Stories of Hope
St. Jude League Community Development is a nonprofit funding (grant making, awarding) organization that directly supports community development and social justice programs operated by the Claretian Missionaries in the United States and Canada. The programs are primarily in high-poverty, urban communities and address critical issues including education, health and food insecurity, and caring for migrants and refugees.
What Makes Us Unique
- St. Jude League Community Development is a non-profit organization that provides support to community development and human services programs operated by the Claretian Missionaries primarily in the United States and Canada.
- Donors choose the specific programs that they want to support. St. Jude League Community Development directly invests in a variety of individual programs and issues across the United States and Canada. Inspired by donors who want to support specific programs in their communities, we direct donations exclusively to the programs and issues selected.
- 100% of each donation is sent directly to the programs we support. St. Jude League Community Development does not keep a percentage of donations to cover our administrative costs.
St. Jude League Community Development supports a vast network of programs in locations found primarily in the United States and Canada. We also assist Claretian Missionaries’ humanitarian efforts to address international crises.
