Become a Tau Society Member

Tau Society members make a five-year pledge of at least $1,000 or more per year. These unrestricted funds support the ongoing operations of the Casa, including new and continuing programs and ministries that provide opportunities for spiritual growth, healing, transformation and ways to serve others. Pledges are paid in increments throughout the year and are vital to sustaining the Casa’s commitment to always be a nurturing place where relationships come first and all are welcome. Social engagements are planned throughout the year for members to gather in fellowship.

If you have questions or would like to become a member of the Tau Society, call Michael Stephan at 480.306.4589 or Sue Force at 480.355.5631. You can also fill out the form below and someone will contact you.

Join the La Verna Legacy Society

At the Casa, endowment holds the key to future financial sustainability. As our community and our facilities grow, no one should ever have to be turned away for lack of resources. We are responding to the call of the future by working to increase the Franciscan Renewal Center Endowment to $50 million. The revenue it generates will sustain our programs and ministries long into the future, so the needs of all who come to this sacred place will always be served.

A gift to the Endowment is a wonderful way to leave a lasting imprint that you were here and your commitment mattered, it mattered greatly. To make the Casa part of your legacy, contact Michael Stephan at 480.306.4589 or for more information on legacy giving, visit:

Offering what we can to the special collections is a reminder that we, as Catholics, belong to a worldwide Church and how we can help others is a way to say thank you to God for the kindness we have been shown. 

Mission Sunday

Employer Matching Gifts

Does your employer match your charitable contributions? If so, you can double your impact at the Casa. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses to qualified 501 (c) 3 organizations. Before making your contribution, find out if your workplace will match it. If they do, kindly let us to know, as employer payments may arrive separately and without your name. We want to be sure to thank you!

Does your workplace participate in the United Way? If so, you can make a contribution to the Casa from each paycheck. Simply check “Restricted Contribution” or “Option C” on the United Way pledge form and write in “Franciscan Renewal Center” as the agency of your choice. Thank you!
