Our Purpose

Is to provide the financial support needed for the formation of Missionaries of the Sacred Heart priests and brothers. Many of our young seminarians come from countries where they live modestly and the cost of education is beyond the financial abilities of the family. The Sacred Heart Foundation works to increase our endowment fund each year so we can continue to give the financial support necessary.

The Scholarship Society

Since its origin in 1967, the Sacred Heart Foundation has granted over 1.78 million dollars in scholarships to over 2,000 seminarians. To provide these scholarships, the Sacred Heart Foundation depends on the generosity of our supporters. Particularly important has been the support of members of the Scholarship Society. Each member of the Scholarship Society has accumulated $15,000.00 or more in donations to the Sacred Heart Foundation. In appreciation for their generosity members of the scholarship society are given a named scholarship, which entails that each year a seminarian will receive a $1,000 scholarship in their name.
