Your tax-deductible donation provides vital support for necessities, such as prescription medications and nursing care. It also helps religious communities develop long-range retirement strategies.
Please give during the annual collection at your local Catholic parish. For 2016, the national collection dates are December 10-11, although some (arch)dioceses choose to hold the collection on different dates. If you donate by check, please write RFR on the memo line. Or mail your donation to:Retirement Fund for Religious
At present, the Retirement Fund for Religious does not accept online donations, but you can make a secure, electronic contribution at the Diocese of Buffalo's Share in the Care site. All donations made through the Diocese of Buffalo are forwarded to the National Religious Retirement Office.
Your employer may have a Matching Gift Program for the RFR appeal. Be sure to ask for a matching gift form to send in with your donation. If your company is not already enrolled, ask how this program can be established in your workplace.
If you work for a company that participates in the United Way, ask your coordinator about designating the Retirement Fund for Religious to receive your donation.
