John P. McGonagle Society: Fall 2012

Share your bread with the hungry and shelter the homeless poor; then your light will shine like the dawn. – Isaiah 58:7-8

Each year, more than 2,000 homeless men and women receive care and comfort, thanks to those who remembered St. Francis House in their estate plans. We are deeply grateful to the following individuals whose light continues to shine through bequests realized between January 1 and December 31, 2011.

As you think about your own estate plans, please consider joining the John P. McGonagle Legacy Society, named after a longtime volunteer who bequeathed an IRA to St. Francis House. For some members, making a bequest will mean increasing their impact beyond anything they thought possible. For others, it will be a way to secure the future of St. Francis House and realize significant tax benefits. For more information about how to join the Society, please contact Monika Montrymowicz at 617-457-1047 or
