Membership in the Society is considered in a wider sense to be a
summons or call to directly participate in service to the poor, through
a personal gift of heart and friendship within a lay community of
people animated by the same inspiration. Being a member of the Society
of St. Vincent de Paul involves a commitment to:
- Attend regular and confidential meetings
to discuss action and plans to assist the needy.
- Visit the poor in their homes to provide
material and moral assistance.
- Assist all people regardless of race,
creed, origin or any distinguishing characteristic.
- Address root causes of poverty and
injustice through awareness and support of the Special Works of the
- Pray and meditate on the spiritual
relationship of poverty and charity in service to the poor.
Vincentians seek to bear witness to the
love of Christ in their relationship with those in need. In the service
of oneís neighbour, especially the poor there is an encounter with the
suffering Christ. This is both a source of joy and a source of the
Vincentian vocation. The Society relies on all members to give freely
of their time as circumstances permit. The only requirement is a desire
to grow in personal holiness and befriend Christís poor.
"I would like to embrace the
whole world in a network of Charity."

Most donations made to the Society will
be in the form of regular of occasional gifts. However some donors may
wish their gift to the Society to be in the form of a Planned Gift.
These may be made in the form of an annuity, a bequest by will, an
insurance policy, a trust or gift of capital property. These have the
benefit of providing providing an income tax receipt to the donor while
maximizing the amount of benefit to the charity.

bequest in your will. Your estate will receive a tax receipt for the
full amount of your gift.

It is possible to maximize the size of your gift by designating the
Society as a beneficiary of life insurance policy. Payments of life
insurance premiums are considered to be a charitable donation and are
eligible for a tax receipt.
Income (Charitable Annuity):
This provides the donor with a lifetime, guaranteed income in exchange
for a sizable gift. There are several ways to structure this donation.
Under this method it is possible to receive the same after tax amount
