The following factors are considered in determining whether and how much financial support will be given to any agency:

  • Involvement of St. Michael's parishioners.
  • Recommendation by parishioners, clergy and diocese.
  • Effectiveness and efficiency of the agency.  Priority will be given to agencies demonstrating the ability to meaningfully impact the lives of the less fortunate.  Priority will also be given to agencies that channel the greatest amount of funds into programs.
  • Charitable programs that service the Barrington area.
