Raising funds for overseas missions


A key focus of the Mission Office is to support the mission projects of the SVD around the world. To this end, the Mission Secretary for the Province and a small but dedicated staff, work hard to raise and distribute funds for mission activities in overseas countries. An important part of raising funds is in sharing the stories of how people’s lives are being transformed by these projects and by the love of God as present in and through the SVD missionaries.By seeing the faces and hearing the stories of the people being served by these mission projects, our generous donors, who we think of as our co-missionaries, can truly see the difference they are making. The main vehicle for this sharing of Mission stories is our quarterly publication Society Matters. This is a free magazine which is mailed directly to our friends, donors and supporters.
