Your giving plans can make an impact today and in the future


Last month, The Catholic Foundation distributed more than $790,000 to 25 grant recipients during the fall grant cycle for 2013 from the Foundation's unrestricted Philanthropy Fund. Those funds are made possible by generous donors who trust The Catholic Foundation to invest and distribute funds to the current charitable needs in our community.


2013 Fall Grant Recipients

How can you do the same?

Consider the following options for giving:


  • Cash
  • Bequests
  • Appreciated securities
  • Life insurance policies
  • Charitable trusts



It may come as a surprise to you, but there are several types of current and planned gifts that can help families achieve other objectives in addition to supporting their favorite charities. Many people take time at the end of each year to reflect on and evaluate their giving and consider different alternatives. Visit our planned giving website to learn more about the various giving vehicles or contact Cheryl Unis Mansour or Michael George to learn about personal charitable giving options that can help you realize many of your own personal goals.
