The Sisters of St. Francis Foundation of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia was established by the congregation to seek financial support for sisters’ ministries among the poor, sisters’ retirement, and other designated needs. Through their mission, the sisters strive to be a healing, compassionate presence to the people of God in a violent world. The ability to live the mission depends on resources generated from external sources.
How we get our funding
As the development vehicle for the Sisters of St. Francis, the foundation does direct mail appeals three times a year (St. Francis Day, Christmas, and Easter). In addition to these appeals, there are special events conducted throughout the year. Also available through the foundation are memorial cards and memorials (plaques, trees, bricks, and benches) to honor and memorialize loved ones and friends.
The foundation also seeks opportunities to participate in grants, matched gifts, and other corporate or foundation gifts that might support our ministries or support our retired sisters.
