Memorials and Donations

St. John’s has several different memorial funds that gifts may be donated to. Gifts may be given to a designated memorial fund or left undesignated and are often given in a tribute to a loved one or in memory of a loved one. All these funds benefit St. John’s in substantial ways. We have teamed up with in order to make donating easier.
