Donate to the Clergy Support Foundation

Our priests dedicate their lives to serving our communities, offering spiritual guidance and comfort year after year. Now, as they enter their retirement, The Clergy Support Foundation is here to ensure they receive the care and support they deserve in their retirement.

Your tax-deductible contribution can provide for our retired priests’ daily living needs, health care and medical expenses, home comforts and essentials for living well.

Saying thank you to those who served

Our humble priests have selflessly cared for our faith community’s spiritual nourishment and wellbeing for all their lives. When their time comes to retire, many are without family to support them and assist with the everyday essentials for a comfortable retirement. The Clergy Support Foundation is here to ensure these dedicated servants of God are cared for in their retirement.

Through the generosity of donors like you, the Clergy Support Foundation provides essential services for retired priests, including:

  • Personalised care for our priests through Our Clergy Health and Wellbeing team, who provide care for our priests’ daily living needs.
  • Medical care and mental health support to ensure their health is well-maintained.
  • Transportation assistance so they can attend appointments and social events, and stay connected with the community.
  • Social activities: to help retired priests combat loneliness by staying active and engaged.

By supporting the Clergy Support Foundation, you’re ensuring our retired priests can enjoy a well-deserved and supported retirement filled with dignity and connection. Here’s how your tax-deductible donation can help:

  • Give peace of mind: Knowing their basic needs are met enables retired priests to focus on their wellbeing and spiritual lives.
  • Show gratitude: Your donation is a way to express your heartfelt thanks for the years of service our priests have dedicated to our communities.
  • Ensure their dignity: Your support helps retired priests maintain a dignified standard of living in their golden years.

Let’s show our love and support for those who have served us so faithfully.

At 80 years of age, knowing the Clergy Support Foundation is there puts my mind at ease. I know one day I’ll need much more care and support.

Fr Arthur Cook, retired priest.

Even in retirement, in sickness and in health, our priests continue to carry out God’s ministry without question, staying involved in parish life and doing our Father’s work for as long as they are able. Their vocation never ends, and neither does our shared responsibility to support them in any way we can.

As Catholics, we are called to ensure there is always someone to care for our retired priests and those in ill‑health, just as they will always love and care for us.

With your generous gift and prayers, our Clergy Support Foundation can ensure our priests will have personalised, compassionate care when needed. Thank you and God bless you for your kindness.
