Join the Sedlack Society

The Sedlack Society was started in 2022 to celebrate the extraordinary donors who give $1,000 or more in support of our mission each year!

Honoring our Founder and Celebrating Your Generosity

The Sedlack Society was launched in 2022 to celebrate those extraordinary Talbot Interfaith Shelter donors who generously give $1,000 or more annually in support of our mission to provide Shelter, Stability, Support, and a path to Success for local families and individuals in need.  The Society was named in honor of our Founder, Evelyn Sedlack, whose tenacity and compassion were the driving forces behind the formation and early history of Talbot Interfaith Shelter.  Evelyn served as an inspiration to subsequent TIS leaders, who took up her mantle and made her vision a reality, with the assistance of incredible donors like you.  

Join the Sedlack Society and make an indelible impact on the lives of families and individuals facing homelessness in our community!

What will your Sedlack Society impact be?  There are 4 levels to choose from.


Your Shelter Level gift of $1,000 to $2,499 may provide four or more weeks of shelter and services for a guest in our S4 Program (Shelter, Stability, Support, Success)!


Your Stability Level gift of $2,499 to $4,999 could keep the lights on and the guests warm at both of our shelter facilities (Easton’s Promise for families and Evelyn’s Place for single men and women) for a month or longer!


Your Support Level gift of $5,000 to $9,999 can subsidize a family in one of our transitional apartments for a full year or longer!


Your Success Level gift of $10,000 or more may provide six months of additional services for one of our elderly guests, who need extra care and attention!
