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.
What current projects or initiatives are you working on?
Operating support for:
- International Justice Mission
- Bethany Christian Services adoption agency
- Several crisis pregnancy centers in Southeastern Pennsylvania
- Angel Tree Summer Camp for children of incarcerated parents
- Orphan care in Zimbabwe through Forgotten Voices International
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.
