Your gift today counts TWICE!

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.

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 during the spring and summer of this year. We have achieved the halfway point, and the challenge match as been extended until September 30th!

Every donation between $1,000 - $25,000 is being matched until September 30th.

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: 
  1. Make a pledge of $84/month for 12 months
  2. Make a pledge of $250/quarterly
  3. 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.
