The St.Vincent Foundation is pleased to recognize annual donors of $1,000 or more as members of the St.Vincent Society. The society was established in honor of St.Vincent de Paul, Patron Saint of All Charity. St.Vincent’s life work was devoted to caring and concern for the poor. During his lifetime, he saw to the needs of thousands who were hungry, sick, in prison and orphaned. His ministry continues today at St.Vincent and throughout the world through the service of the Daughters of Charity who founded our hospital.
