Ways to Give: One-Time / Monthly Recurring Gifts

In addition to retreat offerings, the Jesuit Retreat House, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, relies on donations of all sizes to continue its retreat ministry. Please prayerfully consider your support for our ministry through one or more of the following giving opportunities.

Annual Appeal Donation

Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal asks for your financial support for particular capital projects such as facilities renovations, air ventilation upgrades and technology infrastructure. Please join us and journey with us to help men and women discover and benefit from the gifts and graces offered by Ignatian spirituality and the Spiritual Exercises.


Cedar Wood Pole Swing Donation


A memorial donation to the Jesuit Retreat House is given in honor or in memory of the life and/or legacy of a family member, retreatant, loved one or friend. The dollars are used to support the ongoing retreat ministry based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.


Ministry Support Donation

Ministry Support

Support of the ministry donations are unrestricted funds that may be used by the retreat house to support all areas of its ongoing retreat ministry. This type of gift may also be given in honor or memory of a family member, loved one, retreatant or friend.


12-Step/Recovery Donation


This fund helps ensure the continuance of the retreat house's current retreat offering model that welcomes those who are unable to pay the actual cost of a retreat. Contributions to this designated fund, support all 12-Step/recovery/addiction programs held at or sponsored by JRH and people in recovery/addiction programs participating in other JRH programs.


Alphonsus Donation

St. Alphonsus Rodriguez, S.J. Endowment

The St. Alphonsus Rodriguez Endowment is intended to become the primary Endowment of the retreat house. All endowment gifts are permanently restricted. Income generated from the endowment's principal may be used only to support all retreats and/or programming offered by the Jesuit Retreat House.


Monthly Recurring Gift Option

Monthly Recurring Gift Option

Becoming a monthly donor will help continue JRH's mission to foster spiritual enrichment rooted in the Gospels, the Catholic tradition, and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Your support will help us sustain a rich variety of retreat experiences and provide an atmosphere of quiet, peace, and prayer.

Additional Ways to Give

Matching Gift - Please check if your employer offers a matching gift program which may increase and, in some cases, double the impact of your donation.

IRA/QCD Donations - If you are 70.5 or older, gifts up to $100,000 from your IRA may be directly transferred from an IRA to a qualified charity such as the Jesuit Retreat House, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Even though the SECURE Act raised the required minimum distribution (RMD) age to 72, the QCD age remains at 70.5, so QCDs can be used for charitable giving even before RMDs begin. Check first with your IRA administrator or tax advisor for more detailed information about Qualified Charity Distributions.

Appreciated Securities- To transfer stock ownership to the Jesuit Retreat House, the following information will help you and/or your financial advisor:

  • DTC # 0141 | Account # 3632-0118 | Account Name: Jesuit Retreat House
  • Transfers on behalf of JRH go to:

Planned or Deferred Gifts - These can provide you and your loved ones with important benefits now and in the future.

  • Will bequests
  • Gifts of retirement assets
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Gifts of real estate
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Deferred gift annuities
