The Catholic Foundation has grown from $4.7 million in assets in 1987 to its current value of approximately $64,317,585 as of June 30, 2015. These assets provide a permanent source of additional funding to advance the overall mission of the church, including the diocesan Pastoral Center, parishes, Catholic schools and Catholic Charities.
Endowment funds provide an essential source of financial stability for our diocese. The Foundation Board of Trustees, which is comprised of laity and clergy from the diocese, carefully oversees the management of all investments and distributions.
