Residents are never asked to leave St. Paul’s for financial reasons. The Good Samaritan Fund assists residents who have exhausted their financial resources and are unable to afford the full cost of their care.
The Keeping the Promise Fund was established in 2012 as a long term investment fund to help offset the cost of benevolent and unfunded care. While the Good Samaritan Fund also provides dollars annually to help support benevolent and unfunded care, the Keeping the Promise Fund is for future needs.
Making a tribute gift in someone’s honor can commemorate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. Tribute gifts are often given in memory of a loved one as a way to express sympathy to the family or to honor their memory. Family members also sometimes choose to make a tribute gift to honor a favorite employee. This is a wonderful way to thank and recognize them for exceptional care.
When tribute gifts are made to St. Paul’s, a card is sent to the honoree or, in the case of a memoriam, to a loved one to let them know about the gift.
Each year, we work to keep the magic of Christmas alive for our residents by giving each one a special gift to unwrap. For some residents without family, it may be the only gift they receive at Christmas. Any additional funds raised will go to buy items on the Resident Christmas Wish List
The Eden Alternative is a philosophy of care that focuses on creating a habitat where life revolves around close relationships and meaningful activities. Gifts to the Eden Alternative go toward helping alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom and promoting independence, growth and living a meaningful life.
We wouldn’t be able to create a meaningful life for our residents without our dedicated team. Family members often ask how they can recognize staff who provide exceptional care to their loved one. Consider making a gift to the Staff Appreciation Fund, which is used for staff recognition and encouragement.
