Would-be Missionaries
Need your Help!


Saint Nicholas

As we all know, those who dedicate themselves to the service of the Gospel – youth ministers, DREs, Catholic school teachers – earn wages that are paltry by the world’s standards. That is why we established the St. Nicholas Fund to provide help to our students who experience financial difficulties such as…

  • burdensome medical bills
  • job transitions, or
  • catastrophic auto repairs.

In this Year of Mercy, we will broaden the scope of this Fund to allow scholarships to be awarded for simple financial need.

Will you help a missionary graduate?

Thank you for your generous donation. It will be greatly appreciated by those who receive it, and will advance the Gospel in concrete ways.

Thank you gifts

We are very grateful for our donors, and like to offer thank you gifts that help our donors advance our mission.

  • Donors of $25 or more will receive a beautiful, 16-month, 10th Anniversary wall calendar (while supplies last).
  • Donors of $1,000 or more will receive the Lectio: Peter DVD set as a token of our gratitude.

Both the calendar and Lectio make great gifts – giving them is an easy way to participate in the New Evangelization!

If you wish to decline your gift, so that your donation goes completely to the mission of the Augustine Institute, please note that in the comments box (e.g., “no gift please”).


Donations of $10/month or more (or $100/yr or more) qualify the donor for Membership in the Augustine Institute. To find out more about member benefits, click here.
