Catholic Foundation of Northwest Pennsylvania
provides a permanent and secure funding stream to strengthen and grow the Church's mission and ministries in Northwest Pennsylvania.
Admiration Sparks Gifts to Endowments
Admiration for Monsignor James "Fr. Pete" Peterson and Bishop Lawrence Persico inspire gifts to the endowments bearing their names and supporting causes important to them.
From the Heart
Reverend Leo Gallina established an endowment in 2012 for his childhood parish, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux Church in Bradford, PA, to help fund the ongoing expenses of the church.
A Lasting Tribute
With a desire to honor a priest who had specially guided and inspired her, Ruthanne Beighley established an endowment in his name. She chose as beneficiaries the three parishes he served and the parish ministries he "fostered and loved very much."
