How to Make a Donation to the Association

One-Time Gifts

A charitable gift of cash can be made by sending a check made out to St. Francis de Sales Association to our national treasurer.

It is also a simple process to contribute to our mission by means of a transfer of stock or other marketable securities. Our association maintains an investment fund to financially support projects and initiatives that maintain and strengthen the Society of Saint Francis de Sales throughout the world each year.

Please contact our national treasurer for the necessary information.
