Grants – Impacting Our Community

Supporting What is Important to You

 

Annually, the Catholic Foundation offers a competitive granting process that makes awards from our field of interest granting funds. Anyone can support these funds to benefit their communities today and for future generations. As a community foundation, we strive to make the granting process as open and clear as possible and empower local parishes, schools, and ministries to make the most impact in our neighborhoods.
