Time, talent, treasure:
How to give to The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago
Our volunteers make a priceless contribution to the quality of life at the Motherhouse in Lemont. Their infectious good cheer, the work they joyfully do, and the time they give to our Franciscan family are important to us. We're blessed to have volunteers working under the leadership of our sisters. Volunteers teach crafts, organize table games, lead exercise activities, write letters, visit the infirmary and do a variety of other good works that enrich our lives. Consider giving us a gift of yourself… your time and your talent. There are volunteer opportunities at all of our convents and facilities.

Gifts to The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago can be directed to the Development Department. Opportunities include our Unrestricted Fund (directed to wherever the need is greatest), the Retirement Fund, and the Legacy Fund. All gifts for memorials, tributes, and special intentions are sent to the Legacy Fund, our endowment. There, your gift keeps giving in perpetuity, and through your generosity, others will be helped, including our infirm and retired Sisters.
Here are some common ways our donors have provided for the Sisters:
All gifts are promptly acknowledged and include IRS information. All gifts are also acknowledged in our publications: our Annual Report and "Crossroads", the official, award-winning newsletter of The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago. Ask for a copy from our Development Office.
