Welcome to the San Lorenzo Foundation,
also known as the Friends of San Lorenzo
The San Lorenzo Foundation was founded in 1984. It is a registered nonprofit California Corporation with a board of 12 directors, that includes an executive director. It holds monthly meetings with the Guardian of San Lorenzo and his staff to coordinate the volunteer and fundraising activities at San Lorenzo Seminary.
In accordance with its by-laws, the Foundation is the legal entity that administers the support of the Seminary and the volunteer efforts. Volunteers are called the "Friends of San Lorenzo." Our Friends and Volunteers demonstrate their support through donations of time, gifts and money to the Foundation and organize the annual fundraising gala under a lay chairperson. Held in September of each year, our Friends and Volunteers from all over California participate in the fundraiser. Many faiths and denominations are represented. In addition, the Foundation assists as needed in hosting other events to help the friars at the Seminary.
We, the San Lorenzo Foundation, strive to enhance and support the San Lorenzo Seminary and its programs therein by providing funding, tangible resources and spiritual support with the guidance of our Lord Jesus Christ and following in the footsteps of St. Francis.
We, the San Lorenzo Foundation, strive to continue to support the physical and spiritual growth of San Lorenzo Seminary and its endeavors.
