The Santa Croce Foundation is a Canadian registered charity (registration number 8660 4502RR0001) that seeks to support financially the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross. We help the University by raising much needed resources to advance its mission.We do this mainly by providing scholarships to seminarians and priests studying at the University and by funding specific programs in the different faculties through Joint Ventures.
The Italian name of the university is Pontificia UniversitÓ della Santa Croce. http://www.pusc.it/eng/ . This is why we called our foundation the Santa Croce Foundation.
