Ways to Support

"Even a seemingly small act of generosity can grow into something far beyond what we could ever ask or imagine – the creation of a community of love in this world, and beyond this world…" Henri Nouwen

We are Partners in Ministry

The Sisters of St. Joseph Mission & Ministries Foundation – a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph – was created to raise and grant funds to support the Congregation, its ministries and other like-minded organizations.

When you make a gift to the Sisters of St. Joseph Mission & Ministries Foundation, you are more than a donor. You’re our partner in ministry.  Together – we bring hope and support to the poor and disenfranchised. We feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.  We care for children, women, families and seniors. We help refugees and immigrants adjust to their new home.  And we give voice to the voiceless – especially the victims of social injustice.

There are a variety of ways to join us in ministry.  Consider any of the following:

  • Gifts of cash
  • Monthly recurring gifts
  • Corporate matching gifts
  • Making a qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA
  • Transfer of appreciated securities 
  • Beneficiary designations – Ex. IRA, life insurance, trust, 
  • Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Lead Trust 
  • Designation from a Donor Advised Fund
  • Outright gift of life insurance
  • Designation in your will or estate plan

*Please contact your financial or legal advisor for guidance.
