The Monastery of St. Gertrude has a rich history, a vibrant present, and an inspired future.

We are a Benedictine community which welcomes people of all faiths, richly connected through prayer. Our ministries, our community, and this sacred place, the Monastery of St. Gertrude, are made vibrant through the extensive network of people who generously support our mission with their time, talent and financial support.

While we are a canonical community of papal jurisdiction, living in the Diocese of Boise, we do not receive any financial support from the diocese or Church. We are a non-profit, 501c3 organization supported by sisters’ ministries both at home and on mission — and your donations. Your gifts will enable us to fulfill our mission, sustain our dynamic ministries, care for sisters, and preserve and steward our buildings and grounds.

Our donors are partners in ministry and are helping to secure the future of the Monastery. The charitable tax incentives enacted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020, have been extended to 2021. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Consult your tax professional for more information.
