Get Involved

The success of our programs often relies on gifts from caring and compassionate individuals. You can support children and families throughout Southeast Wisconsin and beyond in numerous ways through a single gift — a gift that helps sustain a broad range of life-changing programs and services that significantly impact people’s lives.

SaintA serves 5,000 individuals a day as they journey through times of personal trial and hardship. Please help ensure their immediate and long-term safety, support family stability, and create occasions of tremendous joy and thanksgiving.

SaintA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are tax-deductible.

Please contact your company’s Human Resources Department or search Matchfinder to see if your company provides a matching gift.
