Support Our Aging Religious, Inc. (SOAR!) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) grant-making organization. SOAR! is recognized in the Official Catholic Directory and is member of the National Catholic Development Conference.
SOAR! brings together people of all religious denominations across America whose lives have been touched by the unparalleled contribution Catholic sisters, brothers and priests have made to our families, our communities and our nation. Millions of us have been educated, cared for, comforted and prayed for by women and men religious. Our former educators and caregivers now need our help to ensure that they are able to live their “golden years” with the same dignity and safety we want for ourselves and our families.
The mission of SOAR! not only helps to ensure the safety and comfort of our aging religious but also enables all members of those congregations to continue in their active ministries. SOAR! seeks to accomplish this mission by:
- Raising and providing funds for congregations to meet immediate needs of their retired members;
- Educating the public about the serious retirement needs confronting elderly
- Developing a national network of concerned individuals who wish to respond to this need.
