A new way to donate: Text2Give

Text2Give is an easy way to make a donation to the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth using just your smartphone! A simple one-time set-up process will register your smartphone with the payment account (checking, savings, debit or credit card) from which you would like funds to be withdrawn. Once completed, add our Text2Give phone number to your contacts and you can make a donation at any time by simply sending a text!

Step One: Register Your Smartphone

You can register your smartphone via text or using our online form.

To register via your phone, text the word REGISTER to (847) 994-4483, and you will receive responses that will guide you through the process. A confirmation text with an email link will be sent to you; click on the link to begin the process of entering your contact and billing information. Once completed, follow the instructions to review, then submit. A complete registration message will display, and you will also receive a confirmation text message.
