New Member Spotlight: The Pilgrim Foundation

Friday, May 29, 2009

We recently welcomed The Pilgrim Foundation to Philanthropy New York. Suzanne Daniel, Director of the foundation, shares details about Pilgrim and its latest projects in this Member Spotlight.

What are your foundation’s primary areas of focus?
Our mission is broad—we are dedicated to protecting children and the most vulnerable members of society by offering financial support to Christian organizations with the same goal. Specifically, we have provided funding to crisis pregnancy centers, orphan care programs, adoption agencies, schools, housing providers, legal service providers, and more, both domestically and internationally.

Good Works, a Pilgrim Foundation grantee.

What current projects or initiatives are you working on?

Operating support for:









We are currently helping to fund construction of a new home for orphaned and abandoned girls in Calcutta, India, through Enterprise Development and the Christian Service Society.










Are you looking to connect or collaborate with other funders on a particular issue or project?
Yes, we are interested in getting involved with faith-based foster care providers, adoption agencies, and crisis pregnancy centers in New York City. Since we have limited experience with New York’s child welfare system, we would love to collaborate with funders already established here.
