Friends of IVC

We are very blessed here at IVC! Why? There are many reasons—we have a deeply dedicated staff and board, but among the greatest gifts we have are our friends. Since IVC started in 1995, hundreds of individuals have given of their time, talent and treasure to grow IVC and support our mission of service to people who are materially poor.

IVC is financially and spiritually supported by generous Individuals, Foundations, Jesuit Provinces, Jesuit Communities and Community Service Organizations.

  • A huge THANK YOU to all the Jesuits, religious, and lay men and women who serve our volunteers as Spiritual Reflectors.
  • THANKS to the community leaders who serve as regional council members.
  • THANK You to our donors.
