Angela Moloney Named President & CEO
Angela Moloney was appointed President and CEO of the Catholic Foundation of Michigan on May 1, 2017.
Previously she was Domestic Director at Jesuit Volunteer Corps, a Catholic organization connecting young volunteers with opportunities to serve marginalized communities. She began her affiliation with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in 2007.
In her Foundation role, Moloney is responsible for oversight of the nonprofit’s operations including staffing, investor relations, donor and grantee communications, and partnerships. Importantly, these partnerships include working with Detroit Archbishop Allen Vignernon, whose role is to ensure the organization’s Catholicity; the board; and the Merrill Lynch investment team to ensure that investments are in alignment with socially responsible investment guidelines according to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.Moloney has worked nearly 20 years in a variety of roles within Catholic organizations including as a high school campus minister, a missionary, and a leader in urban and rural Catholic organizations. This experience gives her a unique perspective regarding the needs of nonprofits as well as the generosity of those who want to support these ministries.
“I know what it’s like to be burdened with fundraising and operational concerns instead of focusing on service to others. Our goal is to relieve the stress from those doing ministry by connecting them with generous donors who want to invest according to their Catholic values,” Moloney said. “I’m humbled to have the opportunity to lead the Catholic Foundation of Michigan during this exciting time as the southeast Michigan community works to unleash the Gospel.”

She has a servant’s heart and a great love for our Catholic Church. Importantly, she has integrity, vision, drive and incredible energy. The board is confident we’ve selected the right leader to launch and grow the Catholic Foundation of Michigan, which will support key ministries in the greater Detroit area including parishes and Catholic schools.”
