Leave a Legacy

At St. Catherine’s, we understand that there are many charitable organizations worthy of your financial support. That’s why we’re grateful for the donors who place their trust in us and choose St. Catherine’s for their charitable giving.

There are many ways you can support us. From a one-time, $25 donation to a major gift, no donation is insignificant. You can be certain that any gift to St. Catherine’s will be used to support a person in need: a mother struggling to keep her family intact, an abused child, a homeless adult, or other vulnerable individual who needs the kind of help that only St. Catherine’s can provide.

Some donors have spent a lifetime building up the value of their assets, and often wonder how they can share their good fortune by supporting a charitable organization. For those people, a Legacy Gift may be the answer!
