HELP US HELP OTHERS
Vincentians serve as volunteers. Your contributions go directly to those in need and may be used to help keep a mother and her children warm on a winter night, or feed an elderly man who has just gotten out of the hospital.
Vincentians do not give simply give cash to those in need but rather visit those in need--neighbor to neighbor--in the privacy and security of their own homes so as to help assess their needs and provide financial assistance in the form of rent, utilities, furniture, or other forms of help.
Through your contributions we are able to aid people in desperate times in their lives. Your continued financial assistance will help anyone who is in real need: the children, the homeless, the elderly and the hungry.
Your charity donation does not go to administrative overhead—nearly 100% of your monetary donation goes directly to aid those in need.

MEMORIAL OR TRIBUTE GIFTS
Honoring a loved one, whether living or deceased, through a charitable gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a particularly meaningful act of paying tribute to someone. It also assures that worthwhile values continue to enhance the world around us. Memorial and tribute gifts allow you to thoughtfully remember family members, friends and others who have been a vital part of your life.
There are memorial gifts for every occasion, such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, baptisms, confirmations, Christmas, marriages, funerals or special acknowledgments. Consider the possibilities of gifts of cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds or an estate.
Making a planned gift to the Sacramento Council of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul can help us further the Society’s mission. Planned giving is an opportunity for you to leave a legacy while getting favorable tax benefits during your lifetime or toward your estate. Please consult with your legal or tax professional if you are considering a planned gift to St. Vincent de Paul.

DISASTER RELIEF APPEAL
On behalf of the Vincentians of the Sacramento Diocesan Council, we continue to ask for your financial support for local disaster relief.
As you know, in the summer of 2018, the town of Paradise and surrounding area was hit by the most devastating fire in the State's history, referred to as the "Camp fire." The Sacramento Diocesan Council has supported the ongoing need for relief by establishing case managers for the continued requests for help.
