Annual Report and Newsletter

All of our donors receive an Annual Report that lists every gift we receive. This document is published and distributed to our supporters every year, as well as to our volunteers and other groups who are interested in the work accomplished at St. Ann’s Community.

Periodically, through our St. Ann’s Community newsletter SPIRIT, we publish a listing of donors who have given to the Foundation to honor or memorialize a friend, loved one, or special caregiver.

Donor Recognition Wall

Significant gifts of $500 or more are honored on our Donor Recognition Wall, in the lobby of St. Ann’s Home. Your name will appear on the wall throughout the year in which you make your gift, in the "Annual Gifts" section.
