The Instruments of Peace Fund

The Archdiocese of Chicago has launched an anti-violence initiative to increase the capacity and reach of current programs that address the root causes of violence and to identify and actively seek collaboration with like-purposed organizations. The Archdiocese is seeking out and investing in new approaches and collaborations to break the cycles of family instability, despair, racism and poverty and create conditions for peace.

As part of these efforts, the Archdiocese will create a venture philanthropy fund called the Instruments of Peace Fund. Cardinal Blase J. Cupich provided $250,000 from his personal charitable-works account for this fund. The fund will be used to invest in new anti-violence approaches and expand promising programs. Pope Francis sent a letter to Cardinal Cupich to express his support and encouragement for the efforts the Archdiocese and other Chicagoans are making to create peace.
