Minores Fund


 
The Franciscan Sisters of Peace have created a small fund called the Minores Fund, to which their members may apply. Grants may be requested for one of two purposes:
 
1. to fund individual sisters for an experience of living and learning in a cultural setting other than their own
 
2. to financially assist the poor in initiating or continuing programs which meet basic needs such as food, medical care or education.
 
 
Usually these requests for funds would apply to ministries in which one of our sisters is presently involved. Former                                                                                                                                    association with a particular ministry would also be
                                                                                                                eligible for funding.
 
Grant applications are reviewed by the Minores Fund Committee and then forwarded to the General Council for approval. Grant amounts range from $200.00 to $3,000.00.
