RETIREMENT FUND FOR RELIGIOUS
The National Religious Retirement Office coordinates the annual Retirement Fund for Religious (RFR) collection and distributes the proceeds to eligible religious communities. More than 32,000 elderly sisters, and religious order priests and brothers benefit. The RFR underwrites financial assistance, consultation, and education that help religious communities meet the immediate and ongoing needs of aging members. Roughly 94 percent of donations directly aid senior religious and their communities. The remainder is used for administration and promotion of the nationwide appeal.
