Become a Steward of Saint Peter
Stewards Share their Faith through Generosity
The Papal Foundation is funded through the generosity of a select group of North American Catholic philanthropists who are committed to bringing the love of Christ to a world in need and being intimately connected with the work of the Church and the Holy Father.
One becomes a Papal Foundation Steward of Saint Peter for life with an initial gift of $1 million.
In order to help ensure their family’s commitment to and interaction with the Church, many Stewards bestow Family Legacy gifts on behalf of their children, grandchildren and parents.
Stewards continue their generosity throughout their lives with regular and/ or transformative financial gifts to the Foundation, including naming the Foundation as a beneficiary in their estate planning.
Annual pilgrimages to Rome with an opportunity to meet the Holy Father, as well as trips to meet grant recipients, often inspire Stewards to invite new generations to Foundation activities. Stewards often express that meeting the Holy Father in Rome together with other family members is a highlight of their involvement with the Foundation.
Being a Steward of Saint Peter often means planting a seed that will grow the faith in the lives of their children and their children’s children, as well as introducing this noble initiative to friends or other family members.
Join a Distinctive Community of Philanthropic Leaders
Stewardship through the Foundation allows donors to create relationships with fellow philanthropists who are profoundly committed to their faith.
Stewards of Saint Peter have given generously, and they and the Holy Father aspire to make the Foundation the most impactful charitable endeavor to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth.
