Mason-McDuffie Mortgage Corporation is setting up this fund for the San Francisco Bay Area nuns that are being evicted from the residence in which they feed the homeless due to a $2K rent increase.

We feel in our hearts that this is absolutely unjust and we want to help the nuns out as best we can. As a company, we want to put up 5% of their rent increase for the next 12 months, along with our Chariman Herbert Tasker, CEO Marilyn Richardson, and CIO Jason Frazier who have personally volunteered to do the same. At this rate, we only need 16 more people to entirely cover the cost of their rent increase for the next year.

However, any little bit counts. Please share this story with as many as you can to spread the word and donate what you can, and as soon as you can. They are facing eviction effective immdeidately and we don't want to see them turned away from their kitchen where hundreds of homeless rely on their meals.

After all these women have done for the community, it is time we give back to them.

Wow! We are blown away by the generous $4,500 donation made today. This gets the Sisters that much closer to where they need to be. We cannot thank you enough!

Thank you to all of our gracious donors that have given back to the Sisters thus far. They are beyond appreciative of every last one of your donations. This would not have been possible without YOU!

We are almost at our goal and ask that you please continue to spread awareness by sharing this incredible story of tireless devotion. They are looking toward a better quality of food and comfort for the homeless citizens they feed.

If you can, please help by donating to https://www.gofundme.com/sfnuns.

We are truly humbled by all of your tremendous faith in the cause.
The Sisters hard at work in the kitchen.

Thank you all so much for believing in the Sisters as much as they believe in the community.

We are now over halfway to our goal!

Let's continue to share their story and circulate this page in order to get them into a better space to serve the homeless of SF.

They need the help... Let's be there for them. gofundme.com/sfnuns

Incredible... Motivational speaker Tony Robbins has joined us in our effort to help these ladies and offered them a $25,000 donation! Thank you, Tony, for standing alongside us in this effort.

However, these women still need much more help. They are tirelessly working to feed 300-500 homeless citizens three times a week and have no income.

If you can or are in a position to, please donate to the cause. They are outstanding Sisters and are doing great work for the community.

Thank you to all of you for keeping this going. We could not have done it without you!

For the last few days I have been working with the attorney for Sister Mary Valerie, Sister Mary Benedicte and Sister Mary of the Angels, as well as with Mason McDuffie to fundraise for the immediate crisis of their possible eviction. Having seen their humble operation, as well as the sisters' passion, dedication and love, I know they can do more to serve the homeless and the hungry, if they have the resources. Even though the crisis has been averted, I ask that you consider giving to enable them to maximize the good work that they do. Thank you, all. (And a special thanks to Mason McDuffie for this fundraising portal!)

Thank you so much to ALL who have helped. You've been truly wonderful. Please continue to spread the word so we can help the Sister relocate!
