The Catholic Foundation Advisory Council

The work of The Catholic Foundation is further enhanced by a volunteer Advisory Council, a group of individuals recognized for their contributions to the Catholic community and members of the professional community of attorneys, accountants and other financial experts.

In addition, most past chairmen of the Board of Trustees of The Catholic Foundation serve as members of the Advisory Council. Nominated by the Board of Trustees, Advisory Council members serve to increase the visibility and reputation of The Catholic Foundation in the community and add to the expertise available to the Foundation.
