Ways to Give

Giving is a work of neighborly love and an act that gives glory and honor to God. If you would like to share your blessings with the Franciscan Sisters and our ministries, we have many ways to do this, so that it is easy and convenient for you. Choose the way that's best for you!


Text a dollar amount to 1.815.671.4256 to make a donation or an event payment. You can designate how the donation is used by selecting the fund. You can even designate different amounts for more than one fund. You can make your gift recurring to continue to bless the Sisters with your generosity and help expand their works of neighborly love further.


See the quick and easy form below to make an online donation or event payment. Consider recurring gifts on a schedule that you choose. Please note: Withdrawing from a bank account lowers our processing fee substantially. While we accept Credit and Debit cards, we encourage you to select Bank Account when possible. Don’t go in debt– We do not wish to see anyone go into debt by giving on a credit card.


Use this form to mail in your donation. Our mailing address is 9201 W St Francis Road, Frankfort, IL 60423-8330.


Call Gerry Guzaitis at 815.464.3882 to make a payment by credit card over the phone or to ask any questions you may have.

Your recurring gift is a great support to us, especially during this difficult time!
