In the spirit of Advent joy, the Catholic Foundation distributed nearly $90,000 in grants at our first annual community grants celebration this week. The 23 local parishes, schools and ministries provide critical needs such as:
- Utilities for a home that provides a safe and loving environment for young pregnant mothers
- Employment for people experiencing homelessness who help beautify Detroit
- Evangelization and revitalization programs in Detroit neighborhoods
- Spanish leadership and marriage preparation programs
- Catholic Education inclusion program for students with developmental challenges
In a little over one year, the Catholic Foundation provided 130 grants totaling over $900,000. As a Catholic community we can be doing more, and we cannot do it alone. We invite you to join us and increase grantmaking.
There has never been a better time to give than the present. Your gift to support our granting ministry may save someone’s life. When you give through the Catholic Foundation, your contributions are compounded and together we amplify God’s love throughout the Archdiocese.
