Support the Mission

You will be directed to — the secure facilitator of charitable contributions to Ignatius House.

Ignatius House relies upon the generosity of benefactors and donors, like you.

Ignatius House welcomes people of any faith for a new encounter with God. Focused charitable programs support one another through transitions from homelessness, addiction, life’s major milestones and big questions.

A gift of any amount can:

  • help those in transitional housing find hope through the Ignatian Spirituality Project at Ignatius House.
  • give focus to low-income teens who are discerning their futures.
  • underwrite free programs that promote Christian spirituality and interfaith dialogue.
  • maintain the serenity of 20 forested acres for all to enjoy.
  • foster an environment that allows the full mission of Ignatius House to flourish.

Although Catholic, Ignatius House receives no sustaining funds from the Vatican, Society of Jesus (“Jesuits”) or the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Your gifts keep fees at Ignatius House as low as possible and underwrite experiences for anyone who cannot afford to pay.
