The Papal Foundation
Supporting Needs Identified by Pope Francis Around the Globe
The Papal Foundation is dedicated to addressing the philanthropic priorities of Pope Francis in developing nations all over the world, which include building churches, hospitals, and schools and providing financial support that enables lay and religious leaders to study in Rome. At BTC, we help tell these stories throughout the U.S. with the goals of engaging existing donors, known as Stewards of St. Peter, and attracting new individuals to the Foundation’s mission of supporting those most in need. BTC designed and manages the foundation’s new website, executes a weekly email program, creates donor collateral, and captures earned media opportunities around the foundation’s annual grant and scholarship programs.
Since its inception in 1998 the Papal Foundation and its Stewards of Saint Peter have allocated nearly $200 million in grants and scholarships around the world to more than 2000 projects selected by the Holy Father.
