For more than 200 years, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have educated and taken a stand with the poor — especially women and children in the most abandoned places.
We change lives.
We need financial support from our generous donors because:
- We receive no diocesan support in any city where we live or work.
- We are responsible for our own living expenses including utilities, insurance, upkeep and maintenance as well as retirement and health benefits.
- Most of our Sisters work directly with the poor in places where there is no chance to earn a living wage.
Today, our Sisters are changing lives in the United States and around the world. With your help, we can continue to:
- Support the Sisters wherever the need is greatest
- Support the Sisters who work directly with the poor in the U.S.
- Support the Sisters' work in Latin American and Africa
- Support the continuation of Sister Dorothy Stang's work
- Support the care of frail and elderly Sisters
Your gift is used to supplement daily operations as well as other expenses incurred as we carry out the works of our congregation.

Your gift makes it possible for Sisters of the Ohio province to work directly with the poor in positions where a salary is not available or is inadequate. It will also support Sisters who work in unfunded special-needs programs in schools and provide for living expenses and benefits until a ministry's funding can be secured and is self-sufficient.

Your gift provides for the living expenses, education and spiritual preparation of our Sisters in the growing communities of Africa and Latin America. It supports Sisters who serve some of the world's most needy children and adults in these developing nations. It also supports the repair and construction of essential facilities. Our congregation is completely responsible for the living and education expenses of our Sisters. However, in these developing countries, only 25% of the Sisters' costs can be covered locally.

Your gift sees that the work begun by Sister Dorothy Stang will be sustained and expanded through educational initiatives here in the States and around the world. It will also provide direct support of programs in the Amazon region of Brazil where Sister Dorothy spent many years of her life.

Your gift is used to meet the retirement and health care needs of our most frail and elderly Sisters who have given so much to others. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur do not receive any funding from any diocese where we live or work and are entirely responsible for the retirement, health, and long-term care needs of our oldest Sisters.
