Help us provide a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need

Our Mission is to Celebrate Life and Serve with Joy. Your contribution will help ensure that we can continue to serve others through our unmatched care and services in our senior living communities, Madonna Foundation and St. Jude House.

Franciscan Communities: Participating in charitable giving at one of our senior living communities is one way many of our residents and families celebrate their love, generosity and faith. There are a number of giving options to help us with our Greatest Needs. We also offer Tribute giving in honor or in memory of a loved one along with our Gift of Care Program, which provides financial assistance for residents in our senior living communities who find themselves in a difficult financial situation and need help to offset the cost of their care. Our residents choose us not only for the quality of care we offer, but for the strong sense of family our communities embody.

The Madonna Foundation promotes empowerment, academic achievement and a path to college. We award scholarships to students of all faiths who demonstrate financial need and a desire for academic success at one of our partner Catholic high schools. As students from first-generation and minority backgrounds, our scholars face barriers. Our programming helps them overcome these barriers and acquire the confidence, critical skills and competencies needed for success in high school, college and beyond. They will progress, graduate, and live faithful lives of excellence in leadership and service because of your investment in their future.

St. Jude House, a 40-bed domestic violence shelter located in Crown Point, Indiana, offers a safe haven for victims and their dependent children fleeing domestic abuse, providing meals, basic needs, crisis intervention, legal advocacy, support groups and specialized services for children. Since its inception in 1995, St. Jude House has served over 13,000 victims to help them heal from the trauma of domestic abuse and break the cycle of violence.

Your contribution of any amount will make a difference in the lives of those we serve. If you would like to select one of our missions or a specific community, please select the name of the mission or community in the ministry drop down box below. All gifts are tax-deductible.
