In the St. Louis area alone, there are hundreds of people with developmental disabilities waiting to leave institutions, substandard housing, nursing homes, or the home of an aging parent – and move into an accessible home of their own. Your support makes that possible.
When one of our mortgages is paid off, we’ll celebrate in a big way! Our community supporters will be invited to an outside event where we’ll literally burn the mortgage while enjoying s’mores!
For 48 years, Promise Community Homes has provided our residents’ homes and access to essential resources and services. Despite our progress, the need to continue providing welcoming homes to our unique population is even more crucial as we face an upcoming generation that will quickly outlive their supportive family members. By reducing our organization’s debt through our Burn the Mortgage campaign, we will be able to extend lower rents and expand our residential offerings.
We will invite you to literally light the match and burn the mortgage outside the resident’s home while everyone enjoys s’mores.

Real Estate Gift
Avoid capital gains tax on the sale of a home or other real estate by donating real estate to Promise Community Homes.

Charitable Remainder Trust
In the right circumstances, this plan can increase your income, reduce your taxes, unlock appreciated investments, rid you of investment worries, and ultimately provide very important support.
