When I see them in the white habits at prayer, or giving lectures, or playing guitars and banjos on the subway, I have a plausible image of a "contrast society" that is very much engaged with the world—an evangelistic witness which is joyful, intellectually serious, expansive, and charitable.

The vitality and intelligence of the Dominican Friars are one of the most inspiring and welcome influences in the Church and society today. They remind us again and again that the only way we can influence the future is not to forget the unforgettable St. Thomas.
— James V. Schall, S.J., Professor Emeritus of Government at Georgetown University

About the Dominican Friars Foundation

The mission of the Order of Preachers, also called the Dominican Order, is to share with others the truth about the God whom we contemplate in our hearts.

The Dominican Friars Foundation is the 501(c)(3) advancement arm of the Dominican Province of Saint Joseph. The Foundation unifies the various fundraising efforts that support the Province.

With the support of the Dominican Friars Foundation and donors like you, the Friars work for the salvation of souls and the glory of God in parishes, hospitals, college campuses, and a variety of new evangelization apostolates.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

 

The Saint Dominic Legacy Society recognizes donors who have bequeathed gifts to the Dominican Friars in their wills. Through this giving society, the Friars gratefully honor our faithful friends and benefactors who have aligned their own legacy with the 800-year tradition of the Order of Preachers. Your support helps ensure that the mission of preaching Jesus Christ is carried out faithfully by future generations of friars.
