Legacy Giving


Ways you can support the Abbey's spiritual mission

Mount Angel Abbey operates the largest seminary in the western United States. We conduct retreats for thousands of Christians each year. Our library has the largest theological collection in the Northwest. These ministries are supported by the work and prayers of our 50-member Benedictine community. The monks of Mount Angel serve millions of Catholics and other Christians, but we need your support to fulfill our mission and vision.

By including the Abbey Foundation of Oregon (Tax ID 04-3703021) in your estate plan, you may be able to establish a named fund that provides ongoing support for the monastery, library and guest house, as well as the education of seminarians for generations to come.
