What programs and services receive Endowment funding?

As specified in the Stewards for Tomorrow campaign, the annual distribution of funds from the Endowment is allocated as follows:

  • Most of the annual distribution, 62.5 percent, provides tuition assistance grants for Catholic students at Catholic K-12 schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit.
  • Sacred Heart Major Seminary receives 6.25 percent of the annual distribution.
  • Another 6.25 percent of distributions provides educational opportunities for those engaged in youth and family ministry, as well as directors of religious education.
  • The final 25 percent of distributions are directed to the Archbishop's Stewardship Fund, a discretionary benevolent fund that enables the Detroit Archdiocese to support individuals and organizations that the Archbishop deems appropriate. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019, Archbishop Vigneron made a total of $839,741 in distributions to help support 18 different Catholic organizations, including St. Aloysius Church, Loyola High School, Senior Clergy Village, Guest House, PIME Missionaries and the Catholic Youth Organization.
