Our Mission


Pave the Way Foundation was founded in 2002 to initiate cultural, educational and technological exchanges between religions, facilitating gestures of goodwill. We identify non-theological obstacles in the diplomatic and political arena, unraveling and eliminating the barriers of disinformation that serve to stoke distrust between religions. Working quietly behind the scenes, we talk to people who will not talk to each other, consequently, PTWF is the most effective organization in the world "that no one has ever heard of".

Embrace the Similarities Savor the Differences

Our motto is simple. We embody the messages of charity, love, and responsibility for every human being, common to all faiths and beliefs. We embrace our similarities and savor our differences, by appreciating the positive and practical expression of the World's diverse religions and beliefs. We must not allow the differences to poison us, with bigotry, hatred and intolerance. Instead, we learn, enhance our own beliefs, and initiate trusted and positive exchanges.



Pave the Way Foundation was co-founded by Meredith and Gary Krupp in 2002. Gary Krupp is uniquely suited to build bridges between religions. Gary is the only Jewish man in history to be knighted by Pope John Paul II, raised in rank by Pope Benedict XVI to the Order of St.Gregory, and invested by permission of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as an Officer Brother in the Order of St. John. Being a trusted member of the Papal household has enabled him to act as a catalyst in initiating exchanges and eliminating obstacles to positive relations between the Abrahamic faiths. 


"It is with affection that I greet the members of the Pave the Way Foundation and I thank Mr. Krupp for the
kind words which he has addressed to me on your behalf"
Pope John Paul II- January 18, 2005
