Planned Gifts

Planned Gifts are gifts that result from a person remembering St. Paul's Monastery in his or her will. Planned Gifts are a wonderful way to make a substantial gift when current obligations do not allow to do that.  Planned gifts ensure that your support for the Sisters and their ministries will continue long into the future.

Friends who let us know that they have included us in their will become members of our Legacy Society and may participate in our annual Legacy Society event.

Tribute Gifts
Tribute Pavers

Your gift can be a wonderful tribute to honor an important person in your life or remember a loved one who is deceased. 

When you make a gift in Honor of an important person in your life, we will send note to the person in whose name the gift was made.  This note does not include the amount of the gift.  You, the donor will receive a separate acknowledgement for your personal records.

When you make a gift in Memory of somebody, you may include the contact details of a family member of that person so that we may send a note to the family.  This note does not include the amount of the gift.  You, the donor will receive a separate acknowledgement for your personal records.

A tribute gift is the perfect way to celebrate an important event in your family's life such as a wedding, an anniversary, a baptism or ordination.  We will include your special event in our prayer intentions.

When you visit our new Gathering Plaza, you will see that many pavers bear the names of Sisters, Oblates, relatives, friends, and benefactors of St. Paul's Monastery. Your paver(s) may  honor a living person or remember a deceased Sister, family member or friend. New pavers are installed every spring and fall. To order a tribute paver, click here.

Gifts of Interest, Investment, Influence

The gift of interest is the energy and inspiration you bring to the Sisters and their ministries by connecting your passion with their vision.  Join them for prayer and conversation, volunteer at the Monastery and stay in touch with their news and plans.

The gift of investment in a financial contribution you make to share your resources with the Sisters.  Funds are used to provide for the needs of the Sisters and to advance their ministry projects and programs.

Above all, the gift of your influence is the capacity that you have to tell others about the Sisters of St. Paul's Monastery and their good works.
