DAY TO DAY SUPPORT
St. Louis Center is facing decreased funding and increased costs during the coronavirus epidemic.
Your gift of any amount is always appreciated!
Did you know that a single day of benevolent care costs $267 per resident? Benevolent care includes residents’ food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and clothing, as well as the staff who provide loving care and activities.
Make a difference in the life of a resident when you click here and select “Provide one day of Benevolent Care for a Resident”.
Help provide support over time with a recurrent donation, matching fund, or planned gift.
We’re all excited to resume in-person ways to benefit the lives of SLC residents.
St. Louis Center provides an opportunity to interact with and get to know community members who are intellectually / developmentally disabled. Those who do quickly learn that labels are not people, and the people who call St. Louis Center home are extraordinary in many ways.
Start by telling us a bit more about what you would like to do and how much time you would like to commit here. Please be sure to let us know if you wish to volunteer as a group or have special interests.

Time left to DOUBLE YOUR DONATION of $1,000 - $25,000:
St. Louis Center continues to face many unanticipated costs due to the pandemic, including a big increase in staffing costs, as well as cuts in government reimbursements, and a significant drop in fundraising revenue–all leading to an ongoing shortfall. The GOOD NEWS is that we were able to meet our urgent year-end goal, and while the pandemic isn’t over, a slow return to normalcy is underway.
Every donation between $1,000 - $25,000 is being matched until July 31st.
A very generous anonymous donor has stepped in to help us with the recovery, matching up to $250,000 for all donations from $1,000 - $25,000 made from May 1st through July 31st of this year! We hope that you will help us reach this goal with a generous, tax-deductible contribution. In addition to cash, stocks, IRA distributions (which may have additional tax benefits) or donor-advised fund gifts are great ways to participate in the matching challenge.
Three ways to double your dollars:
- Make a pledge of $84/month for 12 months
- Make a pledge of $250/quarterly
- Make a one-time donation of $1000 or more
Each $1000 donation helps cover the cost of nearly four days of benevolent care for one resident. Please click here to help us meet this match now and carry us through. We are so very grateful for your generosity!

2020 will be a year we will remember for a long time because of the challenges we had to face, but nevertheless, it has still been a year of graces.
