IHM Foundation Events


Established in early 2013, the Sisters of IHM Foundation strives to support the needs of retired IHM sisters.In addition to hosting special events that raise awareness and generate much needed financial support for the congregation, the members of the IHM Foundation encourage IHM supporters to make planned gifts to the congregation. The creation of the Foundation was set in motion after IHM friends, now Foundation board members, inquired about ways they could help the IHM sisters. The IHM Leadership Team members serve as the Foundation Corporation.
