What is PA OH Gives?
St. Paul’s is participating in the 4th annual PA OH Gives - Giving Week from June 17-23, 2023 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.
Since its inception in 2020, PA OH Gives has raised a total of $162,000 for St. Paul's Good Samaritan Fund for benevolent care.
Increase the impact of your gift for benevolent care by making a personal donation during PA OH Gives. The Community Foundation will be matching all donations received on June 17 - 23 on a prorated basis.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Do I Give?
1. Credit card - Donate online through the Community Foundation's website.
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 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. Checks can also be dropped off at either location by 10 a.m. on Friday, June 23.
All donations must be received between 12 a.m. on Saturday, June 17 and 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 23 by the Community Foundation to be eligible for the matching contributions. Early or late donations are not eligible for the match but will be passed on to St. Paul's.
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 $125,000) 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?
A few weeks after the event, 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 from St. Paul’s confirming your gift was received.
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. 59% of the residents at St. Paul’s in skilled nursing care and 10% 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. Last year St. Paul's provided the equivalent of $5.2 million in benevolent and unfunded care to residents in need.
