In 2022, the Catholic Foundation of Michigan celebrated a significant milestone, marking five years since a passionate group of visionary leaders established this lay-led Catholic community foundation with the goal to transform lives and proclaim the Gospel through philanthropy.

Through volunteer leadership and extraordinary generosity, our early founders inspired others who have contributed more than $52 million in gifts since the Foundation’s launch in 2017.

The first five years of the Catholic Foundation have had an impact on a scale our founders could never have imagined.

  • 5 years and a combined impact of $16 million granted to our community, changing and saving countless lives
  •  5 years and 330+ faithful students supported through generosity to receive a dynamic Catholic education
  •  5 years and the phenomenal growth of 220 charitable funds that support the short and long-term sustainability of 450+ beloved ministries

As we celebrate, we invite you to read our collective accomplishments and be inspired by the stories of individuals and families who, with Christ as the center, are making a lasting impact in our community through their giving.
