Quincy Cursillo relies on the generosity of the Quincy Cursillo Community to help finance needed repairs, pay for updates to the Franciscan Retreat Center and generally enhance the Cursillo experience for the candidates. We partner with Quincy University to help meet the challenge of providing the best possible atmosphere for future candidates and teams.
The fees collected from the team and candidates for each weekend goes toward room/board, meals and miscellaneous supplies. Any other expenses that Quincy Cursillo incurs has to be paid for through donations.
There are several sources by which we collect donations – by the offerings collected at the Buddy Mass prior to the weekend and Masses that occur during the weekend itself. In addition, some teams will take up collections during the team meetings to help offset the expense of the weekends.
If you are not able to attend the Cursillo activities and miss the opportunity to contribute, you can also donate by sending payment to:
P.O. Box 3153
Quincy, IL 62305-3153.
Donations are also accepted online through PayPal. It is not necessary to register with PayPal to donate. Just locate and click on the “continue” button and you will be given the option to pay directly with a credit card.
A 501c3 was established for Quincy Cursillo in 2010, which means that all of your contributions are tax-deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
We are grateful for the support received from you, the Quincy Cursillo Community, as you continue to live out the words printed on the back of your Cursillo cross: “Christ is Counting on You!”
