2020 Community Report: Together As One
In 2020 our Catholic values called us to be generously empathetic, confidently transparent, and faithfully inspired.
Together as one community of faith, the Catholic Foundation of Michigan increased giving by 102%, helping our neighbors in need and strengthening a multitude of parishes, schools, and nonprofits with mission-critical funds – distributing over $2.4M.
Early in the year, in the midst of multiple crises and a time of fear and uncertainty, the Foundation team rapidly responded with clarity, faith, and love. Our trusted relationships, our operational infrastructure, and our ability to be agile allowed us to respond strategically and boldly deploy grants to ministries in urgent need.
