The Seminary’s endowment funds provide monetary support to ensure the quality of priestly formation at the Seminary. There are twelve separate funds, including:
- The Kenrick-Glennon Seminary Endowment which provides unrestricted monetary support for annual operations.
- The Peter Richard Kenrick Chair of Pastoral Theology Endowment which supports the annual Peter Richard Kenrick Lecture, an educational opportunity established by the Class of 1944 to provide lasting support to their beloved seminary and to enhance pastoral formation for years to come.
- The Justin Cardinal Rigali Chair of Sacred Liturgy Endowment which supports in the training and formation of seminarians so that, once ordained, they may promote the dignity, beauty and sound discipline of the Sacred Liturgy.
- The Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke Chair of Canon Law Endowment which supports the study, training and formation of seminarians so that, once ordained, they may be prepared in their knowledge of Catholic Truth and Upholding Catholic Rights.
- The Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan Chair of Church History Endowment which supports the study of Church History so our future priests are prepared in their knowledge of the history and tradition of the Universal Church.
- The Holy Family Fund provides unrestricted monetary support for annual operations at a higher distribution rate than the general seminary endowments (between 5% and 10% of the average market value of the fund to be distributed annually).
