Thank you for visiting our website. Support Our Aging Religious, Inc. (SOAR!) has assisted Catholic religious congregations in the United States in their time of financial need since 1986. We are most grateful to all donors who make the SOAR! Grant Program possible.
Over 1,000 grants totaling almost $14 million have been awarded to over 400 religious congregations in 43 states and Puerto Rico. Donations help to renovate space for handicapped accessibility; purchase electric beds and handicapped accessible vans; and install fire alarm, nurse call, and wandering systems.
These grants have ensured the personal security and safety of many elderly and infirm religious and their caregivers. Charitable donations are the foundation SOAR!’s work, and we continue to be blessed by generous donors. There are a number of ways to give — large and small.
