Our Fund exists to help young Catholics from all over the world. Read more about us and what we do here
Our principal award helps those young Catholics who act individually to help others.
We also help young Catholics who act as a helper for an assisted pilgrim at Lourdes.
Looking for some ideas? You can read some stories from people we have already helped.
Every year the Fund supports young Catholics from all over the world who volunteer to do something wonderful and help those less fortunate than themselves. Whether this is on an individual project, or with others – or even if you are planning to travel to Lourdes or on the Jumbulance to help an assisted pilgrim - we would like to help you to achieve your aims.
Most of the volunteers we have helped tell us about the way that their service for others has changed their life for ever. It could change yours too!
