About The Catholic Foundation
What We Do
The Catholic Foundation serves as a community foundation and a trusted charitable giving expert that partners with generous individuals, families and organizations to raise the quality of life in our Catholic community and beyond through charitable grants.
The Catholic Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, 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.
What began as a perpetual endowment, has evolved into a community foundation and grown both monetarily and in services provided. In 1965, managed assets of the Foundation were less than $1 million. At the beginning of 2023, managed assets exceeded $250 million and the Foundation managed more than 540 charitable funds and charitable trusts.
Today, The Catholic Foundation typically awards grants in excess of $19 million annually.
The Catholic Foundation promotes compassionate charitable giving, builds legacies and stewardship that serves donors and the needs of the community.
