These words from our patroness, St. Katharine of Drexel, are appropriate for the work with which we are entrusted: inviting Catholics in southeast Michigan to Build for Eternity. Therefore, it is with joy, humility and gratitude that we close the books on 2017 at the Catholic Foundation of Michigan. We are building the support structures of the Foundation that will enable the faithful work of Catholics to endure.

What a grace-filled year it has been. We are happy to announce that we closed 2017 with 25 new funds: 13 donor advised funds and 12 endowments totaling over $4 million of investments. Importantly, we granted more than $75,000 to area parishes, schools and ministries, helping to strengthen their missionary efforts. We are full of gratitude for your participation and support that ensured a successful first year of the Catholic Foundation of Michigan!

Founder’s Circle membership is extended through the end of the year. Please join us and support those doing God’s work in southeast Michigan, and beyond.

May the Holy Spirit continue to guide our mission in 2018. St. Katharine of Drexel, pray for us!

Angela Moloney, President & CEO
