuities. 

In addition to honoring Sr. Alphonsus and creating your own charitable legacy, many of these planned giving tools can provide significant income and tax benefits for you and your family.

In addition, Circle of Philanthropy members receive a special plaque and are honored at our annual recognition luncheon. Naming opportunities are also available to honor or memorialize members and/or loved ones.

For more information, please contact the Foundation office at (562) 491-9225.
