Generous donors to the Catholic Foundation help to strengthen and grow the Church's mission and ministries throughout northwest Pennsylvania. In gratitude for their generous support, Catholic Foundation board members celebrated an evening of appreciation with donors and legacy society members at the Bayfront Sheraton Hotel in Erie.

Legacy Society members are those individuals who choose to establish an endowment fund or leave an estate gift that will provide benefits to a Catholic ministry in perpetuity through the Catholic Foundation. Learn more about the Legacy Society.
