#Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as a national day of giving when people support the non-profits they love with a gift. It’s a perfect way to show gratitude for the difference non-profits make every day throughout the year—and maybe cross some items off a wish list!

Your contribution on #GivingTuesday helps support the mission, life and work at Holy Wisdom Monastery. This year we have a wish list of things we just plain need—or that will take pressure off an already tight budget. Take a look at our wish list to see how you can help!

Please fill out the form below if you would like to support Holy Wisdom Monastery by using a PayPal account, or a debit or credit card if you don't have a PayPal account. After filling out the form and clicking on the button below, you will be taken to the PayPal site, where you can either log in to your PayPal account (on the right side of the screen) or click on the pay with a debit or credit card link to use a debit or credit card to complete the transaction.

If you have questions or would like to donate, but you would rather not donate online, contact Janet Neurauter at 608-836-1631, x124.

  • Benedictine Experiences

    Benedictine Experiences—Scholarships. The sisters are designing Benedictine Experiences at the monastery in 2018 in which single Christian women can come to meet the sisters and explore life at the monastery. The sisters offer these experiences at a discount of 30-50% off the cost of meals and room at the retreat and guest house. Scholarships help provide support so women can visit the monastery and get to know the sisters' community.

    Nearly 16,000 people visited the monastery in 2017. Scheduling these visits, which include bedrooms, meals and meeting rooms, consumes a lot of staff time. We are hoping to switch to a more automated system that allows guests to see availability online and schedule when they come. We have been transitioning to a Customer Relationship Management system over the last year and hope to add more reservation and email capabilities to this system.
