Giving Tuesday 2021

The Capuchin Franciscans are participating in Giving Tuesday this year! We are so blessed to have continuous supporters like YOU who help us to continue the good works of Saint Francis. As Capuchins, we strive to follow in his footsteps, and your generosity is the only way that we are able to do so. We cannot thank you enough for your selflessness and kindness as we grow and welcome more holy men into our Order.

What is Giving Tuesday you may ask?

Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. The purpose for this day is to encourage people to give back in whatever way they can. It is a global day of giving, and we are so fortunate that we are able to participate this year. As we grow, so does our online presence as well as our capacity for receiving online gifts. Again, we couldn’t do this without YOU! All of your prayers and financial support has allowed us to get to where we are today.

Though more men join us every year, we have elderly and aging friars who many of you know and love dearly. Father Gerald and Father Brian in Burlingame. Father Alan Wilson in Oakland and Father Joseph Slominski at San Lorenzo. The needs for their medical care, housing, and general living expenses are funded by people like you! These men have been here a majority of their lives and now it is up to us to care for them during their later years.

This year we have a goal of $15,000 to help us support and take care of our elderly friars. Your gift will allow us to cover their healthcare, food, medical bills and so much more. BUT THERE’S MORE!

A generous benefactor has agreed to match ALL donations up to $15,000! That means your gift has double the impact. Your $100 donation turns into $200, a $500 donation turns into $1,000, and $1,000 is doubled to $2,000!

The Capuchin Franciscan Friars continue to follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis. For Giving Tuesday, we are asking for your support in allowing them to continue this good work.
