Support Us

The Sisters of St. Francis Foundation was created to provide support for the sisters’ ministries, their retirement, and other designated needs. With the help and support of the foundation’s board of trustees, the foundation seeks to develop methods of raising funds that increase awareness of the sisters’ ministries and enhance the congregation’s presence in communities through the United State and around the world.

Why Do the Sisters of St. Francis Need a Foundation?

Prior to 1994 the congregation did not engage in formal fundraising efforts.  By the early 1990s, circumstances warranted that the Sisters of St. Francis introduce a department specifically tasked to raise funds in order that the congregation could continue to fund sponsored and cosponsored ministries as well as to meet the sisters’ retirement needs.

We Consider Fundraising a Ministry

“Fundraising is proclaiming what we believe in such a way that we offer other people an opportunity to participate with us in our vision and mission.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen – A Spirituality of Fundraising
