Prison presents many challenges to the Catholic faithful, from Christian and Muslim apologists who try to lure them from the faith, to pornography that tempts them from the path of virtue, to despair borne of the belief that they are forgotten. But many prisoners also encounter Christ in a deeper way in prison.

Recently, the Augustine Institute has noticed an uptick in the number of requests we receive from prisoners and prison chaplains seeking donations of our products. We try to accommodate each request, but we also need to cover our costs. Would you join with us as we launch our Kolbe Fund for Prisoners, named for Saint Maximilian Kolbe? Any donations to this fund will help us offset the costs of inventory, shipping, and handling associated with responding to prisoners or prison chaplains.

Thank you for your generosity.

If you prefer to donate by check, please make it out to Augustine Institute, and write Kolbe Fund in the memo. Send your check to:
