Saint Mary's Follies
The signature fundraising event of Saint Mary's Home of Erie, Follies honors remarkable seniors that continue to use their talents through service and volunteerism for the betterment of our community. All proceeds from Saint Mary's Follies benefit our Benevolent Care Program.
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.
The Benevolent Care Program 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 Benevolent Care Program is a vital resource for seniors who qualify.
If you have an area of interest to which you would like to restrict your gift, our restricted funds are listed below. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to designate your gift to an area of interest that is not listed below.
- Benevolent Care Program
- The Gallagher Center
- Saint Mary's East
- Saint Mary's at Asbury Ridge
