Join the Promise Community Homes story.

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!

The Community Legacy

Planned Giving

Please consider joining The Community Legacy to ensure Promise Community Home’s mission of providing long-term safe, comfortable, and affordable homes for people with developmental disabilities continues.

There are many ways to make a gift that can pay off in big benefits to you, your family, and Promise Community Homes. Below are four generally accepted ways to make a bequest.


Options include cash or stock bequest, residuary, restricted, or honorary/memorial bequests in your will.

Bequests of Real Estate

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

Charitable Gift Annuity

Supplemental income with fixed annual payments.

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.
