Sarah Hallett Society

This prestigious society was named for Sarah Hallett, a dedicated volunteer for many years, who left Saint Elizabeth a transformational bequest to benefit those we serve. It was because of her generosity that Saint Elizabeth was able to secure land in East Greenwich. This allowed Saint Elizabeth Home to be relocated from Providence and a new nursing home to be built, which opened in 2001.

We don't know much about Sarah Hallet. We know she was the daughter of a painter, sister of an Episcopal priest, and was the last of her family. We are committed to keeping her legacy alive. Sarah Hallet is a true example of the impact one person can make. The Sarah Hallett Society recognizes individuals who have made a very personal and generous commitment to support the work of Saint Elizabeth Community.

These individuals include:

  • Legacy Members - have informed Saint Elizabeth of a legacy gift intention such as a bequest or other planned gift through their estate.
  • Leadership Members - have achieved a cumulative lifetime gift of $10,000 or more.
  • Visionaries - have a legacy gift intention and are leadership donors.
  • Named Fund Donors - have given special purpose funds to support one of a variety of Saint Elizabeth Community programs and services.

Members of the Sarah Hallett Society are considered to be Saint Elizabeth Community's closest friends. As a member, you will receive newsletters, special updates, and invitations to special donor events as well as our Signature Events. Current members of the society and inductees are also invited to attend the annual Celebration of Philanthropy luncheon held the first Thursday of May.

Saint Elizabeth Community was founded on a spirit of philanthropy that has grown over generations. We are proud to recognize and celebrate this special group and their incredible impact on the elders and families who benefit from their commitment and generosity.
