Frequently asked questions

How is my monthly donation used?

Your contribution can be designated in any way you wish, but our greatest need is the most current need. Supporting St. John’s monthly allows us to use the funds to directly assist guests in the most effective way to get them back to a life of self-sufficiency.

What amount enables me to become a St. John’s GEM?

Any monthly contribution qualifies you to be a “St. John’s GEM” (gift every month). To help us apply your support in the most cost-effective manner, we recommend a minimum commitment of $20 per month. Even more important than the size of your donation is the commitment you are making to providing regular support each month. Whether it’s $20 or $50 (or more) per month, you can rest assured knowing that you are supporting our homeless brothers and sisters through St. John’s and the many services and programs available through a flexible and cost-efficient method of donation.

What are my payment options?

The most cost-effective way to become a St. John’s GEM is by using our online form to set up
pre-authorized payments from your credit card. Pre-authorized payments make monthly donations easier by eliminating the need for postage, monthly checks and reminder letters.

What do I do if I want to change my giving amount?

Your monthly contribution can be adjusted or canceled at any time (within 10 days of the next scheduled transaction). Simply contact Director of Community Engagement Steve Schauer at
