Awake is a volunteer driven ministry. Newly registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the IRS and a Charitable Organization with the State of Wisconsin, Awake can now accept financial contributions to help cover ongoing expenses and support new initiatives including:

  • A series of virtual gatherings with expert speakers on a variety of topics related to the twin crises of sexual abuse and leadership failures in the Catholic Church.
  • The Awake blog, which produces regular, quality content to help Catholics become better informed about these issues
  • Outreach to clergy; sharing our mission, ministry, and resources with parishes around the Archdiocese.

Donations of any amount, large or small, are greatly appreciated and will be used judiciously in furthering our work. Your contribution today will help provide materials for parish outreach, cover technology fees for our website and virtual gathering platform, and offer stipends to our Executive Director as well as experts involved in virtual presentations. In all these ways and more, financial support helps Awake keep the abuse crisis and the voices of the wounded front and center, so that progress can continue to be made towards transformation and healing in our Church.
