Become a Partner in FAN

If you support the work we are doing, please consider becoming a “Partner in FAN.”

Welcome. We hope you’ll decide to be a Partner in FAN (Franciscan Action Network). If you’ve gotten this far, you’ve already checked out our homepage and chances are you’ve seen some of the work we do on Facebook and Twitter. Or maybe you’ve attended one of our events or heard about us through one of the Franciscan parishes or communities. Now we would like to extend an invitation to take the next step to become a Partner in FAN.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Partner in FAN?
Partners in FAN participate through financial contribution, prayer, and when possible, activism (such as participation in a Franciscan Solidarity Table, issue advocacy with phone calls, petitions and letter writing, and attending prayer vigils, meetings, films, marches and rallies).

Regardless of your position in life or your resources, we would like you as a Partner and value all levels of involvement and activism. What ever you are able to do, your presence will make a valuable contribution to sustaining the social and religious traditions of St. Francis and St. Clare and furthering the work of the church and the vision of Pope Francis. We have tried to offer a program that will meet your time and financial ability. There are several ways to Partner with us.

My Community is an Institutional Member. How does this affect me?
We would like to make it clear, if you belong to a community which is an affiliated Institutional Member of FAN, you are automatically a member. This further commitment is aimed at individuals who would like to step up to the next level of activism. We have strived to make it attainable for all those dedicated to the continued work in the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare.

How does it work?
We offer our Partners the opportunity to fully engage in the fellowship of the Franciscan Community by being the first to know of events, activities and programs locally and nationally. As a Partner in FAN, you will be on our mailing list, receive our weekly newsletter reflections, notices of events, invitations to participate in local gatherings and as the program grows, membership in local Franciscan Solidarity Tables. You will also have special access to the FAN staff.
