$150,000 matched because of you!

In November, a generous donor offered to match all donations up to $100,000 by the end of 2022. Because of support from people like you, the Center surpassed the $100,000 mark on December 16th! Then, another generous donor stepped in, offering $50,000 to keep the match momentum through the end of December.

On December 31, 2022, we met both matches!

Thank you for your help in making this possible. Your generosity helps give individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) the chance to live dynamic and fulfilled lives at St. Louis Center. In this caring environment, each resident finds a community suited to their special needs and a place to call home. We are so very grateful!

The final total is still being tabulated. Check back here for a final count.
