Welcome to FC!

Our Church in the Philippines constantly needs to send Priests for further studies in the best Catholic Universities in Rome. They reside and undergo holistic formation at the Pontificio Collegio Filippino (Pontifical Filipino College) — close to the Holy Father physically, spiritually and doctrinally.

When they return home after two to four years, depending on their specialization, they will take charge of seminaries and other ministries in their Dioceses.

Join us in this mission of training trainors for the Philippine Church…

Volunteer hours for the Church back home in the Philippines, but without leaving your place! You may easily do this wherever you live and work — or retire, for that matter — through a monthly recurring donation of at least an hour of your salary.

Please join us in responding to Cardinal Tagle’s call in two special ways:

  1. Raise scholarship funds to help your diocese back home in the Philippines. This is to cover annual board and lodging ($9,000), health insurance ($200), residence permit ($200), bus pass ($300), tuition fees ($5,000), books and pocket money — amounts that are really low compared with American standards.
  2. Support Collegio’s operations, renovations and programs.

Additional Ways to Help:

  • Amazon shoppers: log on to Smile.amazon.com, and indicate “Friends of the Collegio” as charitable organization of your choice. (AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to us 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products.)
  • Facebook Fundraising: create a normal post, then “Support Nonprofit” button below, and look for “Friends of the Collegio” as your non-profit. (Visit our Facebook Page.)
  • Ask friends to donate to Friends of the Collegio, in lieu of gifts: on your birthday, anniversary, Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year, Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Graduation, some other special occasion, or when you simply meet for dinner.
  • Civic or religious organizations may wish to sponsor a Priest from their home diocese.
  • Print and distribute informative flyers on supporting FC and the Collegio‘s renovations focusing on the Filipiniana Library.
  • Order and distribute FC souvenir items for friends.
