While we have the permission and prayers of Bishop Sis for our work, we are separate from the Diocese and solely responsible for funding our projects. Financial support is crucial to the success of the Heart of JMJ Foundation and our ability to bring meaningful conferences to our Diocese. The cost of the San Angelo Catholic Women's Conference, "Outrageous Love - How Does God See You?", is estimated to be $20,000. We must pay for the rental of the facility, speakers' fees, stipends and travel expenses, audio & visual costs, advertising or publicity, printing costs, lunches, and many other expenses. We are committed to working diligently to keep our costs to a minimum. We are seeking donations from our supporters to help defer expenses. There are many ways to assist the foundation. If interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We received our non-profit organization status in 2017. A non-profit organization is a business granted tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Donations made to a nonprofit organization are typically tax deductible to individuals or businesses that make them.
