The St. Ignatius Outreach Fund was established to give witness to our faith community’s option for and solidarity with the poor and vulnerable, a key theme of Catholic Social Tradition.
Financial assistance is given only to those nonprofit agencies, organizations, or groups beyond our parish boundaries whose mission is to educate, advocate, and take action on behalf of the poor and marginalized, and who work toward changing structural injustice. Funds are received from parish sources and individual donations and are distributed twice a year.
To make contributions or memorials, or to receive an application form to request assistance from the Outreach Fund, contact Joanie Schaffer.
The St. Ignatius Outreach Fund Committee meets twice a year: near the beginning of the St. Ignatius fiscal year (in July or August), and again approximately six months later (in January or February). Meetings are held in the chairperson’s home.
Please contact John Barnhorst, Pat LaMonte, Bill Re, Joanie Schaffer, or Cathy Phillips for more information.
