What is PA OH Gives?
St. Paul’s is participating in the 3rd annual PA OH Gives - Giving Week from June 18-24, 2022 to raise funds for benevolent care. This virtual giving event is hosted by the Community Foundation of Western PA and Eastern OH to help local nonprofits like St. Paul’s who are struggling from the impacts of the pandemic and rising inflation.
In the past, St. Paul’s Caring Hearts on Fire Gala was our largest fundraising event for benevolent care, normally raising around $120,000. Unfortunately we have been unable to have this event for the past three years. With your support, PA OH Gives helps make up some of that shortfall to the Good Samaritan Fund.
The most exciting part - if you make a personal donation during PA OH Gives, your gift WILL BE MATCHED on a pro-rated basis by the Community Foundation, increasing its impact!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Do I Give?
1. Credit card - Donate online through the Community Foundation's website. Click Programs and choose St. Paul's. (All donations received between midnight on Saturday, June 18 and 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 24 will be eligible for the matching contribution.)
2. Check - Make your check payable to the Community Foundation of W PA and E OH with “St. Paul’s” in the memo line. (Checks must be received and dated during June 18 - 24 to qualify for the matching contribution.) Checks can be mailed to the Charitable Giving Office at 341 E. Jamestown Road, Greenville, PA 16125 or the Community Foundation of W PA & E OH at 7 West State Street, Suite 301, Sharon, PA 16146.

Why Can't I Donate Directly to St. Paul's?
In order to take advantage of the free matching funds, you must make your donation to the Community Foundation, designated for St. Paul’s. This makes your gift even greater at no additional cost to you!
Will My Entire Donation Benefit St. Paul's?
Yes. The Community Foundation is not collecting any fees. 100% of your donation designated for St. Paul’s will come to St. Paul’s, in addition to the amount the foundation matches.
How Much is the Match?
The match amount will be determined after the event ends by dividing the total matching funds available (which is more than $130,000) by the total amount of donations received for all participating non-profits. Each non-profit will receive the same percentage of matching funds. If the match ends up being 50 cents for every $1 donated, your $100 gift would actually become $150!
How Will St. Paul's Know I Donated?
After the event ends, St. Paul’s will receive a detailed list with contact information for all of the donors who made a gift to St. Paul’s. The Community Foundation will send you a tax receipt for your gift. You will also receive an additional thank you email or letter from St. Paul’s.
What is the Good Samaritan Fund?
The Good Samaritan Fund supports benevolent care for St. Paul’s residents who exhaust their financial resources and cannot afford to pay for the cost of their care. 62% of the residents at St. Paul’s in skilled nursing care and 15% of those living in personal care depend on benevolent care. Because there is a Good Samaritan Fund, no resident is ever asked to leave St. Paul’s for financial reasons.
