“The conference was very worth our while. I am hoping we can bring some of this back to our parishes and be a support to pastors. It can benefit all of us.”
The Catholic Foundation distributes grants to Catholic parishes, schools, ministries and organizations that build the mission of the Catholic Church in northwest Pennsylvania.
Grants are provided from each of our three types of endowments: Field of Interest, Designated and Agency.
The majority of grants awarded by the Catholic Foundation are distributed to beneficiaries identified by the founding donor of an endowment and are restricted to those charities in perpetuity.
