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.
“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.”

A will is a written legal document that controls the distribution of your property after your death. A will is your only
guarantee that your estate will be distributed according to your wishes. By including the Sisters of St. Francis in your will, you will help to ensure the care of the sisters in their retirement years and the continuation of their ministries.
