Make a Gift to Support Our Mission

At Ignatius House, we strive to create a welcoming and peaceful space where individuals can deepen their relationship with God, connect with others, and become more fully alive. Our retreats offer an opportunity to unplug from the chaos of everyday life and are designed to help people of all backgrounds find rest, renewal, and spiritual direction. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to encounter God in a sacred space of peace and quiet. That’s why we offer spiritual retreats and a variety of charitable programs that are open to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

But we can’t do it alone.

We rely on the generosity of donors like you to ensure our retreats and programs are accessible to all who seek them. Your gift, no matter the size, has the power to make a difference in someone’s life. It can help them find peace, deepen their faith, and discern God’s will amidst life’s major milestones and big questions.
