Support Our Aging Religious -- SOAR!
The needs of elderly Catholic Sisters, Brothers and Priests in religious orders are critical. We distribute grants to these Communities to ensure the safety and dignity of their aging members.
Federal and postal employees and military personnel can give at work through the Combined Federal Campaign. Starting in 2017, they can make their donation or pledge through a central CFC website. This new website is one of several changes that are greatly lowering the CFC's costs, which means nearly all your donation will go to the charities you support. Here's more on the CFC's changes.
To support this charity navigate to the CFC site by clicking "Give through the CFC Now". From there click "Find a CFC Charity." In the "Charity" field, put in the charity's name or, if that doesn't work, its CFC number.
Sisters, Brothers and religious order Priests – who have given their lives to the Church and its work -- are facing a crisis. Many worked for only modest stipends. As their median age rises, their communities have little for retirement. Healthcare costs have soared. In response, SOAR! awards grants to congregations of Catholic Sisters, Brothers and Priests to care for their retired members. Your donation addresses their immediate needs and ensures their safety, comfort and dignity. Please help.
