Our Story

Established in 1984, The Catholic Foundation is an independent, authentically Catholic, charitable organization that maximizes personal giving to transform lives through parishes, education, vocations, and ministries.

Ways To Give

We believe you don’t need to be wealthy or have every need met to be generous. Our team has the ability and experience to multiply gifts through intentional stewardship to transform any act of giving into something greater than the sum of its parts.
