The Assisi Fund

The St. Francis of Assisi Fundestablished in 2017 with initial funding from the Catholic Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees, presents an opportunity for Catholic faithful and other benefactors to make a sustaining contribution to help alleviate the ill effects of poverty for children and families in desperate need. 

Please prayerfully consider supporting this flagship fund, created in the spirit of St. Francis, and as a response to Pope Francis’ frequent echoes of his namesake’s call to aid the poor and the marginalized in our community.
