Founded in 1929, the Circus Saints & Sinners is a non-sectarian, non-political association of successful professionals dedicated to fellowship and community service through charitable giving. The group’s name serves as a metaphor, with the members—due to their human imperfections—representing “sinners,” who strive to be “saints” of mercy by helping those in need.
In the early years, the focus was on providing aid to retired circus performers in need of financial assistance. Since then, we’ve evolved into a modern, nonprofit philanthropic organization and now contribute to a multitude of worthy charities.
Where most civic and fraternal organizations have chapters, the Saints and Sinners groups are called “tents” in reference to the canvas tent used to house a circus performance.
