Vocation Fund
The Father Damian Abbaticchio Vocation Fund is intended to assist faithful Catholic men and women who have financial need

Chesapeake will endeavor to support all applicants who meet the eligibility requirements as best possible.

All qualified applicants, upon acceptance, will be eligible for targeted grants, by which donors can direct funding to a specific
individual, as well as general grants in increments of $500 using a rolling schedule to cover all active recipients receiving aid.

order. Recipients must remain in good standing with the Church and enrolled with the seminary or monastic program of record.

2. Provide proof of enrollment or acceptance into a traditional Catholic seminary/convent/etc from the gaining institution. This
documentation should be forwarded directly to Una Voce of Chesapeake from the institution and document associated costs.
3. Obtain a letter of recommendation from your parish priest commenting on your general character, fittingness for this award and
financial need. This letter should be forwarded directly to Una Voce of Chesapeake and on parish letterhead.

Recipients will be required to provide documentation to Una Voce of Chesapeake on a quarterly basis in order to verify continuing
enrollment. The norm for disbursement of funds shall be directly to the institution in the name of the recipient. In the event that a
recipient is no longer enrolled in the program of record, all grants from Una Voce of Chesapeake shall cease with targeted donations
made in the name of that individual returned to the original donors.
