Key Player members include corporations, foundations, parishes, churches, schools and social/trade organizations using their resources to organize fundraisers. Currently, the St. Patrick Center Key Players consist of 123 Archdiocese of St. Louis Catholic Schools and 19 individuals, corporations and foundations including the Kellwood Foundation who made a 5-year financial commitment and a contribution of $195,000.
“We continue to be impressed with the creative and generous fundraising efforts of Catholic Schools and others in the Key Player Initiative,” says St. Patrick Center CEO Dan Buck. “By helping us provide safe, dignified housing, our Key Players are catalysts in leading St. Patrick Center clients and their families to lives of independence and self-sufficiency.”
"The goal of the Key Player Initiative," according to Buck, "is to raise one million Housing Program dollars annually. At $2000 per client/family, one million dollars raised annually will end homelessness for 500 individuals and families each year."
