Welcome to the Saint Peter Claver Foundation

The Saint Peter Claver Foundation is named for Fr. Peter Claver, a 17th Century Spanish Jesuit priest, later named a saint, who ministered to slaves in Columbia, South America and pushed for the abolition of slavery.  The Claver Foundation hopes you will find this website a friendly and accessible portal to the Foundation's values, people, programs and community partners - all of which we hold dear.  Beyond this window is a place to find a group of committed individuals who work together toward being responsible stewards of our programs and projects benefiting the human condition.
