The Papal Foundation presented its first financial support to Pope (now Saint) John Paul II and the Holy See in April 1990.
Since then, the Foundation has provided over $111 million in grants and scholarships to build the Church, educate and prepare leaders, and care for the most vulnerable people, young and old, around the world.
Our commitment today remains the same as it was in the beginning days: To walk in union with the Holy Father and the Magisterium of the Church as we bring the love of Christ to a world in need.
October 7, 2015 – Following Pope Francis’ historic visit to the United States, Jim Coffey of The Papal Foundation reflected, “As Pope Francis said his goodbyes, he captured the spirit of our Foundation and its Stewards of Saint Peter with these words: ‘I ask all of you, especially the volunteers and benefactors, do not let your enthusiasm for Jesus, his Church, our families or the broader family of society run dry. May our days together bear fruit that will last, generosity and care for others that will endure! Just as we have received so much from God — gifts freely given us and not of our own making — so let us freely give to others in return.’”
