Main/ Giving
Saint Nicholas Monastery is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donations are tax-deductible as permitted by IRS regulations.


You may make a one-time donation, or if you are able, would you consider making an ongoing monthly commitment to assist the Monastery?


You may also commemorate someone's important occasion, such as a wedding, baptism, birthday, or name-day. Gifts may also be made in memory of the reposed. We will send acknowledgment of your contribution to you and to the person you specify to receive the notice. If you would like us to notify someone of your gift, please provide us with their name and address.


Other types of donations, such as tangible property, automobiles, boats, and similar items, are also welcome. We have a network of dedicated volunteers in many businesses who will assist us in selling these items, that the proceeds may go to the Monastery.


Would you like to make a gift that continues to provide you with income? One of the pilgrims who worships at our Monastery, Mike Strickland, is a financial specialist who has offered to donate his time and knowledge to anyone who would like to assist Saint Nicholas Monastery through their charitable planning. At the same time, he will help you to achieve your financial goals, to save on taxes in the process, and to provide gifts to the Monastery without disinheriting your family. 

You may explore Mike’s website and watch some videos from his satisfied clients.  Click on the link below:

You may either contact him directly at 239-281-8657 or you can email him at and indicate you are wanting to assist the Monastery, or you may contact the monastery and we will have him contact you.
