Our Benefactors: "Where would we be without them?" — St. Jeanne Jugan
Following in Saint Jeanne Jugan’s footsteps, we Little Sisters rely solely on God’s Providence through the generosity of our friends and benefactors to provide for the needs of our Residents. We do not enjoy any type of endowment or long-term funding.
Approximately 60% of the funds needed to operate our home come from the Residents—most of this is Medicaid reimbursement for nursing care. The remaining 40% of the needed income is generated through fundraising—everything from direct mail campaigns, church collections, legacies and grants, to the numerous fund raising events held each year.
We invite you to consider becoming part of the St. Anne’s family by helping the Little Sisters of the Poor through your prayers, generous gift of self or contributions. You can help us continue in our endeavour to promote the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the elderly poor in their last stages of life.
