General Needs

Contribute to the general needs of the friars, our mission, and our province. We rely on the generosity of people like you for the continuation of our ministry, and any amount helps.


Help support our seminarians and student friars in formation as they prepare to serve the Church and God by becoming Capuchin lay brothers and priests.

Retired Friars

Friars dedicate their entire lives to serving others. Your donation provides for the needs of our aging friars including general retirement needs, healthcare, and nursing home costs.

Capuchin Family Kitchen Food Truck

Support the work of the friars as they regularly serve the homeless in Los Angeles and San Francisco from The Capuchin Family Kitchen Food Truck.

Mexico Missions

Join the friars by supporting the provincial mission in Northern Mexico and the Custody of San Juan Diego.

More Ways to Give

Reach out to our Development Office to inquire about these alternative forms of giving.

Securities & Stocks

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to our organization.

Wills & Trusts

In your will or living trust, you may specify that you would like a portion of your estate to benefit the Capuchins. By including the Capuchins in your estate plans, you benefit generations to come.


You are welcome to donate appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property.


Frequently overlooked as a source for donations, life insurance policies that have outlived their original purpose can translate into a substantial gift.


You may donate part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or other tax-deferred plan.


Select “Capuchin Franciscan Order of CA” as your charity on and 0.5% of your purchase will be donated to the Capuchins at no additional cost to you!
