Through our common life and witness at St. Aidan’s we aspire to be a beacon of generosity not only to our local community, but to our Diocese and to the Episcopal Church everywhere. For generations, our commitments to local organizations beyond our chapel walls have been a vital part of our mission.
Reaching out to the New Bedford community is realized through donating a flexible percentage of earnings from St. Aidan's invested funds. Mindful of trying to be as effective and focused as possible, St. Aidan’s has prioritized supporting Grace Episcopal Church and the Salvation Army, especially in these challenging pandemic times. From time to time, these two organizations will ask for additional help in support of their programs and urgent priorities.
Look to the “News” section of this website for notification regarding time sensitive giving opportunities for Grace Episcopal Church, New Bedford and the Salvation Army of New Bedford. Thank you in advance for your generous responses!
