1) Objective

Established in 1957 by Albert G. McCarthy, Jr. and his family, the Loyola Foundation supports overseas Catholic mission activities in less developed countries across the globe. Since its inception the Foundation has awarded more than $45 million in small grants benefiting some 6,000 projects around the world. The Foundation preferably funds capital projects, such as building construction, the purchase of equipment or a vehicle (i.e. installation of solar power plants and water wells; construction of churches, seminaries, convents, meeting halls, schools, and health clinics; purchase of books, computers, medical equipment and vehicles).

Applications need to include: (1) 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; (2) 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; and (3) 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.

2) Eligibility

Eligible for grant funding are mission-based organisations affiliated with a local Diocesan (written approval for the project must be obtained from the local Diocesan ordinary).

3) Location

Grant funding is provided for projects in less developed countries across the globe.

4) Budget

Maximum grant funding is $20,000 and financial assistance is preferably given for capital projects (e.g. school and health infrastructure). In one year they approve app. 100 grants.

5) Application

Applications may be submitted either via the Foundation’s online portal or using the application form that can be downloaded from the Foundation’s website (Pdf and word format). The completed application and all supporting documents (such as professional cost estimates, pro forma invoices, etc.) should be sent by mail or email to the Foundation’s office. All applications must be written in English. There are two application deadlines throughout the year: March 31 for consideration at the summer Board meeting and September 30 for consideration at the winter Board meeting.
