DONATE

Build Your Legacy. Define Your Impact.

Since 1834, St. Joseph’s Villa has provided a safe and nurturing environment where children and families can learn, heal, and grow. Our foundations were literally built through planned gifts. Without donors like Dr. Daniel Hopkins Gregg or Major James H. Dooley, whose bequests provided the funds for our land and buildings, the Villa campus would not exist today. Planned gifts also ensure our work will continue long into the future.

A planned gift will positively impact the lives of the children and families we serve for generations to come. The Villa has endured nearly two centuries by adapting to meet the changing needs of children, families and the community. Our Endowment enables us to look beyond the immediate costs of programs and anticipate the needs of the future.

Since our doors first opened, we have relied on individual philanthropy to sustain our mission. We provide integrated support services to the most vulnerable and underserved children and families, every minute of every day. Your generosity will enable our doors to remain open long into the future.

Do you have the Villa in your estate plans?

If you have included St. Joseph’s Villa in your estate plans, we invite you to notify us so that we can ensure your philanthropic intent is honored, and count you among the members of the Archway Society.
