Other Ways to Help

Beside making a one-time gift, here are 8 more ways to help our children and support the mission of the Sisters of Mary:

Your donations are of course essential to enable the Sisters to do their work in our Villages for Children. Without the support of loyal friends like you, we could not consistently offer a roof, three meals and day and the necessary care and comprehensive education to more than 20,000 children who have been entrusted to us. Without you, our children could not escape poverty and have no hope in the future.

Besides your one-time donations, you can help our children in 8 other ways:

  • Support our mission with an automatic gift.
    One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to support us is to become a Guardian Angel of the Children, by making a regular gift by credit card or ACH debit.

  • Join your workplace giving program.
    Federal employees may support our mission through a contribution to the Combined Federal Campaign. Be sure to note our CFC number is: 18384. To learn about other workplace giving programs or matching gift opportunities, please refer to your employer for details.

  • Talk about World Villages for Children around you.
    If our work is of interest to them, you may suggest that they support our children through a contribution.

  • Gifts during celebrations and in honor of a loved one.
    At family celebrations or special events such as birthdays or weddings, ask your guests or your family \to make a donation to World Villages for Children in lieu of a traditional gift.

  • Gifts in Memoriam.
    Parents and friends may choose to make a gift in memoriam, and further support our mission:  consider asking others to honor the memory of your loved one with a gift to WVC, in lieu of flowers.
  • Specific actions during the year.
    Remember our children and share your blessings with the most needy during special times of the year like Easter, Christmas, or Lent. Specific fundraising activities may also be organized with your social clubs, or school for your children or grandchildren.
