Fundraising & How You Can Help

Fundraising and How you can help

As you can imagine, funds are incredibly important in our work as it is the life-blood for our many activities. Your support allows us to fulfil our Mission, to Preach the Gospel, spread the Word of God, preach the word of St. Martin, educate our student Priests and offer support to other Charities.

If you would like to help us with our charity fundraising just read through below and click the links for more information.

Donate

Many supporters of St Martin Apostolate have given generously over the years and now, more than ever, we value all of your support. Thank You!

If you would like to make a donation you can do so either as a once off or as a regular giver.  Regular donations are extremely important to our charity and help make a really big difference to our activities in helping others. A regular gift allows us to plan for the future.

Also, did you know that you can make your donation go further? If your combined support amounts to €250 or more in any one year, we can claim tax relief on it. We could qualify to receive up to 45% of your total support – on top of every penny you have generously donated – all at no extra cost to you. Find out more information on Tax Efficient giving here.

Support our Student Priests

In recent years the Dominican Order has been blessed with vocations but all these students have to be educated and supported in every way during their years of study.

It costs a lot each day to support and educate a student priest and we would be most grateful if you would consider becoming a regular contributor to our Association of Student Priests. If you would like to donate to support a student priest, you can do so securely by clicking the button below.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a regular contributor, please call us on 01 874 5465 or 00353 1 8745465 from outside Ireland.

Leaving a Legacy

As a registered charity, Saint Martin Apostolate relies—now, more than ever—on the support of individuals. With a gift in your will, you will help to safeguard the Apostolate and inspire future generations.

A gift in your will enables the Apostolate to carry out significant works to help others which might otherwise be out of reach. Many of our Mission accomplishments have been made possible by generosity of people like you.

Once you have made provision for your family and loved ones, we ask that you might consider a gift to the Saint Martin Apostolate. A gift in your will—no matter how small or large—will make a real difference to the Apostolate.
