This is one of the simplest ways to help Saint Kateri's Shrine. We believe the best way for the Shrine to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. This is an easy and efficient way of contributing to the great work we do at Saint Kateri National Shrine and Historic Site. We need volunteers for Mass (greeters, lectors, ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, musicians/singers, etc.), maintaining the gardens and trails, assisting the gift shop manager, stuffing envelopes, and with large events. Get in touch with any questions about how you can volunteer your time today.

What is a matching gift?

Many companies have corporate philanthropy programs that will match donations made to charitable organizations by their employees, and sometimes their spouses and/or retirees. Most companies will match the donation at a 1:1 ratio, but there are others who will double, triple or even quadruple the gift.  Your gift of $25 could become $50, $75 or even $100 with a matching gift from your employer!

How do I apply for a matching gift?

First you must find out if your employer has a matching gift program. You can do so by asking the Human Resources Department, going to your company’s website, or by visiting If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift to the address below. We will do the rest!
