Our Mission

SC Ministry Foundation is a public grant-making organization that promotes the mission and ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati.

Urged by the love of Christ, and in the Spirit of our founder, Elizabeth Ann Seton,
we Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati strive to live Gospel values.

We choose to act justly, to build loving relationships,
to share our resources with those in need, and to care for all creation.

Our Purpose

Through grant making, SC Ministry Foundation:

  • Provides financial support to organizations identified with the Sisters of Charity in need of support for viability and growth
  • Furthers social justice by addressing the root causes of poverty, racism and oppression
  • Supports services and programs that will positively impact persons living in poverty and those underserved
  • Promotes collaborative initiatives for the building up of healthy communities

Since its formation in 1996, the foundation has awarded grants in support of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati congregation, its sponsored ministries, and other nonprofit organizations where Sisters are actively involved. In addition, the foundation makes grants to other unrelated nonprofits working to address issues of concern to the Sisters of Charity.
