AS A DONOR Jim and Katie Doyle
“We believe in supporting the Benedictine tradition, which is to offer hospitality to all visitors with no questions asked. We have observed this tradition in action.
“We believe in the mission of the Benedictine Sisters and know they live out this tradition in so many ways. We have been firsthand recipients of their talents and caring starting with grade school, progressing through raising our four children in our middle years, and now as senior citizens.
“The Sisters have given much to us through their Spiritual Development programs at places like McCabe Renewal Center, and through Peace and Justice offerings at the college.
“The Benedictine Sisters set the gold standard in offering programs and utilizing investments in productive areas throughout our community. We know our donations to the Sisters are put to good use.”

Your Giving
Charitable contributions to St. Scholastica Monastery strengthen and enhance the lives of our elderly Sisters and the ministry work in which our Sisters continue to serve: in spiritual direction, community outreach, education, health care, peace and justice, governance, renewal and retreat outreach, creative arts, and sponsorship.

To all who make contributions, we live and grow because of you. We are blessed and grateful.

Donors may designate a special purpose for their gift or give in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Charitable Bequests
While planning for your future and after taking care of your family, we invite you to consider a bequest to the Sisters, which will offer a valuable tax savings.

Charitable bequests are easy gifts to make and can be given in any dollar amount. If you would like to designate the Sisters in your will or trust, please talk to your plan administrator, and let us know your intentions. A donor who designates the Sisters in their will, trust, or insurance policy is recognized as a Covenant Donor. Covenant Donor’s names are inscribed in a book in the Eucharistic Chapel in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel and on our donor recognition board in the Monastery entry.

Please contact us for more information or questions on how you wish the Sisters to minister and to fulfill your bequests.

We offer an online option for donations through Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards. Your card information goes directly and securely to Authorize.Net where your gift is safely processed. We ask you for contact information for record cross-matching and for sending you a written acknowledgement. The credit card must be issued by a U.S. bank.
