How will I be recognized once I donate?


A patron who donates $1000 or more will have the patron's name placed onto the Giving Tree in the entry hallway.  Large donations towards our building fund may be honored by having rooms or buildings named after them.  You may also elect to remain anonymous.

Is my donation tax-deductible?


Yes, St. Francis Manor is a non-profit organization, registered as a 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and as such all donations are tax-deductible by law.

Why should I donate to St. Francis Manor?


No one wants to think of a grandparent becoming homeless. To prevent that, we provide safe, comfortable, low-cost housing for 130+ seniors.

The Fair Market Rental in Indian River County for an efficiency apartment is $663; for a one-bedroom it's $853. If a senior is living on Social Security and getting a check for $1000/month, paying the market rate of $663 leaves the senior $337. That means the senior has about $85/ week or $12/day for everything else: food, medicine, clothes.

The Manor charges a median of $365/month for a studio. That leaves the senior with the greater margin of $635 for everything else.  

Your donation will enable us to keep our rents below market so our seniors can live above poverty.
