Why? Let me give you three compelling reasons:
By using the Foundation for your charitable giving, you still impact the charities most important to you—through The Catholic Foundation—while also impacting the monies that help address the ever changing needs in our Catholic community. We help amplify the impact of your traditional giving to include some of the neediest and pressing projects here at home.
The Catholic Foundation protects donor intent—we ensure gifts for specific projects or purposes are carried out. The Catholic Foundation can accept various types of assets, i.e. stock, land, IRAs, insurance policies, etc as a charitable donation that will maximize your tax deduction.
We handle all of the administration of grantmaking to make the most effective use of your charitable dollars and can even make anonymous gifts on your behalf.
Philanthropy can be practiced by everyone, not just the wealthy. Thank you to all our existing donors and those who came before us—we are truly blessed to have your trust and confidence. To those of you wanting to know more about The Catholic Foundation, we invite you to become part of a family of donors dedicated to the preservation and longevity of our thriving community.
President and CEO of The Catholic Foundation
