Each year, the IHM congregation faces growing financial challenges for retirement and skilled health care.
The continually increasing costs of daily living have been met by a careful use of our sisters’ earnings, Social Security and the IHM Retirement Fund. However, this does not cover all retirement expenses for our sisters. The support of our friends and former students is vital to meet this challenge. We rely on you, our friends — new and old — to help bridge the gap between our financial resources and the actual cost of providing retirement services. Our Motherhouse provides us with the opportunity to live independently, along with options in assisted living, health care or memory care. Your support of our retired sisters helps us maintain the quality services we are committed to providing for them, women who have done so much for countless people.
Your gift is a wonderful way to show your support at a time when we need it most. Many of you have told us how we helped to shape your values, nurtured you and guided your development. Your gift helps us with our basic needs and also allows us to continue the many ministries that benefit our communities.
