Your Opportunity to Support The Work of The Papal Foundation

Each year The Papal Foundation’s Grants Committee reviews more grant requests from the Vatican than the Foundation is able to fund from its corpus.

The Foundation is pleased to announce that it has a new “Special Designation Gift” program to accept donations for specific grant requests that it is not able to fully fund through the regular grants process.

Below are two projects that were not able to be fully-funded owing to limited resources, but for which the Grants Committee would like to draw special attention to the general public. The grant descriptions below are for your consideration and if you wish to support the grant request financially, monies collected by the Foundation will be utilized in support of the respective project.

A ‘Special Designation Gift’ may also be made in support of the Foundation’s Mission Fund, or to the Saint John Paul II Scholarship Fund.
