Our Unique and Growing Ministry
The Catholic Community Foundation is an autonomous pious foundation formed under Canons 1303, §1,1 and 114, §2 and incorporated as a nonprofit entity in the State of Texas. Organized in 2006 under the ecclesial authority of the Archbishop of San Antonio, the foundation represents an emerging ministry to develop the financial resources necessary to support, serve and otherwise benefit the apostolic activities of the Roman Catholic Church and its related institutions.
The foundation is designed and commissioned to provide financial management services, through socially responsible investment models, for dioceses, Catholic institutions, parishes and religious orders by managing, safeguarding and growing their financial resources in support of their ministries. The foundation also serves the needs of the philanthropic laity who wish to support the Catholic ministries of their choice through either donations, the establishment of a donor advised fund or through planned giving. The foundation also offers Catholic philanthropists the opportunity to join its Legacy Society through any of these giving avenues.
To receive, manage, safeguard and grow
investments supporting organizations and
donors aligned with the Catholic Faith.
Independent Catholic Foundations and Dioceses
More and more dioceses are seeking the services of independent Catholic Foundations to assist them in the preservation, protection and growth of their financial assets. The problem is that such foundations are expensive to establish and expensive to maintain unless the fund has enough critical mass of investment assets to make it self-sustaining. The Catholic Community Foundation is designed to serve the needs of dioceses without requiring an investment of working capital or incurring large legal expenses.
Our services to dioceses include several options designed to preserve, protect and/or grow diocesan financial resources with no upfront costs. In this day of such low interest earning rates, combined with an incredibly litigious environment, the Catholic Community Foundation offers solid solutions and alternatives with traditionally better-than-index returns (the net return to our clients for 2012 was 13.13%). See our Financial Information in order to learn how this growing trend is benefiting the Universal Church.
The Catholic Community Foundation is open only to organizations listed in the Official Catholic Directory and the laity wishing to support the ministry of the Church. We are here to serve the needs of the Church through our very unique ministry by managing cash and investment resources through several options and an array of investment models and giving vehicles.
If you have an interest in having us help you, please contact Jeff Jung, Chief Operating Officer, at 210-734-1910 or at email@example.com.
Feast Day: September 21st
Patron saint of bankers and accountants
St. Matthew, you were first a tax collector and then, following Christ’s call, a gatherer of souls. Later you wrote the Gospel accounts of what Jesus, descendant of David, said and did as Teacher and Savior. Dear Saint Matthew, we pray for your blessings and guidance for the Catholic Community Foundation and for all who seek our help that we might imitate your example by being careful and faithful stewards for those who entrust their resources to us. Amen.
