In less than a decade, Giving Tuesday has grown to inspire hundreds of millions of people to participate and donate to charitable causes on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. On November 30, we ask our friends to support our community by visiting www.sssf.org and making a donation to support the care of our retired sisters.
We also encourage those who connect with our community on social media to share their own “sister stories.” Followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter can comment with their favorite memories about the sisters: their first interaction, their favorite teacher, or a lasting impression that they had.
Last year, one Facebook follower recalled a special bond she has had with Sister Corina Stifter since she was a sixth grader at Holy Ghost School in Milwaukee. Another talked about her connection with Sister Bernardin Deutsch while attending Alverno College, and others shared fond memories of the sisters who taught at Alvernia High School in Chicago.
Mission Advancement Director Pam Mueller noted, “We don’t just measure success in dollars, but in fostering relationships with our current donors and hopefully with new friends who align with our mission and values.”
We invite you to pray for the success of this initiative, and prayerfully consider making a gift on this Giving Tuesday (or at any time). Simply click the “Donate Now” button at the top of this page to get started.
Please wait while we gather your results.
Lay associates share the School Sisters of St. Francis’ commitment to spiritual growth, gospel values, and social impact.
We remember our sisters who have died since March 2020, when our funerals could no longer be open to the public.
Your gift today will light the flames of joy, love, hope, and grace to brightly Reflect Christ’s Light into the lives of those we serve through our missions.
