How to support us

We invite you to consider supporting our IBVM ministries of education, spirituality and justice.


Support us with Prayer

You can offer spiritual support by including the ministry of IBVM Provinces around the world in your prayers.

Donations

You can make a monetary gift in the form of a simple donation, or a legacy to assist the work of the IBVM Sisters. Be assured that you, your generosity, will be remembered in our prayers. Your gift has a positive impact. Making a donation is a way to participate in our work and to support the care and ministry of the elderly and infirm sisters who have given so much throughout their lives.

Income tax receipts will be provided for accumulated amounts over $10.00. Donations assist the Loretto Sisters in their ministries as well as in the care and ministry of our retired and infirm sisters.

Designated Memorial Contributions

Another way to remember a loved one

Resurrection by Veronica Hagar IBVMResurrection by Veronica Hagar IBVMAmong the ways that supporters can help the Loretto Sisters is a special one that is sometimes overlooked. You may designate the Loretto Sisters as a favorite charity to which contributions can be made at the time of a loved one's death. A family can do this by including a statement in the obituary, such as: "Memorial contributions may be made to the Loretto Sisters." Such donations are fitting expressions of sympathy and lasting ways to remember those who have died. We are deeply grateful to families who designate the Loretto Sisters for memorial contributions.
