Your donation to Sisters of Providence, Mother Joseph Province, helps us advocate and care for our neighbors who are poor and vulnerable as we have been called to do for 179 years. It also assists with the support of our sisters who have dedicated their lives in service to these communities.

Last year your gifts helped nearly 200 nonprofits through the Emilie Gamelin Mission Fund Committee and Leadership Team donations. These organizations received support through grants, memberships, sponsorships, operating funds, salaries, stipends, capital campaign contributions, program advertisements, tuition and scholarships to continue work that aligns with the mission of Sisters of Providence.

We gratefully receive your donation in any amount as a generous gift from the heart for those who need it most.
