Review for The Labouré Society, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Laboure Society is a small-but-mighty group of dedicated Catholics seeking to unlock the door to vocations in the Church by a combination of personal training, team-based fund-raising, and evangelization. Where student debt is the obstacle to a young person's call to serve, Laboure provides a way to tackle the debt leading in most cases eventually to complete mitigation of that financial obstacle. I have been impressed as a donor and as a volunteer at how lean, but experienced, the staff is. Many former professionals are drawn to bring their talents there. I have also been impressed with the Board's oversight of the work, avoiding mission drift and problem solving the practical needs of all involved.

Review for The Labouré Society, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about Laboure through word of mouth,and I thought that it was too good to be true. But it is both good and true. It serves a very important role for building up vocations in the face of a financial hurdle that would otherwise seem insurmountable. It builds up teamwork among aspirants who have the same calling to serve God but very different skills, gifts and challenges. It also develops a fund-raising model that will serve the Church by delivering aspirants to their vocation who already know about the role that fundraising plays in active discipleship.

From my introduction as a general benefactor, I have moved into a volunteer role and attend the "boot camp" training for aspirants, which has been an even bigger blessing. I get to ee first-hand the journey that these people go on to reach their individual and shared goals as a class.

Laboure is an innovative non-profit that delivers what it promises.
