We pray for you and with you, Holy Father


Go forth and reach out to all people at the margins of society! Go there and be the Church, with the strength of the Holy Spirit.


Celebrating 25 Years of Giving

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.
