Forming young men with generous hearts to become the future shepherds of Christ’s flock has been the joy and the privilege of the Josephinum for well over a century. Since the seminary’s beginning, providing priests to lovingly care for the Lord’s flock has required – and has brought forth – an abundance of generosity from the faithful.


As we strive to form holy, competent priests, we ask you to please consider a gift to the Josephinum. We are indebted to you for your prayers and support and humbled by your faith in our mission. Your generosity is a gift to the seminarians who have embarked on the exciting journey of preparing to become tomorrow’s shepherds.



Online gifts may be made securely and confidentially by credit card. Your information is not sold or provided to any other individual, company or institution. Read our Privacy Statement. 

Electronic Banking Service

The Pontifical College Josephinum offers an electronic banking service to make your support of the seminarians more cost-effective by spreading your gift over 12 monthly donations. Once the EBS has been set up, your gift payments will be transferred automatically from your account. These transfers will occur on the same day each month (usually within the first 10 days of the month). The deduction will continue until you cancel or change the amount of your monthly gift.


If you have questions about the electronic funds transfer, contact the Office of Advancement at 614-985-2234.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Making gifts of stocks and bonds is a tax-wise way to support the Josephinum. Securities that have appreciated in value provide excellent tax advantages for donors. Please contact the Office of Advancement at 614-985-2234 for information on making this kind of charitable gift and the preferred methods of transfer.


Matching Gifts

Many companies provide funds to match gifts that their employees and retirees make to certain non-profit institutions. This is a way to enhance the philanthropy of the company, while encouraging employees and retirees to support their favorite charities. Contact the human resources office of your company to see if it has a matching gift program. Matching gifts are a wonderful way to double, or even triple, the impact of your own generosity.


Memorial and Tribute Gifts

A gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one or friend is a special way to show your support of the Josephinum. Your gift is a thoughtful remembrance that will further the prayer and work of the future priests who will touch the lives of countless others by their service to the Catholic Church.


A memorial gift is given in honor of a deceased loved one or friend, while a tribute gift commemorates a special time in someone's life - perhaps a birthday, anniversary or other memorable event.
