Together we can give back to
those who have given so much

Every gift makes a difference – your gift makes a difference.

Since 1956 for men and 1994 for women, Guest House has been providing a unique Catholic faith-filled, community atmosphere for clergy and men and women religious who are suffering from addiction, regardless of their ability to pay.

We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations (parishes, dioceses, religious communities, and businesses), corporations, and foundations to carry out our ministry of providing the best opportunity for quality recovery and overall health and wellness.

These philanthropic efforts make it possible for Guest House to provide comprehensive addiction treatment and continuing care, offer education on topics related to addiction, and engage in addiction research to continue the excellent work of our mission.

Giving can be directed to a specific program or building, scholarship, or education and research.

Thanksgiving Appeal

The support of our donors allows Guest House to treat clergy and women and men religious regardless of their ability to pay.
After fifty years of religious life, it was clear to Sister Marylou and her leadership representatives that she had become powerless over alcohol and her life had become unmanageable. Research into where to move towards healing yielded Guest House as a first choice.

“From the moment of initial contact,” Marylou recalls, “everyone contributed so much to this holistic experience that is Guest House. The driver who picked me up at the airport, the receptionist, the dietary and housekeeping staff – each one of them was delightful, and respectful, and kind. And I felt myself held in what I can only describe as a loving surround.”

One key step 
“Ironically, I was quite certain that a twelve-step program was not for me. I saw it as quite confining. And it did not admit ideas that I was interested in. I was beyond that, I thought, so I could skip through this program without having to commit to the twelve steps.

“Fortunately, I had a great therapist who helped me change all that, opening up for me the spirituality that is key to recovery through the steps, and that is now so much a part of my life.”

Giving back in thanks 
“Now when I think about Guest House, it’s always with enormous gratitude for everyone who made it a safe and nourishing experience. I am especially grateful for the donors to Guest House, who make it possible for women and men to go there for healing, regardless of their financial situation. I was fortunate to have the unqualified support of my congregation. But I know that others would not be able to come to Guest House without the help of its donors.”

In her gratitude, Marylou has worked to give something back to Guest House. “I belong to the Advocacy Partners for the Women’s Programs who interact about all aspects of the continuum of women’s programs initiated by Guest House. Today I would do anything to forward the mission of Guest House, which it’s donors and benefactors so generously support!”

Gift Planning/ Estate Giving

Making gifts for the benefit of others is an excellent way to affirm your values and priorities. You can designate your gift to a specific program or building, to scholarship or to education and research. Your gift can also be unrestricted and used where needed most. Planning your gift to Guest House may stretch the value of your donation, enabling you to do more than you think possible. An estate gift may also benefit you and your family: your tax savings may be increased, and some estate gifts can provide you or a loved one guaranteed lifetime income.

A Bequest in a Will or Trust stipulates that an amount or a percentage of your estate will be given to Guest House after your lifetime. Your bequest can be designated to a specific program or building, to scholarship or to education and research, or it can be unrestricted and used where needed most.

Life-income Gifts provide income to a donor and/or another individual age 60 or older. At the end of the beneficiary’s lifetime, the remainder is given to Guest House.

A Gift of Retirement Fund Assets is a specific use of funds that would be heavily taxed if given to an individual—up to 85 percent. After your lifetime, the remainder of your retirement fund can be assigned to Guest House as a designated or unrestricted gift.

A Gift of Life Insurance from a past policy no longer needed because of the death of the original beneficiary or a newly created policy can benefit Guest House in many ways.

Charitable Lead Trusts provide income to Guest House over a set number of years and then transfer assets to children or other individual(s) named by the donor. This plan enables heirs to receive assets while minimizing taxes.

Gifts of Appreciated Assets, such as stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares, that have increased in value are another way of giving to Guest House. The donor receives an itemized income tax deduction for the full current value and also avoids tax on the increase in value. Real estate and other appreciated assets may be helpful to Guest House, and you may be able to continue living in a residence while saving on taxes. Other assets that may make helpful gifts while saving taxes include closely held stock, business practices (law, medicine, etc.), partnerships, contracts, leases, royalties and patents.

Honor & Memorial Gifts

Honor and Memorial Gifts are thoughtful ways to mark a special occasion or honor the life or memory of a relative or friend. To make an honor or memorial gift, send your contribution and acknowledgment information (for notification purposes) to Guest House.

Consider an Honor or Memorial Gift to celebrate or recognize an individual’s or group’s important milestone or event:

  • Births and Birthdays
  • Weddings and Anniversaries
  • Graduations and Retirements
  • Mother’s or Father’s Day
  • Life’s Successes and Joys (Good Luck, Best Wishes or Congratulations)
  • Illness (Get Well)
  • Times of Sympathy
  • Times of Appreciation (Thank You)

Your gift will be immediately acknowledged with a card sent to the honored person or group or to the family member of a deceased. A personal message on the card will let them know that a thoughtful donation has been made in their name or the name of a loved one.

Please contact Darren Hogan at 248-393-8939. 

Corporate & Foundation Giving

The addiction treatment and aftercare programs at Guest House are devoted exclusively to clergy and men and women religious who are suffering from alcoholism, addictions and other behavioral health conditions.
