Capuchin Companions
You can help the Capuchin Franciscan Friars do God's
work without ever writing another check.

A program of Monthly Giving that is:

  • Simple and convenient
  • Stretches your donations by cutting our cost
  • For those with a strong commitment to assisting the poor and needy
How does this monthly program work?
You decide on a monthly gift amount that fits your budget.  You then authorize your
bank to transfer this amount from your checking account directly to the Friars on a
monthly basis.  This can also be done using your credit card.

What are the benefits?
To the Friars, your donation goes further because you help reduce our
administrative, postage and paper costs.  More of your offering can go directly to
our Capuchin Mission and Ministry.  Also, because we can count on your
contribution each month, we can more effectively budget our limited resources.
To you, Capuchin Companions makes giving easier and more convenient, with no
more checks to write, no more envelopes to mail.

Is this a safe method of making donations?
The automatic transfer of funds is safer than mailing cash or checks.  In fact, one of
the largest users of this method of funds transfer is the U.S. Social Security
Administration.

What record will I have of my monthly donations?
Your monthly checking account statement will show the date and amount of your
donation to the Capuchin friars.  Id addition, we will send you a year end statement
listing your contributions for the year.

What if I change my mind?
Just pick up the telephone and call us if you want to change the amount of your
gift, stop the automatic donations transfer, or if you move, change banks or get a
new credit card.  We will need this information 3 business days in advance of a
schedule donations transfer date.
