In March 2020, the Catholic Foundation of Michigan launched the Catholic Faithful Response Fund for COVID-19 to deploy rapid resources to affected organizations on the front lines during the pandemic.

Through community support, the Catholic Faithful Response Fund raised mission-critical funding to numerous ministries, schools and parishes in southeast Michigan. Our weekly grant cycles empowered our partners to support hundreds of families, senior citizens and vulnerable individuals through local food pantries, shelters, residential facilities, schools and more.

The Catholic Foundation took on all administrative work associated with the granting process, allowing organizations to focus on their critical ministry.
