How to help


In order to help the children of Cuernavaca who live in poverty, we rely entirely on God’s Providence. Contrary to popular belief, we receive no funds from the Vatican!  It is people like you who make our work possible – and we need you! Would you like to be one of our partners in this work? Your check written to  “Sisters of St. Francis—Cuernavaca” will help give these children the opportunity for a brighter future. All donations are tax-deductible. Donations may be sent to: Mission Advancement Office, 200 St. Francis Ave., Tiffin, OH 44883-3458.

To make a credit card donation, click on

and write “Cuernavaca” in the box that says “If you’d like to designate your gift.”

Unrestricted donations go where the need is greatest. If you wish to sponsor a specific child, please make a note of that when you make your donation. The actual cost of the services we offer each child is approximately $1,200 per year. You can become a sponsor for a minimum annual donation of $300. Sponsors receive a photo and periodic updates about the child they are assisting.

    Here in the U.S. it is so easy to take our access to free education for granted. I think we forget just how critical it is to our daily well being. As the granddaughter of poor immigrants, I grew up always hearing my parents say that education is the key not to wealth or power, but to growth, creativity and opportunities to help make the world a better place by developing and sharing our own, unique God-given gifts. Walking away from school and learning was never an option for us. And this is why I support Sr. Margaret and her work in Cuernavaca. I trust that one by one, each child we help attend school will absolutely make a difference . I am grateful for what my education has enabled me to see and do. And I am most grateful to be even just a small part of Sr. Margaret’s mission. There is so much that needs to be done– but that doesn’t overshadow the joy of seeing the progress of a sponsored child, month by month, as they work to nurture their gifts and God-given potential.

  2. I agree with that completely. I hate to address this in a post but I was not able to find an email address to contact anybody. I was in Cuernavaca over the summer and volunteered at the mission a few times. They are doing fantastic work with not a lot of resources. I am an English teacher in Dallas, TX and I have just started a Junior World Affairs Council at my school. One of the requirements of joining is participating in an International Service Project. I suggested to the kids that we support the Cuernavaca Children’s Mission in our project and they were all for it. If somebody could email me to discuss this further I would greatly appreciate it Thanks and keep up the good work.
