The Loyola Foundation is inviting applications to assist overseas Catholic mission projects, primarily in less developed countries.
Requests must be capital in nature (i.e. construction, equipment, vehicles).
- Generally, the Loyola Foundation accepts requests up to $20,000.
- Is your project part of an overseas Catholic mission activity?
- Is it a capital project (construction, equipment or a vehicle)?
- Can your project be finished for $20,000 (or less)?
- Can you obtain written approval for your project from the local Diocesan ordinary?
- For a construction or renovation project, a blueprint and professional cost estimate, prepared by a local contractor, as well as pro forma invoices for required materials and photographs of the project in its current state, as applicable.
- For the purchase of equipment or a vehicle, a pro forma statement quoting the cost of the vehicle or equipment, prepared by a local dealership.
- The written approval of the local diocesan ordinary, with his raised imprint seal affixed. This letter must specify that the ordinary has reviewed and approved the specific project.
The Foundation does not accept requests for operating expenses, scholarships, tuition, endowment funds, travel expenses or meeting costs. The Foundation does not make multi-year grant or grants for emergency needs, minor seminaries, or individuals. The Loyola Foundation generally does not consider requests for projects located in the United States.
