Ways To Give

Special Gifts





The Ursuline Sisters appreciate the generosity shown to us over the years. Friends and benefactors have made it possible for us to continue to care for our retired and infirm Sisters and to respond through this ministry to the needs of people as they arise. For this we are deeply grateful.

Should the occasion arise that you want to consider a Special Gift to the Ursuline Sisters we would like to offer the following suggestions.

  • Cash – unrestricted gifts for general support directed to those areas where our needs are most pressing!
  • Pledge a Monthly Gift – This can be done in various ways listed below:
  • 1. Write a check and mail it to us.

    Ursuline Provincialate

    Attention: Jennifer Lanser, Director of Development and Communications

    We would be pleased to provide envelopes for each month at your request.

  • Remember the Ursulines in Your Will – You can bequeath a gift to the Ursulines by including us in your will. Our legal title is:

  • Life Insurance Policy – Name the Ursuline Sisters as a beneficiary on an existing, paid up Life Insurance Policy

  • Matching Gifts – Make arrangements for a matching gift from your place of employment or, if you are retired, through a corporate giving program from a place of former employment.
  • Gifts in Kind – art, equipment, supplies, or services
  • Gifts of Real Estate or personal property – a gift of real estate, land, vacation home, or personal residence; or collections of works of art may be eligible for the same tax benefits as gifts of securities. An appraisal is required to establish the fair market value of the gift for tax purposes.



Before making any decisions regarding significant charitable gifts we suggest that you consult with your attorney, accountant, or financial advisor. This will safeguard your interests and those of your family.
