The J. Donald Monan, SJ Distinguished Catholic Philanthropy Medal seeks to thank and inspire philanthropists of the Catholic Faith who emulate and personify the vision, character, creativity, and commitment to excellence of the late Rev. J. Donald Monan of the Society of Jesus.

The Monan Medal conferred annually Catholic philanthropists who have invested generously and faithfully in the Catholic Church’s work to lead through exemplary temporal affairs, and who’s giving reflects Fr. Monan’s deeply held belief in collaborative excellence and partnership.
