Annual Fund Drive

Annual Fund Drive


The National Centre for Padre Pio is launching our Annual Fund Drive, and we are asking for your support of our salvific mission.

With an influx in the number of visitors, we have had to bring on additional staff, and we have increased the number of new annual events and programs. As a result, we depend on the donations raised during our Annual Fund Drive to support our growing efforts.

We’ve set an ambitious goal of $200,000 for this year’s Annual Fund Drive. And we would be grateful if you could help us get there before the campaign ends on August 15, 2023.

If you wonder whether your gift today is really that important, let us assure you that it is. We thank God every day for your generosity and commitment.

YOU make it possible for the National Centre for Padre Pio to welcome thousands of visitors and pilgrims every year. We are a large pilgrimage destination, and it’s you who helps us pay our ongoing operating costs.

YOU enable the Centre to house the most extensive collection of Padre Pio relics and artifacts outside of Italy. And it is YOU who helps us keep open the doors of Our Lady of Grace Chapel—a historically accurate Franciscan site based on Padre Pio’s own church.

As you know, most of our funding comes from faithful supporters like you, as well as from proceeds from our gift shop and from free-will offerings from visitors seeking peace, tranquility, and healing at the home of Padre Pio in the USA.

Once again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of our mission to spread the message of the life, wounds, words, and works of Padre Pio.
