Carrying It Forward
Ignatius House welcomes all people who come here in search of “something” and ultimately experience what matters most in their lives – GOD – and the experience is profound. We know that this experience, this encounter with the God who loves us, is transformative and it is our privilege to be the caretakers of this sacred space.
Ignatius House relies on the generosity of benefactors and donors to help us keep this sacred space welcoming and open. We do not receive sustaining funds from the Archdiocese or the Province, and ask you to please consider a donation to Ignatius House as a sustaining monthly donor or with a one-time gift.
We are able to partially offset some of the operating costs with fees from retreats and other programs, but we need your financial support so that we can continue to lovingly care for this retreat house and the beautiful grounds.
Ignatius House Retreat Center is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and your charitable gift is tax deductible. Donations of all types are accepted including cash, stocks or other marketable securities, insurance proceeds, and bequests. If you have any questions about a donation or would like to discuss the best way to financially support Ignatius House, please contact Cathi Spornick, Director of Development. She can be reached at 404.255.0503 extension 227 or at email@example.com.
