Securing a Future of Service

St. Joseph’s Villa is the longest serving nonprofit for children in the United States. We have been open to the most vulnerable and underserved children and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, since 1834. Throughout our entire history, community support has sustained our mission.

The Villa’s $24 million Endowment is the product of generous individual philanthropy and prudent stewardship of resources. It provides financial stability for the Villa to withstand unpredictable changes in public funding and in educational and social service policies, especially in difficult economic times–when those we serve need it most.

As the reach of our programs grows, we seek to increase our Endowment by more than 10%. This increase will enable us to meet the rising demands for health and human services, and look beyond the immediate costs of programs to anticipate the needs of the future. The Endowment is expertly managed by our Foundation Board.

Our named Funds for Excellence honor supporters who commit $100,000 or more to the Endowment. Those who fund their endowment through a planned gift are recognized as members of the Villa’s Archway Society.
