Charity Alive Fund

We receive many requests for financial assistance. In an effort to determine need and set priorities, a procedure has been established to review requests. Under the procedure, organizations are required to submit an application for funding. Completed applications are reviewed by the donation committee and their recommendations are forwarded to the Congregational Leadership Team for review.

Donation monies are distributed from the Charity Alive Fund – a fund that promotes the mission of the Sisters of Charity – Halifax.

The Sisters of Charity – Halifax give joyful witness to love, stand on the side of the poor, and address unjust structures in a world wounded by violence and stripped of hope. The congregation especially encourages projects involving women and children.

Funds are granted on a one-year basis. Approval of a donation in a given year does not assume approval in subsequent years. Groups receiving funds must be accountable for money received from the congregation. Organizations are asked to submit a report or letter explaining how the funds were used within the year of receiving the donation.
