Caring for our neighbors is as relevant today as it was in 1950, when our founder, Father Alfred Boeddeker, stated, “The great activity of our life is to love.”
The Speranza Society recognizes the generous and compassionate donors who have committed to making thoughtful future gifts to St. Anthony’s. Known as legacy gifts, these donations have made an enormous difference through the years, increasing St. Anthony’s ability to provide essential services every day to our neighbors in need and the critical resources our guests to transform their lives.
Ways to Give
A gift in your will or trust
A bequest in your will or trust is a powerful expression of your vision for the future and establishes your legacy of caring for people, places and causes that are important to you. Don’t have a will or trust? St. Anthony’s partners with Freewill.com to offer you complimentary tools to create a simple and legal will or trust.
There’s no easier way to help St. Anthony’s continue to serve the needs of those who are poor than with a beneficiary designation in your retirement plan, life insurance, annuity or donor advised fund.
If you’re 70 ½ or older, your IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution to St. Anthony’s counts toward RMD up to $100,000 and is excluded from taxable income.
Donating certain assets like stock or real estate provides St. Anthony’s with critical funding for programs and services, and can provide significant tax benefits to donors.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity pays you income for the remainder of your life then supports St. Anthony’s ability to deliver hope, stability, and renewal to individuals and families in need. These annuities offer lifetime income, fixed annual payments, tax savings, and the satisfaction of helping St. Anthony’s create a future where all people flourish.
It makes me want to do something for those less fortunate and whose daily existence is so challenging.

The people who are at the lowest rung of society, and who need the most, are being supplied and supported in many ways, through many programs, to bring them a level of service and quality the otherwise wouldn’t have.
