St. Louis Center


What to Support

We seek to raise funds for three priority areas:

Priority 1: Annual Residential Support
St. Louis Center's 2015-2016 budget is approximately $4M. The Center must raise more than $1.5M in general operating funding in order to provide for the ongoing physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. When you provide residential support, your gift enriches the quality of life of the residents and allows for continuous learning opportunities.

Through the Legacy Project, residents are benefiting from new enrichment programs including fitness, music therapy, adaptive dance, technology, and gardening.

FY2015-2016 Goal: $1.5M
Raised-to-Date: Approximately $613K

Priority 2: Capital Campaign to Build the St. Louis Guanella Village
Realize St. Louis Center's vision of creating a full continuum of care for children and adults ages 6 to 60+ with intellectual and developmental disabilities through its Legacy Project funded by a $10M capital campaign. St. Louis Guanella Village involves constructing new homes which will guarantee a full range of living and care options, and renovating select existing homes and common spaces.

Overall Goal: $10M                                                                                                                                         2016 Goal: $1.8M
Grand Total Raised-to-Date: Approximately $6.6M

Priority 3: Endowment Support
When you support St. Louis Center's Endowment Trust you are helping to ensure the highest quality of services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities for decades to come. The Endowment Trust has been established to provide benevolent care to eligible individuals.

Overall Goal: $30M
Grand Total Raised-to-Date: $1M
