How Can You Help?

Since 1945, when Sister Joan, a Physical Therapist with the Society of St. Margaret, founded St. Vincent's, we have been a place of hope for children with disabilities in Haiti. In September of 2017, we moved to our new 8.6 acre campus in Santo 17, not far from Toussaint Louverture International Airport. Here our 200 students assemble daily for classes and a nourishing hot mid-day meal.

Our 51 faculty and 17 new classrooms are always in need of school supplies which are either unavailable or too expensive in-country for us to purchase. So, if you or a friend are coming to Haiti, please consider bringing items on our Wish List.

One-time Capital Projects


 Because our campus is new, we have many expenses to align it with the needs of our special students.

Change a Life by Sponsoring a Student

The $650 annual donation pays the difference in cost between the $130 which a Haitian family pays, and the $780 full cost of tuition.

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

Ways to Give to St. Vincent's

Thank you for your interest in supporting St. Vincent's. 

St. Vincent's Tax-Exempt Number

As issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), St. Vincent's Employee Identification Number (EIN) is 62-1564456. This means we are recognized by the U.S. government as a not-for-profit organization, and, as such, do not pay federal taxes. It also means that your gift to St. Vincent's is tax-deductible, to the extent provided by law.

The following are ways you might want to consider. 

By check:

Please make your check (in U.S. dollars) payable to St. Vincent's Center, Haiti and mail it to:

St. Vincent's Center

P.O. Box 771142

Memphis, TN 38117


Please go to and follow the instructions there for making a gift by credit card or PayPal. Please consider increasing your gift by 5% to cover the cost of this transaction, so that the children of St. Vincent's receive the full benefit of your gift.

Because there are always certain items unavailable in Haiti, we have created a Wish List of those most urgently needed. For these items to reach St. Vincent's securely, they will need to be hand-carried. We ask that you discuss your arrangements with us (, so that St. Vincent's is prepared for your arrival of that or your courier.  Please save your receipts for tax purposes.

From your Individual Retirement Account (IRA):

If you are over 70 1/2 years of age and have an IRA, you are required to take an annual Minimum Withdrawal. If your financial advisor sends that gift directly from your account to St. Vincent's (see above mailing address), that amount is not added to your annual income, nor is it taxed. If, on the other hand, it comes to you and you then make the gift, it is counted as income and is, therefore, taxable. So, please check with your financial advisor before making this kind of a gift.
