Introducing the Catholic Fraternity Fund - a Resource to Other Catholic Foundations and Dioceses
The Catholic Fraternity Fund is a wholly owned nonprofit subsidiary of the Catholic Community Foundation. Its purpose is to work with other foundations and dioceses to provide the support services needed to assist them in managing their investments in a pooled fund that takes advantage of the critical mass needed for risk mitigation, diversification, appreciation potential and lower costs.
In today’s complex and volatile financial markets more and more parishes and dioceses are seeking the services of independent Catholic foundations to assist them in managing and protecting their cash assets. However, such foundations are very expensive to establish and maintain unless your fund has enough critical mass of invested assets to sustain itself.
The Catholic Fraternity Fund is designed to serve the needs of dioceses and other foundations without requiring an investment of working capital for operations or incurring the significant legal expenses for formation and compliance. This savings is accomplished by the “pooling” of Fraternity Funds to reduce risk and to increase investment opportunities within an already established and compliant structure.
The Foundation, and The Fund, are designed to provide investment services through socially responsible investment models in accordance with Church teaching.

The Catholic Community Foundation and the Catholic Fraternity Fund work exclusively with organizations listed in the Official Catholic Directory and lay persons who wish to support the ministry of the Church through a Donor Advised Fund, Planned Giving/Bequest, or by outright donation.
We are here to serve the needs of the Church through our unique ministry of managing cash and investment resources through an array of investment models and giving vehicles.

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.
