Our Saint Louis Residence needs your help!

Trust is what has sustained generations of Little Sisters for more than 140 years in St. Louis— We trust in God’s Providence and the goodness of others to help us provide for the needs of our Residents.

As you can imagine, the cost of operating a large home and providing for the elderly poor far exceeds the income received from the Residents’ pensions, Social Security and Medicaid.

To cover this constant deficit and to make some cost renovations, we need your help. We rely on charitable donations through direct mail campaigns, church collections, bequests, grants, fundraising events, and the generosity of individual donors like you.

Ways to donate:

You can use a variety of vehicles including your will, a deferred gift such as an IRA or retirement fund, life insurance policy or charitable trust. Donors are encouraged to consult with a financial advisor or attorney before making a gift.
