The sisters treasure your financial support!

The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods have always treasured our friends who give a donation every month. Now we have created an official program called Providence GEMs (Gives Every Month), to show our appreciation for these faithful givers and to shine a light on monthly giving.

When a person gives monthly to the Sisters of Providence, it allows us to plan for the future knowing we have those recurring funds. When you give monthly it is a great way to support our mission and ministries. You help ensure a bright future for many people in need of loving care and support. As a monthly giver you also help provide long-term care for elder sisters and support the ongoing legacy of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. You can feel assured that the sisters depend on you and are praying for you daily.

You make a difference

Monthly donors make a big difference! According to Network for Good, monthly donors often give more over time, remain loyal donors longer and stay more engaged. And younger donors and those on a budget often find donating monthly more doable than making a larger one-time donation.

Perhaps you’d like to donate to the Sisters of Providence but you feel that a small donation will not accomplish much. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Every dollar helps and it all adds up. A monthly gift of $10 becomes $120 in just one year!

You can set up your online monthly giving using a credit or debit card or you can have it automatically transferred from your bank account.

As a monthly giver, you belong to one of the most loyal groups of benefactors the Sisters of Providence have. And we will recognize you with these special benefits of being a Providence GEM:

  • Providence GEM membership card
  • Quarterly email or text communication with news on how your donations make a difference
  • Subscription to HOPE magazine 3x per year
  • Recognition on the Together in Mission Wall
  • Providence GEM keychain from the Woods

For more information visit Gems.SistersofProvidence.org or call Diane Weidenbenner at 812-535-2802. Thank you for your ongoing prayers for the Congregation as well as your financial support.
