Generosity in Full Bloom!


When we give generously, with an abundance mentality,
what we give away will multiply.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Erie Community Foundation’s 2023 Erie Gives Day a tremendous success. 

We received $37,010 from 300 donors and surpassed our goal of a 20% increase in donors. We were hoping for 40 new donors, and there were 97! In addition, donors gave generously to our Erie- based sponsored ministries: St. Mary’s Home of Erie received $12,515 from 85 donors, SSJ Neighborhood Network received $27,050 from 210 donors, and St. Patrick’s Haven received $28,250 from 183 donors.*

It’s the generosity of so many and your faith in us that help fulfill our mission of unity of neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God.

Thank you.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania
