Designating Your Gift

Donations may be designated for any of the following areas or for the “Greatest Need” which helps the sisters with their current needs and priorities.

Sisters’ greatest need.
This designation allows us to put your gift to work immediately wherever the need is most urgent or unexpected.

Retirement fund and healthcare.
A gift to this fund provides assisted or skilled nursing care for our senior sisters.

Ministry to the underserved.
Though we could have chosen otherwise, we’ve made it a priority to respond to situations of great need where others are unwilling or unable to go. Your gift to this fund supports the ministry of sisters serving in the inner city, literacy centers, underserved rural areas, and health clinics in the U.S. and Peru.

Care of Earth and Jubilee Farm.
This designation supports our work to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of Earth at Jubilee Farm and to transition to clean, green energy at Sacred Heart Convent and other facilities we own.

Peruvian Mission.
Help our Peruvian Dominican Sisters be the face of Jesus for the people of Lima and the villagers of the Andes as they labor with and for the poor in a place where people and the land suffer centuries of abuse, neglect, and political upheaval.

New member education.
Help us welcome new members with your support for programs and experiences that will attract, invite, and prepare the next generation of Dominican Sisters.

Cor Unum.
A gift to this new ministry in Springfield enables our sisters to help young adult women discover their spiritual depth, create change for a better world, and be of service. Cor Unum, meaning One Heart, includes a residential component for up to three women who want to immerse themselves in a life of prayer, community, study, and service. Learn more here.
