The St. John’s Foundation was established in 1989 with purpose to inspire philanthropic action that sustains and enhances St John’s United.

This philanthropic action includes volunteer services that connect people with meaningful experiences of serving within St. John’s communities, and inviting people to provide financial donations that support the missional work of St. John’s United.

The Foundation annually conducts a funding campaign known as Seeds of Kindness, which provides resources to meet the needs of residents, employees, and St. John’s United programming. The Foundation also invites donors to offer planned gifts that are invested into permanently endowed funds.

The Legacy Circle was established to honor those who have included the St. John’s Foundation in their estate planning or who have offered large asset gifts to the Foundation’s Endowment.

The Foundation’s administrative costs and expenses are paid by St. John’s United. Therefore, 100% of every donation is utilized as donors desire.
