“Learn, Earn, Return” are words that Al May lives by.  Growing up in St. Petersburg, Al has a strong affinity for the community and seeks to give back in a meaningful way. Now in the third step in that motto: return, Al has chosen to give to those most in need by supporting St. Petersburg Free Clinic.

Being involved in many great causes within our community, Al has chosen to help our most vulnerable neighbors by donating his time and treasure to St. Petersburg Free Clinic. As a former board member and current volunteer, his giving comes from a long history with the Free Clinic.  Witnessing the impact of his giving firsthand, Al enjoys coming in each week as a We Help Services volunteer, packing and giving out food to those in need.

He knows that the Free Clinic is a good steward of his dollars and that 93% of donations go directly to program support.

Al seeks opportunities for his giving to encourage or inspire others to give.  One way is through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) he has with the Community Foundation of Greater St. Petersburg.  He is able to contribute to the fund as his charitable budget allows and then request the funds be distributed to the St. Petersburg Free Clinic program he recommends.  But mostly he’s encouraging his friends to do good within the community.

Approaching charitable giving with a business mindset and a humble heart, Al’s generosity is an inspiration to those around him.  Because of you, Al, lives are changed every day.  Thank you to Al and others like him who plan their giving for today and in the future to strengthen this community.
