As a new monastery, with an established group of nuns, we need to build for our needs quickly.  We need cells, workspaces, barn, and most importantly, a Church that will be dedicated to St. Joseph the Hesychast.  We are asking for your help and support in this large endeavor.  Our goal is to continue building debt-free and pay off the existing property mortgage quickly.

We have 2 building funds you can choose to allocate your donation to, or if not specified, to help support our living expenses. Click on the buttons to learn more about each project.

We ask for your prayers and your continued support. All donations are federally tax-deductible and can be made through a variety of methods such as  Tithely (no sign up required and linked below), check, or ACH bank transaction. 

We no longer are doing business with PayPal. offers lower fees for us, and includes the option to have you "cover the fees" in your donation to help us out.  It is also a platform built only for church donations, so it is designed for exclusively for giving, which gives you more options for everything including payment types and recurring donation options that PayPal doesn't offer.  It is also safe and secure!

If you have a large donation you wish to give, please mail a check written out to the "Iveron Mother of God Monastery" and write in the memo line where you would like your finds allocated to or you can contact us for more options.

Thank you and may God bless your generosity!
