Ministry Grants are available to assist a Daughter of Charity in her ministry. The Sister must be actively involved with the project. Actively involved is defined as being an employee of the organization working on the project or a volunteer integral to the project.


Grant requests must be for less than $25,000 and endorsed by a Daughter of Charity. Salary items are not an eligible expense.

Example: A Sister working as a tutor in a school may apply for funds for paper, books, supplies, etc. –  items needed over and above what is supplied by the school.

NO DEADLINE – Ministry Grant requests may be submitted at any time throughout the year.
