The Stewardship Foundation supports charities that are aligned with The Stewardship Foundation’s credo, otherwise expressed as “the reason we exist.” We understand that values are always the driving force in a nonprofit; that the social mission trumps profit, and the bottom line is measured on the good that we do in the world.
When a nonprofit or a charity seeks funding and their niche mission aligns with ours, we put our experience to work with their estate planners, advisors, accountants, and attorneys to help them achieve their charitable goals. One such nonprofit is Saint Paul’s Outreach (SPO).
The mission of St. Paul’s Outreach is critical! They say it best: “college campuses are battlegrounds for the minds and souls of young people, and that many are leaving the Church.”
Unfortunately, at the most, about 10% of students attend Sunday Mass, and most admit they feel isolated from God. SPO’s mission is to reach out to students and young adults on campus with the message that they can transform their lives through a deep relationship with Christ and with His people.
The word “transform” is part of the credo. “God has called us to be a transformational people who live deep relationship—with him and with one another. Our charism values support our mission, characterizing the transformative way of life that God has given us and called us to share.
These “charism values” are:
- Community is at the heart of SPO, its source and fruit of our mission.
- We invite people to a personal encounter with the living Christ.
- We respect the dignity of all human life and uphold a healthy culture of masculinity and femininity.
- We strive to be prayerful communally and individually.
- We share Christ’s compassion and message with others.
- We become committed missionary disciples for life.
We at the Stewardship Foundation support and rejoice in the work that the St. Paul’s Outreach does on our local campus here in Columbus, Ohio, and several other states in the U.S. To learn more about this vital non-profit visit the SPO website or call our office.
