For each of you who have given to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, who have remembered the Church in your will, or who have supported an endowment – thank you! Together we provide the stewardship in our diocese to educate, minister, and care for others.
The Catholic Foundation uses endowed funds to support the long-term needs of parishes, schools, ministries and charities.
As grateful Catholics we are called to share the many gifts and talents we have received from God. Promoting the principles of Pray, Serve, Give, the Catholic Foundation assists parishes and schools with education, training and materials to foster Catholic stewardship.
The Grants Development Office of the Foundation was created to assist diocesan organizations in securing external resources to support their missions. Grants are awarded directly to designated parishes, schools and ministries.
The Catholic Foundation manages endowments to help families pay for Catholic education. Help us make quality Catholic education accessible for deserving students in our community through scholarships.
