Teresa Charities provides support to the elderly poor. This support comes from you, our generous donors and friends. In foreign countries, our job is to coordinate the distribution of support in the most efficient and trustworthy way possible.

In the U.S., our role is to coordinate the collection of funds, again as efficiently as possible.



We utilize several methods to raise funds:

  • We have musical evenings that provide entertainment, but also allow us to present the Teresa Charities program to donors
  • We utilize radio advertising, air time that is often graciously donated to us.
  • We publish literature to tell our story and to gain contributions.
  • We maintain this web site, which allows us to tell the story of the need we seek to serve, but also to allow us to report back to you about our successes.
