The Sisters of the Humility of Mary have announced the launch of the new online giving page of its website, humilityofmary.org.
The new pages lets donors easily direct where they want their contributions made, such as in honor or memory of a loved one; as a monthly gift; in celebration of a birthday, wedding, graduation, anniversary or reunion; as a dedication; as an event; and/or as a bequest.
"We especially like the "friend-raising" component of the new landing page, where someone can set up an occasion, such as a wedding, to enable friends and family to give to the Sisters' ministry fund in lieu of gifts to the couple," said Wendy Wareham, Sisters of the Humility of Mary development director. "This feature allows the person to email friends and family, share photos and give updates." To take a look, go to www.humilityofmary.org and click "support us" in the upper right corner. "I am very excited about the new landing page and hope it helps donors find what they need more quickly," said Wareham.
For more information on this or other giving opportunities to the ministries of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary, call Wareham at 724-964-8920, option one, Ext. 3232.
