The innovative spirit of the Sisters of Providence is backed by thousands of individual donors. While we believe there are many ways to partner with us in our life and mission of the Sisters of Providence, charitable giving provides the financial means for us to extend our mission into the future.

BasketSeveral charitable giving opportunities are available to support the life and mission of the Sisters of Providence.

  • Annual giving – gifts in response to direct mail appeals, HOPE publications, our annual Phonathon or sent directly to the Mission Advancement office.
  • Honor/Memorial gifts – Any gift can be made in honor of/in memory of an individual, group or organization by noting such when the gift is made. The names of persons honored or remembered are listed each month in a book which is kept in the south corridor leading to the Church of the Immaculate Conception. Also Foley Park Pavers program is a great way to honor or memorialize your loved ones.
  • Cash alternative gifts – include a stock gift, securities, wills, IRAs, annuities, trusts, life insurance, real estate and prized collections.
  • Remembrance Cards – individuals can remember loved ones on special occasions while contributing to the Sisters of Providence.

Shop and give

When feasible, the Sisters of Providence participate in charity giving programs that allow people to give in a variety of ways. We like the fact that these programs allow people to become donors or to donate more than usual by just doing their normal shopping. These programs work at no additional cost to you. We are currently expanding these opportunities. Please email if you have suggestions for other programs.
