Ways to Give

The Augustinian Fund strengthens the mission of the Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova. Generous benefactors sustain the Augustinian way of life through support for the care of our elderly and infirm friars and the education and training of new members to the Augustinian Order. The Fund also provides support for Augustinian ministries that serve the poor and marginalized in foreign missions in Japan and Peru, the Augustinian Volunteer program and the Province’s Justice and Peace Initiatives.


Checks may be made payable to Office of Advancement and Communications and can be mailed to:

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. The impact of your gift to Augustinian Fund may be doubled or possibly tripled! To check if your company participates in a matching gift program speak with your Human Resources representative.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

You can make a gift to support the Augustinians in memory of or in honor of a friar, relative, or friend.  Making an honorary or memorial gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person’s life and accomplishments. Please contact Jennifer Dixon, Assistant Director of Advancement Services, at 610-527-3330 ext. 260 for more information.

Stocks and Securities

A charitable gift of stock provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting the Augustinian Fund. Electronic delivery of stock shares is the most secure and expedient delivery process available and provides efficient internal control as well as cost savings.

To help you facilitate a gift of stock, you will need to:

1. Provide your broker with the following stock transfer instructions:

JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.

2. Call or email Madonna Sutter (610) 527-3330, ext. 265 to inform her of your intention to make a stock gift and the name of the stock that your broker will transfer.

The true value of the gift is calculated on the date JP Morgan Chase Bank receives the stock by taking the high and low share price to determine a mean share price which will provide the actual gift value for the donor’s tax purposes.

The Legacy of

St. Augustine in the Catholic Church

Augustine was a thoughtful, empathetic, and loving servant of God. He valued community, welcomed others, and treated them the way they deserved to be treated. Augustine also laid the foundation for the Order of St. Augustine. The Order continues to explore ways to care for those in great need both in our Province work throughout Massachusetts, New Jersey, and surrounding states and in our greater missions throughout the world.

We invite you to continue to learn about St. Augustine, his life, and his teachings.

Sign up for our e-newsletter, where we share news and updates on how we continue to follow in St. Augustine’s footsteps.
