Spring 2017 Gospel Fund Grantees

For justice to which we are all called,

and for charity which is a privilege for all of us to offer,

we join our prayers and financial resources

with these organizations and groups

as they work for a more just global community.

Twice a year the School Sisters of Notre Dame award grants to organizations working for justice. These groups benefit people, mostly women and children, caught in poverty, human rights abuses, or environmental devastation.
