About Our Grants


Understanding the Vision Behind Our Grants

The Church is changing—and so is the way we approach our reinvestment in Catholic programs. OSV Institute seeks to serve the Church by supporting and encouraging innovative and effective Church-related programs and activities that help Catholics of diverse ethnicities, ages and stages of life come closer to Christ. Going forward, each of our grant cycles will focus on a different area of strategic support for religiously unaffiliated Millennials, Hispanics and parents of Catholic dependents.

Investing in the Church


Re-Captivating Millennials

We support initiatives that re-engage young adults to reverse religious apathy and bring Millennials closer to Christ and His Church.


Hispanic Experience

With exponential growth in the Church over the last several decades, Hispanics bring rich traditions into the Catholic Church in America.


Supporting Parents

As the first teachers of children, Catholic parents require resources and strength to speak the truth to our next generation.
