What is Mission Advancement?
Since its beginning in 2001, the Office of Mission Advancement has been the official and privileged link between the Sisters of IHM and you, our faithful supporters. We have been entrusted with the all-important task of keeping in touch with family and friends, sharing stories of our sisters on-mission, supporting our educational and catechetical activity in North and South America, and working to meet the retirement needs of our sisters in Camilla Hall.
The Mission Advancement Office offers support and encouragement for all IHM ministries and Camilla Hall, our Congregational Nursing Home.
To achieve this goal the Mission Advancement staff
- collaborates with the General Administration, Regional Superiors and appropriate committees to assess ministerial needs;
- presents proposals for new projects to the General Administration;
- supports IHM Sisters engaged in new as well as ongoing projects;
- solicits funds to support the needs of Camilla Hall and IHM ministries;
- establishes and maintains a donor prospect database for use during the IHM Annual Appeal
Why give a gift?
Most people give to charity. Most want to know that their financial support is being used for the purpose intended. We guarantee that every dollar contributed makes its way to an IHM ministry that is in special need or to the Congregational retirement fund. Many donors have been educated by the IHM Sisters, some have daughters or relatives in the community, and some have been partners in ministry with us over our long history. A few know us indirectly but have caught the IHM spirit through friends and relatives. However we are connected, the bond is strong and lasting. Best of all, your gift entitles you to be remembered in the daily prayers of every IHM Sister on-mission and the redemptive prayers and works of our sisters living in Camilla Hall, affectionately known as our Powerhouse of Prayer. This is our gift to you in return for your gift to us. So why give a gift? Click here to read what others have to say.
