Investing in the Future of Our Faith


Planned Gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve our faith for the future.

The programs of the Catholic Foundation depend upon your Planned Giving and Generosity. To that end, there are a myriad of easy Gifting Options from which you can choose - from naming the Catholic church as a beneficiary in your Will to a more complex Trust arrangement. These gifts can establish named endowments in support of a particular parish, its ministries and/or school. These gifts could be used to underwrite the cost of a specific Archdiocesan program or reduce the cost of tuition at one of our high schools or elementary schools. The choice is yours as an Ultimate Act of Stewardship benefiting the Catholic church.

The Catholic Foundation website is easy-to-understand and will assist you in finding the Planned Giving alternative that is best suited for your individual circumstances. Thank you for visiting our site and for your ongoing support as we continue Investing in the Future of Our Faith.
