Funding Opportunities

Annual Giving

Annual gifts from individuals, businesses, service organizations and foundations are the cornerstone of philanthropic support for Saint Mary’s. Donors that give annually can make an impact on an area of interest by designating their gift to one of the following areas:

Area of Greatest Need
Unrestricted gifts enable us to direct funds to the area of greatest need. Your gift provides the flexibility for Saint Mary’s to allocate funds for immediate priorities.

James E. Mantyla Benevolent Care Fund
Benevolent Care was created to support seniors admitted to Residential Care and paying for their own care for a number of years, who now find themselves outliving the financial means for their care. As Medicare and Medicaid do not typically provide reimbursement for Residential Care, the James E. Mantyla Benevolent Care Fund is a vital resource for seniors who qualify.

Other Gifts
Donors may designate their gift to a specific area of interest if they wish. For instance, gifts can be directed to general operating support at the campus of Saint Mary's at Asbury Ridge or to the Activities Department. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to discuss designating your gift to a specific area of interest.


Saint Mary's Follies

The signature fundraising event of Saint Mary's Home of Erie, Saint Mary's Follies honors remarkable seniors that continue to use their talents through service and volunteerism for the betterment of our community. The proceeds from all ticket sales, sponsorships and donations made in support of Saint Mary's Follies benefit our James E. Mantyla Benevolent Care Fund.


Major Giving

Create your own legacy of 'Loving to Care' by making a major gift to Saint Mary’s. With your generous gift you can show future generations of residents that Saint Mary’s played an important role in your life and the lives of your family.

Based on a donor’s interests, there are a variety of possibilities to which a major gift can be made. We will be pleased to work closely with you and your family to identify an appropriate and unique opportunity at Saint Mary's at Asbury Ridge.
