Support the Sisters on Giving Tuesday

Have you heard about Giving Tuesday? It’s a day that is designed to “connect diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.”

Giving Tuesday logoSince 2012, Giving Tuesday has been promoted on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as a “kick-off to the charitable season,” at a time when many people consider their end-of-year giving options.  We hope that this year on Tuesday, November 27, you will consider making a tax-deductible charitable gift to the School Sisters of St. Francis in support of our ministries around the world.

Your Giving Tuesday gift will benefit the thousands of children, women and men with whom our sisters minister through education, health care, pastoral ministry, and meeting basic human needs.
