How our Funds help communities

Types of Giving Funds

The Father Vincent Capodanno Vietnam Chapel Fund

This fund supports the building of a memorial chapel in Que Chua, Vietnam in honor of US Navy Chaplain, Lt. Vincent Capodanno, who sacrificed his life giving last rites to wounded Marines in 1967. The village church was destroyed in that battle and there has been no worship site available since.

The Christine Kaczmar-Russo Memorial Fund

Contributions to this Memorial Fund help continue Christine Kaczmar-Russo’s legacy of supporting international students attending St. Joseph’s University. This was her passion as she traveled extensively helping to create international programs and connections for the University.

The Providence Center Program Fund

Since 1993, the Providence Center of Philadelphia has served the Fairhill and West Kensington communities of North Philadelphia, offering adult education, youth empowerment, and community building services.  The organization also has an exceptional history serving the surrounding Latino population with their English language and leadership programs. The Providence Center Charitable Fund supports all programs and opportunities provided by the organization to ensure its long-term success and availability to the community.
