Please Help Fund Our Ministry’s Endowment

Prayerfully consider helping us to continue to fulfill our mission to bring Christians to a deeper understanding of their vocation and mission in Christ, in the Church, and in the world. Help us to guide God’s people to healing, freedom and purpose in Christ. However you choose to donate, your generosity is appreciated. That appreciation comes from not only those who are presently being served – it comes also from future generations who will benefit from our healing ministry, our school, retreats, and other ministries. Our endowment goal of $5 million will provide for the permanent and perpetual financial resources to maintain and improve the quality of our programs and facilities.

An Endowment Fund has been established for the purpose of raising five million dollars to provide perpetual support to the ministries of the Marian Servants of Divine Providence.

Your endowment funds have a perpetual existence. Your gift will have an infinite capacity to keep giving far beyond your own lifetime. And, your endowment can provide a stable, predictable source of income for the ministries of the Marian Servants of Divine Providence. Please take time to prayerfully consider the benefits of estate gift planning and creating a legacy to further the ministries of our humble organization.

 

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

Psalms 127:1
