Mission Advancement at Benet Hill

A place of hope and hospitality for the world.

     Please consider making a gift to Benet Hill Monastery on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 8th, an online giving opportunity benefiting hundreds of Colorado nonprofits! 

Your gift will help the Sisters of Benet Hill Monastery offer hope and hospitality to those seeking meaning in their life, both locally and globally. This year, more than ever, the work of our hands to offer prayer and spiritual education is critically needed. 

With your help, the sisters hope to raise $20,000 that day, and your personally meaningful gift will be a blessing to us. 

Here are some additional important considerations:*Thanks to Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated.

You can schedule your donation now to be processed on December 8th when you check the box to make a future donation!  

With gratitude,

The Sisters of Benet Hill Monastery
