Because of YOU, we met and exceeded the $150,000 MATCH!

In November, a very generous anonymous donor offered to match $100,000 of gifts for #SLCBenevolentCare during the month of December. Because of your wonderful kindness, we filled that match on Dec 16.

In December, another very generous anonymous donor saw the generosity of St. Louis Center supporters and offered to match an additional $50,000 donated by Dec 31.  On that day we EXCEEDED the match, and continue to tabulate the final results!

Help cover the cost of benevolent care for residents like Jackie, Stanley, Linda, and Albert.

Many of the residents at the center, rely on your help to provide the Benevolent Care that is needed to help him maintain his community-oriented life.

We use the term Benevolent Care often here at St. Louis Center, but what does that mean? The Center receives funding from residents (through social security), their families and/or state and federal sources. However, the cost of care exceeds those reimbursements by $3,000 to $5,000 a month per resident, depending on their level of need. St. Louis Center must raise Benevolent Care funds to cover that gap. Those funds provide for direct care workers who provide for residents’ daily needs, shelter, clothing, food, and things like toiletries and supplies.

Benevolent Care donations are tax deductible and help St. Louis Center provide a dynamic and engaged life for its 64 residents each day. You can learn more about Benevolent Care at St. Louis Center here.
