St. Vincent Partners

Annually pledge 1% of your income or $1,000+

St. Vincent Partners are our core supporters who ensure we can effectively minister to our neighbors and provide thousands of opportunities for volunteers to serve the poor with love. As a St. Vincent Partner, you become part of a network of leaders driving transformative community impact, creating hope for those in need while growing in spirituality and friendship. Partners are invited to join our ministries for special service opportunities. Each pledge of $1,000 provides the equivalent of shelter support for as many as 35 people. St. Vincent Partners continue to serve our neighbors in need with breakthrough programs like “Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ by World” and our supportive housing ministries like De Paul Center for homeless men and Kettering Commons for homeless families affected by disabilities.

Senior Partners

Are you 72 years old with an IRA?

Become a St. Vincent Senior Partner through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (tax exempt up to $100,000 per year), satisfying your Required Minimum Distribution at 72 years of age. 

The SECURE Act of December 2019 increased the age to 72 for the Required Minimum Distribution. But if you turned 70½ before the end of 2019, you are unaffected by the new law, and must make the Required Minimum Distribution for tax year 2019 and beyond. 

The CARES Act  of March 2020 includes a temporary waiver for both the 2020 Required Minimum Distributions and the 2019 Required Minimum Distributions due by April 1, 2020, for individuals who turned 70½ last year and didn’t take the distribution before January 1, 2020.

IMPORTANT for 2020: Qualified Charitable Distributions for St. Vincent de Paul may still be taken from IRAs as early as age 70½.  This is despite the SECURE Act delay in the starting age for Required Minimum Distributions, and despite the 2020 temporary waiver for  Required Minimum Distributions.

Legacy Society

Pledge a gift from your will, trust, or beneficiary

Wills and beneficiary designations make all the difference in our ministries. Every year we have unfunded dreams of additional ways to minister to the poor in the Miami Valley. Gifts like this are the easiest to make if you are concerned that you might need the asset during your lifetime. Perhaps you have a retirement account with no beneficiary, or relatives who no longer depend on you for financial assistance. Or perhaps you would like to assign a percentage in your will to your favorite charities to show your friends and family what is important to you.

To join our St. Vincent Legacy Society, simply include us in your will and notify us of your intention to make a gift from your will, trust, or beneficiary designation. It is a special honor for the St. Vincent de Paul Society to be memorialized by your life in this way! Thank you for considering this once in a lifetime gift!
