Experience Together

SSND teams up with Give STL Day

giveSTL.org logoOn May 11, School Sisters of Notre Dame is collaborating with Give STL Day. Give STL Day is an online day of giving where nonprofits across the St. Louis area will reach out to supporters to share our mission and raise funds. The Greater Community Foundation of St. Louis hosts the online event and in 2016, Give STL Day generated a total of $2.15 million for more than 900 nonprofits. This is the first year we are participating and we need your help to make it a success!

Everyone can be a philanthropist. We are asking people in the St. Louis area to get behind this effort and give. Large and small gifts will combine for big impact— it is time to think big. All the funds raised will benefit ministry needs. Your gifts will help sisters to continue in their ministries like:

  • Caring for immigrants and refugees through the Immigrant and Refugee Women’s Program, an independent nonprofit that teaches basic English and living skills to help refugee and immigrant women gain independence and start a new life in the United States.
  • Advocating for Creation with sisters to protest and advocate against the West Lake Landfill in St. Louis County and the hazardous burning of nuclear waste.
  • Educating youth through the English Tutoring Project, a collaboration between SSND and other women religious, which provides English tutoring for students learning English as a second language to help gain academic success.

Your gifts make a difference in helping us transform the world through education.

  • Green Hope Gardens
         are a sign of mercy
    In 2010, SSND associates in Ohio and West Virginia reflected on what they could do to nourish those in need while being good stewards of the land. The result was Green Hope Gardens, which contributes fresh vegetables to the local food pantry. What acts of mercy can you do to help ease someone’s suffering?
  • Sisters publish
         Land Ethic Statement
    In 1875, SSND foundress, Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, wrote, "We must responsibly cherish God's work." Her words resonate with Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, Laudato Si' which calls all of us to action to “care for our common home.” What can you do to respond to the pope’s call for action?
