Development and Planned Giving

The Benedictine Sisters have always depended upon the generosity of our donors, friends and relatives.  You can assist the sisters and their ministries by making a gift to Mount St. Scholastica, a 501 c 3 not-for-profit corporation and your gifts are tax deductible. 

Ways to Give:

Gift of Cash:  The most common way to give is to simply write a check to Mount St. Scholastica.  Cash gifts are deductible and the sisters provide a receipt as required by the IRS for any gift of $250 or greater.  

By mail:  Send check or money order to:
