How We Work Events

What We Do

The Catholic Foundation was established in 1955 by a group of visionary Catholic business and professional leaders in the midst of a period of remarkable growth and prosperity in the Dallas area to ensure that the physical and spiritual needs of those in the community who were less fortunate would never be overlooked.

2019 Annual Report Showcases Outstanding Year

With appreciation to Catholic Foundation donors past and present, and in recognition of long-term relationships cultivated by the staff, 2019 was an outstanding year.

We invite you to read our 2019 annual report and learn more about the impact of The Catholic Foundation, our many 2019 milestones and how we’ve positioned the Foundation for several new initiatives.

Thanks to donors who generously expressed their charitable vision in 2019, unrestricted and restricted contributions were in excess of $27 million last year, a larger total contribution than 2018 and 2017 combined.

In terms of grants awarded, the impact was equally significant. In 2019, The Catholic Foundation awarded more than $33 million in the form of 2,100 grants to over 660 organizations.

Today, our Foundation is strong based upon our community of compassionate people making a positive impact in the Dallas area and beyond.

Looking ahead, we are confident that The Catholic Foundation will continue growing even stronger as we build upon our legacy that serves the here and now, and the future.
