Why be a Sustaining Samaritan?


September 30, 2021

Poverty never takes a day off. It is a relentless burden that causes anxiety and distress – especially for children. By becoming a Sustaining Samaritan, you’ll give help and hope to neighbors in need all year long! Here are five reasons donors choose to give monthly:

  • Consistency: Many people rely on St. Vincent de Paul — Madison every month for food, medicine and clothing.
  • Ease: Give through an automatic, convenient monthly payment.
  • Impact: As a Sustaining Samaritan, you invest in the ongoing care of our neighbors in need.
  • Community: Be a part of a loyal group of supporters who are committed to giving back.
  • Cost-Effective: Monthly giving leads to fewer administrative costs, meaning more money to focus directly on neighbor needs.

You could provide:

  • $15 / month: Diapers and personal essentials for a family
  • $25 / month: Healthy food for one family
  • $50 / month: Crib for a baby or clothing/furniture vouchers for a family
  • $100 / month: Medications for an individual
  • $250 / month: Two-week supply of insulin for pharmacy patient
