The Catholic Foundation Awards $862,656 in Grants at Fall Ceremony

The Catholic Foundation awarded $862,656 in grants to 19 local schools, churches and community organizations during its fall grant ceremony today at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Community, a past grant recipient of the Foundation.

The Catholic Foundation awarded $862,656 in grants to 19 local schools, churches and community organizations during its fall grant ceremony today at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Community, a past grant recipient of the Foundation.

The grants will help fund major building renovations, finance technology upgrades, purchase vehicles, buy textbooks and build a new church.

"We are pleased that we, along with the help of our board of trustees and generous donors,  continue to make a lasting impact in our community,” said Matt Kramer, President and CEO of The Catholic Foundation. “Careful consideration goes into the grant evaluation and selection process, and we are honored to provide these funds that make a difference in the communities served by these organizations.”

Twice per year, The Catholic Foundation distributes community grants to local schools, parishes and nonprofit organizations at grant ceremonies. Grant requests are reviewed by the Board of Trustees’ Distribution Committee, followed by documented site visits through which the recipients and funding amounts are determined.

Grants are made from the unrestricted Philanthropy Fund and restricted funds of The Catholic Foundation. Individuals or families, named or otherwise, establish restricted funds at the Foundation to benefit their communities today and for future generations.

Factoring the annual spring and fall grants, and all others distributed in 2018, The Catholic Foundation granted $22 million to more than 650 organizations last year.

While impacting lives through the organizations they wish to support, donors benefit from the knowledge and expertise of professional Foundation staff, the maximum in tax benefits, and the assurance that the earnings from their investments will be utilized to further help their local Catholic community.
