Methods of Giving

The world is too small to limit ourselves to one point; I want to embrace it entirely and reach all its parts

-- St. Frances Cabrini, 'Travels'

The National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization deriving its income primarily through private donations and profits resulting from our annual Benefit Event.  The Shrine receives no funding from Chicago’s Archdiocese or any parish.  

Your support remains critical to sustaining our mission in preserving Mother Cabrini's legacy and in bringing the love of God to the world. You make the difference in allowing our mission to continue by keeping the Shrine efficient and vibrant in its welcome to all.  We are profoundly grateful for your generosity and pray for God's blessing for each of you and those dearest to you.
