Statewide Charities

Each year, the KJT Board of Directors names specific charities and asks that societies hold fundraising efforts to support these charities.

Priest and Religious Retirement Fund

Our priests and religious have dedicated their lives in service to the Church and God's people.  The board of directors of KJT has chosen the Priest and Religious Retirement Fund as one of its statewide charity projects in an effort to give back and assist the clergy and religous in their needs that they encounter later in life. 

Funds raised by each society stay in the diocese in which the society is located so any donation will be directly helping your local priests and religious.

Seminarian Education Fund

It currently costs over $30,000 per year to educate each seminarian.  With this in mind, the KJT board of directors has chosen to have the Seminarian Education Fund as one of its statewide charity fundraisers.  Please consider making donations to this worthy cause as we help to educate our future priests who will celebrate the Sacraments for us and preach the Good News of the Gospels. 

Funds raised by each society stay in the diocese in which the society is located so donations will directly be helping to educate future priests for your diocese.

Camp For All

Camp For All is a unique, barrier free camp working in partnership with other non-profits to enrich the lives of children and adults with challenging illnesses or special needs and their families.

In 1993, two Houston physicians who cared for children with special needs teamed up with a parent who lost a child to cancer.  Their mission was to create a unique place that would embrace those who because of an illness or disability had limited opportunities to experience the joy of camp.

In 1998, the dream became reality, as Camp For All hosted its first campers and today welcomes more than 8,000 children and adults throughout the year.  The barrier free campsite works in collaboration with 56 non-profits and has served more than 100,000 since the gates opened.
