Thank you to the St. Francis House Founder’s Society for your incredible support this past year.

Honoring the visionary leadership of our founder, Father Louis Canino, the St. Francis House Founder’s Society is our committed group of leadership donors who make gifts of $1,000 or more every year to sustain our lifesaving work. 

Annually we hold a gathering to celebrate and recognize their dedicated philanthropic commitment to our guests, sponsored by our close friends Natixis Investment Managers

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we will not be meeting in person this year, but wanted to use this time to thank our Founder’s Society for their critical support. In 2004, we started with 182 members. This past year, we expanded to welcome over 500 individuals to the Founders Society who invested an incredible total of $2.2 million to support our guests as they rebuild their lives with dignity!
