The Augustinian Fund

Show Your Support For The Augustinians

The Augustinian Fund builds a reliable source of annual revenue to assist the Province in meeting its financial responsibilities. Years ago, the friars’ earned salaries were sufficient to cover all our expenses. Today, however, with fewer friars in active ministry and salaried, we must rely on the generosity of friends and benefactors to help us sustain and grow our way of life and the ministries.

About The Augustinian Fund

Established in 2006, the Augustinian Fund supports the mission of the Province of St. Thomas of Villanova in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and our other regions in the East Coast. Our friends and benefactors offer financial support for the care of our elderly and infirm Augustinian Friars and the education and training of new members of the Augustinian Order. Additionally, the Fund provides support for Augustinian ministries that serve the poor and marginalized in foreign missions in Japan and Peru and the Province’s Justice and Peace initiatives.
