Below are the various ways you can support St. Mary’s throughout the year!
Give the children we serve a better holiday season!
We offer different ways to donate to help the children we serve have a good holiday including cash donations, in-kind donations, including presents for specific children, and items off our holiday wish list.
Give now to our Annual Fund to help Rhode Island children thrive
Our work would not be possible without the generous support of our community. Your gifts enable life-changing activities like Mental Health Services, Residential Services, and our Special Education School. Between instant donations (one-time or recurring), legacy gifts, and memorial giving, we offer flexible options that can be designed around your needs.
The reality is that the kids and families we serve often come to us with few (and sometimes no) individual belongings. That means we have ongoing needs for certain clothing and personal care items. During seasons like back-to-school and the holidays, we host donation drives for items specific to those moments in time.
Your business, your organization, or you as an individual can sponsor our annual fundraising event, the Children’s Friendship Award, which honors two organizations or people who have greatly contributed to the welfare of Rhode Island children. Attend our fun event to hear from one of our clients and and take part in exciting raffles. In addition, bid in our Online Auction which runs concurrently with our event!
Each year on April 1, the United Way of Rhode Island sponsors 401 Gives – a day of giving when people are encouraged to give to their favorite nonprofits all in one day. Last year, they raised $3.1 million for 507 nonprofits. St. Mary’s participates in this day and in 2022, raised more than $33,000. Help us beat that number on April 1, 2023!
Feed 50 families
Help us give $50 supermarket gift cards to 50 of the low-income families that we serve to allow them to have a good and bountiful Thanksgiving!
