SOAR! Celebrates 30 Years of Caring
In 2016 SOAR! reaches a milestone, the organization’s 30th anniversary.
Thanks to you, our faithful benefactors and supporters, SOAR! remains strong and our mission is still focused and clear – to help aging men and women religious. The fact that we are celebrating 30 years of caring means that the need for which SOAR! was founded still exists. Today, 30 years since the financial crisis facing religious in the U.S. was brought to light, there are still congregations of religious that do not have sufficient funds to care for their aging members.
And so we carry on. And thanks to your support, we continue to change lives and make a difference. In its first full year of operation in 1987, SOAR! distributed grants to 11 congregations. In 2015 SOAR! awarded 61 grants. The outreach of SOAR! grows with each and every donation you send. Your financial support is the foundation of our 30 years of caring.
Throughout our anniversary year, we’ll be looking back on our past – and looking forward to sharing our mission with new generations.
