Partners Circle

About the Unrestricted Fund

Font size

Founded in 1991 by the late Joseph J. McAleer, Sr., the Partners Circle has been a lifeline to the Salesian Sisters as it provides unrestricted funds for urgent, and often unforeseen, needs of the Sisters and their mission.

Your annual contribution to this fund empowers the Sisters to continue their mission: to provide financial assistance and volunteer services to the Salesian Sisters and to the young people in their care for the advancement of education, vocations, and community life.

Over the years, Partners Circle provided funds for many needed projects such as:

  • Rebuilding the Salesian Sisters’ schools in Louisiana that were devastated by Hurricane Katrina
  • Tuition assistance to at-risk students in various schools operated by the Salesian Sisters
  • Providing aid to Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake
  • Supporting young ladies studying to be Salesian Sisters
  • Provided new technology classrooms for our students

We hope you will join this special group in empowering the Salesian Sisters to continue their mission -- the education and evangelization of today’s children!

There are eight levels of membership, starting at $550. You may sign up for the Partners Circle, online or download our Partners Circle form and send it to:
