St. Vincent de Paul  Ways to Give  Giving Circles

Many of our supporters exhibit an outstanding level of commitment to our mission through monthly donations, planned gifts, or major annual gifts. We recognize them through our Giving Circles.

As a member of a Giving Circle, you join a group of individuals who believe deeply in our mission. Take a look to learn more about our Giving Circles and the different benefits associated with membership.

Messengers of Hope

Messengers of Hope is our monthly Giving Circle. With a monthly gift to St. Vincent de Paul, you provide sustainable support, allowing us to serve even more neighbors in need. A consistent source of support each month allows us to plan and operate more efficiently, using your gifts to their fullest potential. 

The Benefits of becoming a Messenger of Hope

It’s simple and automatic. Just choose the amount you’d like to donate, and we’ll take care of it every month for you.

How to Join

That’s all it takes to be a steady source of help for local families in need.
