Benevolent Foundation

The St. John’s Benevolent Foundation exists to bridge the gap between our community’s abundant resources and the ministry needs that surround us.

Contributors to the Foundation join in a remarkable mission that extends the congregation’s outreach far beyond their lifetime.

Benevolent Foundation


The Foundation began in 1979 with a gift of $156,000 from the estate of DJ Mahaley. Since that time and with the generosity of many donors, the corpus has grown to $10 million and has provided nearly $6 million in grants.
