Support the Mission

“…All I have and call my own, you have given all to me. To you Lord, I return it…”

In the spirit of the Suscipe Prayer by St. Ignatius of Loyola, we invite you to consider what God has given to you and how a portion might benefit others. Donations to Ignatius House make focused, charitable programs possible for those in hardship, for those recovering from addiction or homelessness, for recent immigrants rebuilding their lives, for responsible environmental care, and more. Help the full mission flourish with a gift to Ignatius House operations. We invite you to direct your gift to a particular program or allow us to determine where it is needed most. Thank you.

At least 33% of mission revenues will come from generous donors,
like you.

Although Catholic, Ignatius House receives no sustaining funds from the Vatican, Society of Jesus (“Jesuits”) or the Archdiocese of Atlanta. We never want to turn away anyone of any faith who seeks new closeness with God. Help us support one another through life’s major milestones and big questions.

Your gift can:

  • fund the Niel Jarreau, SJ Scholarship Fund for retreatants in financial hardship.
  • help those in transitional housing find hope through the Ignatian Spirituality Project at Ignatius House.
  • give focus to low-income teens who are discerning their futures.
  • underwrite free programs that promote Christian spirituality and interfaith dialogue.
  • support the Jesuits through their vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience to a mission defined by the Pope.
  • maintain the serenity of 20 forested acres for all to enjoy.
  • foster an environment that allows all areas of the organization to function at their fullest.
