Ways to Give

There are many ways to support the Dominican Sisters of Springfield. Here you may find the way that's best for you.

Dominican Legacy Society.
When you arrange for a planned gift of any size to the Dominican Sisters, you join the Dominican Legacy Society. You and your family remain perpetually in the daily prayers of our sisters. Your name or a memorial of your choosing will also be included on a plaque in the chapel of the Dominican Sisters. Download the Dominican Legacy Society Brochure here, or request an appointment with Sister Kathleen Anne Tait to discuss your options.

Annual giving.
An annual gift made at the time of a significant religious holiday (St. Dominic’s Day, Christmas) or personal milestone (a wedding anniversary) is a way to align your giving with your desire to express gratitude for the role of the sisters or God’s blessing in your life.

Bearers of the Flame.
A monthly gift made through our secure online donors’ portal or through your online banker helps you and us with financial planning. It’s a safe and convenient way to give for many people.

Memorials and tributes.
Offering your gift in honor of a living Dominican Sister or other significant person, or in memory of a loved one or sister who has died is a meaningful way to give for many of our donors.

Choose Your Giving Plan

Not sure how to give? Here are some options. For more details, contact Sister Kathleen Anne Tait using the form on this page or by calling 217-787-0481.

Cash Gifts.
Donation of cash is a quick and easy way to give immediate support. Gifts can be made using cash, check, e-check, or credit card. One-time or re-occurring donations can be made at the donate button on the website.

Non-Cash Gifts.
Stocks and bonds can be contributed directly to the Dominican Sisters with certain tax advantages to the donor based on current market value on the date that the gift is received.

Matching Gifts.
Some employers offer a matching gift program which allows employees the opportunity to increase the value of their charitable gift. The employer will send a check to the Dominican Sisters which matches the gift of the employee.

Honorary and Memorial Gifts.
An honorary gift is a way to recognize a living person for any special occasion or accomplishment. Memorials are donations made in memory of a deceased friend or loved one.

Foundation Gifts.
The Dominican Sisters of Springfield participate in the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln. Donations can be made to the foundation for the benefit of the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, on-line at www.cfll.org or by calling 217-789-4431.

Planned Gifts.
Many planned gifts require the assistance of legal or financial advisors. Most planned gifts are deferred gifts promising future support of the Dominican Sisters and have the potential for a lasting impact for the Sisters. When naming the Dominican Sisters as a beneficiary of a bequest, contact the Office of Mission Advancement for more information.
